Apple Crumb Pie

One of my childhood favorites was my mother’s apple crumb pie. In the fall grandpa’s apple trees would be full with wonderful crisp apples. On the weekends, if my mother had some time over, she would bake apple crumb pie. The fantastic aroma of cinnamon and apples would fill the house as she baked. Wonderful! This one is on my childhood top ten list; it is tasty and easy to make. Serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream or just some drop of whipped cream.


Ben Svensson



1 ½ stick of butter

½ Cup of sugar

1 Cup of flour

6 midsized apples





Work butter and sugar in a bowl, add the flour. The dough should let go from the edges of the bowl and not stick. Grease a 12 inch pan. Peel the apples and then use a cheese cutter to slice the apples (like the one in the picture below). After 1-2 apples sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and then continue slicing 1-2 apples and then sprinkle again. Slice the last of the apples and sprinkle one more time with more cinnamon and sugar. Crumble the dough on top of the bed of sliced apples. You do not need to push the dough down, just let it fall in crumbs so that it covers the apples (see example below).
Bake the pie in 390-395 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the pie is golden brown and you can easily poke through the pie with a fork.
