Crunch Top Apple Pie

Crunch Top Apple Pie created by MariaMiller

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

    I have been searching for this recipe for a very long time. I have made it many times and lost the recipe. It is always a favorite of anyone that tries it. My search is finally over. It's fall. Time to bake Sunset's Crunch Top Apple Pie

    This was pretty good.. I loved the topping but did not use nuts as I did not have any.. I also cut the softened butter into the topping rather than melt it which worked well for me. The only thing I didn't care for was that the macintosh apples came out rather mushy and hubby said they were a little too sweet, but besides that it was a pretty good pie

    This crumb topping was delicious! I did make a few changes, (1) I cut softened butter into the crumb mixture before topping the pies rather than drizzling on melted butter, (2) I used half white and half brown sugar. I doubled this recipe as I needed topping for two pies -- and I ended up with WAY too much topping. Great news though, the leftovers worked great for a quickly thrown together peach crisp :)<br/><br/>Thanks for the great recipe!

    I made this tonight for dessert after a big turkey dinner for friends. Was a big hit with those who could handle dessert after their 3rd helping of dinner. I will make it again and plan on bringing it home to my mother's for Thanksgiving. Thanks Di! ***** Updated to add the stars in - sorry it took me so long Di!
