"From my falling apart cookbook entitled Best-Loved Pennsylvania Dutch Recipes. Simple ingredients, easy assembly and spectacular presentation. When pressed for time, I have been known to substitute canned apple pie filling. This also works well for Cherry Crumb Pie by using canned cherry filling plus 1/4 teaspoon almond extract. A lifetime ago, on holidays, I was not allowed to enter my ex-inlaws house unless I had a Cherry Crumb Pie in my hands! ;) NOTE: If you use canned filling, just bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until topping is brown."

"The first time I followed the recipe and everyone loved it. Then I started some changes swapping out raisins for dried cranberries and using pecans. They loved that as well.
Then I changed out the fruit, using bartlett pears and ginger for the filling and went with the raisins. What joy!"
"I am so glad I made this pie because it is the best Dutch Apple Crumb Pie I've ever tasted! I followed the recipe pretty much as directed, but added 2 Tbsp. of flour to the apple mixture (as all I had on hand were Gala and Fuji apples, they were pretty juicy and I didn't want a runny pie) and also added an extra tsp. of lemon juice and added an extra 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon. I chopped up the raisins for the filling and added about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans in the crumb topping. I had to bake the pie an extra 10 minutes. I wasn't sure it would turn out using Gala and Fuji apples, but it was absolutely the best pie ever! Thanks so much for posting."
"Fantastic pie! The topping is buttery, and rich! I added 1/4 cup chopped pecans to the topping! Fabulous!"
"This was excellent! The whole family liked it. <br/><br/>For the pie crust, I used http://www.food.com/recipe/my-no-roll-pie-crust-51537 Following some of the previous comments, I increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp and added 1/2 tsp nutmeg to the filling. For the topping, I added 1/2 cup ground nuts-I used a mix of almond and walnuts since that's what was in my pantry. I'm sure other nuts would work well also.<br/><br/>Definitely serve it warm. Doesn't even need whipped creme or other topping. Also, I made this the day before serving and it kept very well."
"This is the second time I have used this recipe so thought best to get this posted ASAP. I always premake at least 1/2 dozen pie crusts which are then frozen and thawed when I want them so that I can make a pie at the drop of a hat. I also usually have apple pie filling made up ahead and canned, but this last years apple harvest was taken over by tent moths and we had no apples. I found this recipe wanting to make up a pie for my boyfriend, it is easy, and oh my goodness delicious, have received rave notices on this pie both times I have made it, and had to double the recipe this last time as two pies were requested so he can take one home with him :)... Make this recipe as directed and you won't be sorry!!! Thank You for a great pie recipe."
"Amazing! I used a Pillsbury refrigerated crust for the bottom and followed the filling recipe except I omitted lemon juice and raisins; to the topping mixture I added 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans and 1/4 cup rolled oats. We ate it warm with whipped cream and it was divine. Thanks, Kat's Mom!"
"I love this recipe! Very simple, I used pre-made pie crust that I always keep in the freezer, and added extra cinnamon and some nutmeg. Everyone loved it, I have made it a dozen times in the last 6 weeks. Very easy to have the ingredients in the house, and have a homemade pie cooling on the counter with very little effort. Thanks for posting this one!"
"I made this on 11/25/09 for part of our Thanksgiving Day meal. And I'm sorry to have waited so long to rate this. ( You know how busy it gets, at Holiday time :)To save time on the crust, a store bought one was used. I followed the recipe as it was written except for the apples, I used three large and I do mean large Jazz Apples ( I ended up with about 6 cups ) the amount of sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon remained the same.Since the raisins were an option they were left out. I did add about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the topping mixture.But I think that if this is made again, I'm cutting the amount of flour in topping down to 1/2 cup. To me it just seemed too much topping to the amount of apples. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) ""
"Very tasty, however it is missing something (nuts, nutmeg, ?). We did LOVE eating the coated apples. Thanks."
"An excellent pie. I used premade graham cracker crusts and this was done in no time. Thanks for the recipe."
"YUM! Easy to make, easier to eat! I served with a dollop of Cool Whip. I ended up using 6 peeled, cored green apples - they were on the small side. I used whole wheat flour for the crumb topping (couldn't find the white flour in the pantry!) and added in a small handful of regular rolled oats for a little texture. I made this for dessert for Father's Day - BIG HIT! Thanks for posting this great recipe!"
"I love Dutch Apple Crumb Pie and this one is a wonderful pie. Substituted Splenda for the sugar and it was delicious. Thanks for sharing."
"A wonderful recipe. Turned out perfect. I served it for Christmas dinner and received many complments on the crumb topping. I did sprinkle some chopped pecans on top as well. I will keep this in my pie cookbook to use over and over."
"BEST APPLE PIE EVER! I added 1/2 cup of chopped nuts. Recipe is a keeper. WOW!"
"This was wonderful. My family begs me to make it now, and the topping is absolutely wonderful!!!"
"Kat's Mom thank you so very much for posting this great apple pie recipe! My grandma passed away a couple years ago and she made an apple pie my dad loved. I wanted to surprise him for Thanksgiving and bake a pie for him and he loved yours! I used the Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust, my crusts are not edible, Roma apples, and did not add the raisins. Added a bit of grated nutmeg along with extra cinnamon for his taste, a ver y easy pie to put together. Loved the topping as it wasnt overly crunchy. A new family favorite!"
