Ingredients

  • 1 frozen pie crust
Topping
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter
Filling
  • 8 Granny Smith apples
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Topping:
  • Combine all topping ingredients using a fork until completely mixed and crumbly.
Filling:
  • Peel, core, and slice apples into thin slices (approximately ⅛ inch). Toss apple slices with sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour.
  • Layer apple slices in pie shell (it will be really full) and pour any leftover juice over the apples. Top apple slices with topping and pat it down over the apples. Place pie pan on a cookie sheet this helps protect your oven from drippings.
  • Bake at 450° for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350° and bake an additional 45-55 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on your crumble topping. If it starts to brown too early, place a small piece of foil on top to keep it from burning.
  • Poke the center of the pie to make sure the apples are soft all of the way through.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream or cool whip. YUM!!
