Serves: 8-10 slices
Ingredients
  • 1 ready-made deep dish pie crust or a homemade crust (only the bottom shell)
  • 6-8 Granny Smith Apples (I like to substitute 2 with a different variety--Gala or Golden Delicious)
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • dash of ground nutmeg
  • CRUMB TOPPING
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp light-brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp melted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Remove pie crust from the freezer, if using a ready-made crust, and thaw while making the mixture.
  3. Peel, core, and thinly slice apples--6 cups total.
  4. Place sliced apples in a medium-size bowl and toss in lemon juice.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well.
  6. Sprinkle over the apple slices and toss or stir until evenly coated. Set aside.
  7. Prepare crumble topping by combining flour, 3 Tbsp granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well. Then add melted butter. Stir until everything holds together and is crumbly. Set aside.
  8. Pour the apple mixture into the thawed, uncooked pie crust. The dish will be really full. Mound apples toward the middle, if needed.
  9. Next, evenly cover the top of the apples with the crumble topping.
  10. Place the pie on a cookie sheet to bake in case it overflows.
  11. Bake pie at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes. After 40 minutes, lightly cover the top of the pie with a sheet of foil to keep the crumble from getting too dark.
  12. Let the pie cool completely before cutting it into slices.
  13. *If not eating the pie right away, store it in the refrigerator after it cools. Refrigerate any leftovers.
  14. *Pie can also be frozen once it has completely cooled. Wrap it tightly with foil and place in a large Ziploc bag or cover with plastic wrap, if you don't have a large Ziploc bag.
  15. Enjoy!
