This apple pie recipe uses fresh apples and is topped with a crumble topping for a perfect slice. For best results, choose apples that are good for baking, meaning that they are firm and will hold their shape while being baked and not turn mushy or mealy.Try mixing Granny Smith with Honeycrisp apples. For this recipe, we used a mixture of ground cinnamon, allspice, vanilla extract, and don’t forget a pinch of salt to bring out all the flavors. We added a streusel topping for an easy preparation and delicious crumbly texture.

For the filling

In a large bowl combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and salt. Mix together gently to combine, being careful not to break the apples. Let stand while you make the topping.

For the topping

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachement, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and butter until the butter is the size of lentils. Stir in the oats.

For assembly

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Fit the pie crust to a 9-inch pie pan and trim the edges. Pour the apple mixture into the pie shell. Cover with the crumb topping, patting down, and making sure the apple slices aren't peaking out. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until the top is golden brown, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake until the apples are tender and juices are bubbling around the edges. Cool for about 30 minutes before slicing. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Apple Pie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Apple Pie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
