How to Make Apple Crumb Pie:
- Prepare crust in a food processor with all purpose flour, butter, salt, sugar and ice water. Divide dough in half, form each half into a disc shape. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate one hour.
- You will use one disc for this pie, reserve the other for another use. Wrap dough with two layers of plastic wrap and one layer of foil and freeze up to one month.
- Roll pie dough into a circle, the size of your pie plate. Place in pie plate.
- Peel and cut apples into chunks. Mix with brown sugar, apple pie spice, cornstarch, salt and boiled cider.
- Fill pie dough with apple mixture.
- Prepare the crumb topping by adding brown sugar, pecans, graham cracker crumbs and butter into a bowl. Mix until well combined and crumbly.
- Sprinkle over apple mixture.
- Bake at 400° for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Check pie at about 30 minutes and cover loosely with foil if topping is getting dark brown.
- Allow pie to cool slightly before serving. Top with ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
Pie isn’t always easy and my pies are not always perfect. However, my family loves it and so why in the world should it have to be perfect? It doesn’t!
Secret Ingredient for the Best Apple Pie:
In my box of goodies was a coupon for King Arthur Flour, Apple Pie Spice and my new favorite secret ingredient: Boiled Apple Cider.
It added an out of this world flavor to this pie! It’s like a syrup and will now be a key ingredient in my baked goods.
I may have to make a batch of Easy Belgian Waffles to enjoy it on also. So good! I could spend all of my dollars at King Arthur Flour. It is the ONLY flour I use.
