Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add white sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl mix sliced apples with nutmeg, ginger, cinnnamon, and vanilla extract (although for most everyone else the full tablespoon of cinnamon might be a lil much *my hubbys a cinnamon addict* x3 you can cut it down to 1/2 tablespoon)
  3. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with your apples, mounded slightly. Pour sauce over apples.
  4. Bake for 30 mins at 400°F Now for the crumble topping.
  5. I actually ganked this crumble topping from ratherbeswimmin <3~. Add flour, sugar, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in the container of a food processor; pulse several times to mix. Scatter the butter over the top; pulse repeatedly until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Empty the crumbs into a large bowl and rub them together between your fingers until you have large, buttery crumbs.
  6. Remove pie from oven and lower temperature to 375°. Carefully pour the crumble mixture in the center of the pie, spreading them over the surface evenly. Bake for another 30-40 mins you may have to cover with aluminum foil the final 15 mins to prevent your topping from burning. So keep a close eye on your pie ^.^.

This pie is extreeeeeemely sweet, and I even cut out some of the sugar. You can not even taste the apples - just sweet and the spices. Cut the sugar by at least a third, cut some of the flour from the crumble and add more oats. We liked the spices.

soooo good, im not an apple pie fan, my husband is, I made this and its delicious!! reminds me of the cracker barrels apple dunpling, I served it with vanilla ice cream, and when i made it I used a deep dish pie plate.. I made it with the amount of spices used in recipie my hubby likes it that way , will make again, and I never use a recipie for my pie as I am an advanced baker and have been making apple pies for 22 yrs, scince I was 10..they were my pepe's favorite and he would have loved this, I highly recommend it, only issue is it does make a lot of crumble topping, but it's oh so good!!

This pie is very heavy on seasoning. It's very rich. Even with the halfed cinnamon, it' too much. I would consider going without the ginger and nutmeg on my next round. And 8 apples is enough for two pies. I ended up doubling the recipe due to the apple excess.
