Crumbly Apple Pie

Crumbly Apple Pie created by CoOkAdDiCt

The buttery brown sugar topping is a great variation on this classic apple pie! Best of all, the steam from the baking apples isn't held in by a top crust...apples are tender, not mushy and bottom crust isn't soggy!

    I used a ready-made crust. For the fillings, I used a mix of golden delicious and red apples. I also reduced the sugar to about 1/3 cup for the topping after reading several reviews here. The pie is delicious but the topping was still way too sweet and too much.

    I gave it 4 stars because the filling is fantastic but the topping is way to sweet. Next time i would add less sugar for the topping and mske less of it as well. Maybe also add a tbsp of flour in the filling. I found it a little too runny. But overall the taste was good and easy to make

    Wow, I can't believe I forgot to review this! This pie is fantastic, I've never made a pie and was able to follow these directiond very well. My friends were uber impressed that I have made the crust and YUM!! The crust is easy, the apples the perfect amount of sweet and tender and the crumbles are awesome. It looked like too much tome when I piled it on the pie but baked down to a great crunchy sweet top layer!
