Apple Crumb Pie

This is the first day of Spring. Thank Goodness! What a winter the world has been through this year.  Never mind, we all need is a dessert tonight and here we go.

  • Pastry for 8″ square pan
  • 6-8 apples, cored, peeled and sliced thin
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 – 3/4 tbsp. cinnamon (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 6-7 tbsp. butter (not margarine)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line the bottom of an 8″ square pan with your favourite recipe for pastry (or store bought will do).

In a large bowl, mix together the sliced apples, 1/2 cup of sugar and cinnamon. Toss with your hands gently to coat the apples. Pour this into the baking pan.

Mix together 1/3 cup of sugar, the flour and oatmeal and the cold butter. Cut in with two forks or pastry cutter until crumbly and sprinkle over all the apples. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Watch that it isn’t burning.

Turn the broiler on and for the last 2-3 minutes, broil the top to get a nice golden brown colour.

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream or cheddar cheese. For a special touch, drizzle a caramel sauce over the surface.


In a few words, yum yum and yum.
