Apple crumble pie


  • 8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 premade pie shell
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted (or 1/2 cup, if preferred)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cinnamon and 1/4 cup of sugar. Stir apples into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, making sure the mixture completely covers the apples. Spoon the apples into a pie shell.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, 1 cup of sugar, salt and baking powder. Sift three times.
  4. Stir the beaten egg into the flour mixture until the mixture forms large crumbs. Toss the mixture over the apples but be careful not to crush the crumbs. Pour the melted butter on top, covering the crumbs.
  5. Bake 1 hour. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
