Apple Crumble Pie

The cinnamon oat crumble topping on this Apple Crumble Pie is a delicious twist to classic apple pie!

This past weekend, we had a really nice visit with my Mom & Dad, so comfort food was on the menu! My family loves apple pie (all pies really!), especially my Dad. I only had one crust in the freezer, a huge bag of apples, and ingredients for a crumble, so I thought, I’d put them all together and make an Apple Crumble Pie!

Pie + Crumble = Delicious!

This recipe is apple pie meets apple crumble. Just imagine it like this: a flaky pie crust bottom, a flavourful apple pie filling, topped with a delicious cinnamon oat crumb topping…like a streusel topping with oats. So much deliciousness in one dessert.

How to Serve this Apple Crumble Pie:

This pie is perfection on it’s own, but it’s super amazing served with whipped cream or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. And a piece of cheddar cheese if that’s your thing…it’s a thing, you should try it!

Apple Crumble Pie Tips & Tricks

  • Apples: I always use McIntosh apples for my baking. But you can use Granny Smith apples, Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, or Braeburn.
  • Pie Crust: This pie crust recipe makes 2 – 9″ crusts, so split the ball in 2, and freeze one half of the pie dough for later (just wrap it tightly in plastic wrap).
  • Baking Tip #1: Place a baking sheet on the rack under the pie to catch any mixture that might bubble over…this will help keep your oven floor clean.
  • Baking Tip #2: While your pie is baking, and you see that the outer edge of the crust is starting to get darker than the rest of the crust, you can cover just the edges with tin foil to prevent burning.
  • Leftovers: I just keep leftovers covered on my kitchen counter for a day or 2…it never lasts that long. There’s no need to keep it in the fridge.

I hope you love this apple crumble pie recipe!

Units Scale

Pie Crust:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening (lard)
  • 1/4 cup water

Apple Pie Mix:

  • 56 medium apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 23 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Crumble Topping:

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp melted butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Pie Crust:

  1. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl.
  2. With a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening until the particles are pea sized.
  3. Sprinkle in water, 1 tsp or so at a time, mixing lightly with a fork. Don’t over mix or the crust will be tough.
  4. Press into a ball. It is okay if it is crumbly. In fact crumbly makes for a tender, flaky crust!
  5. This recipe makes 2 – 9″ crusts, so split the ball in 2, and freeze one half for later.
  6. Use a rolling pin to roll out the bottom crust.
  7. Press the crust into a 9″ pie plate.

Apple Pie Mix:

  1. In a separate bowl combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.  Set aside.

Crumble Topping:

  1. In another bowl combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter.

Putting it all together:

  1. To the crust in the pie plate, add the apple filling, then top with crumble mixture.
  2. Bake for about 1 hour, or until you see the apple mix bubbling up from under the crumble.
