Pie has a buttery crisp pastry crust on the bottom which is topped with thin slices of apples coated in a delicious apple syrup. The pie is then sprinkled with a sweet and buttery crumble mixture. Serve it plain or with a scoop of vanilla or caramel ice cream.
A thick layer of finely textured crumb topping crowns a tall mound of apple filling.
You can’t go wrong with a good apple crumble recipe and this one has a lovely, golden oaty topping.The crumb topping of this pie is awesome, which may explain why dessert always disappears fast. Or maybe it’s the chunky apple filling. Either way, it’s a family tradition.When you pull the baked pie out of the oven there is the temptation to cut into it right away. Resist if you can. Fruit pies need several hours to set so that when you finally cut into them the fruit is juicy but these juices will not run.
