Crunch Top Apple Pie

Recipe by Diana Adcock

The original recipe was a 1953 Sunset Mag recipe. I've added more nuts and cinnamon and less flour. It's awsome!

Di, I owe you an apology because I forgot to rate this pie probably because just as quickly as it was made it was gone!!! I used macintosh apples and they added such a great taste. Served warm with vanilla bean ice cream...oh soooo good! This was great and easy to make. Thanks for the recipe, I plan on making it again it was the first time ever I made an apple pie, can't wait to make it again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place apples in a bowl and toss with lemon juice.
  2. Pour into unbaked pie shell.
  3. Mix together remaining ingredients, except butter and sprinkle evenly over apples.
  4. DRIZZLE melted butter over the top, cover every square inch and bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
  5. Cover with foil if needed as the nuts tend to burn.
  6. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream.
