I don’t bake often, simply because I can’t resist eating everything right away (recovering sweets addict, hi!) But for Thanksgiving this year, I wanted to create something extra special for my family, and this Apple Crumble Pie with Oats turned out to be a huge hit. It’s simple to prepare, ideal for beginner bakers like myself, and yet it’s sure to impress everyone who gets to enjoy a slice!

Apple Picking Tradition

A recent autumn tradition I’ve embraced is apple picking. We visit a nearby farm and load up a huge bag with apples. While they have plenty of types to choose from, we always go for Honeycrisp – hands down, the best apples on earth! We manage to squeeze about 50 into our bag for only $35! Such a steal and also a cute little outing to enjoy. But what’s a girl to do with 50 apples!? Well, this recipe is an excellent way to put some of those freshly picked apples to good use.

Instructions

Prepare Pie Crust
  • Combine flour, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in cubed cold butter and combine. You can use a pasty cutter if you have one, or just a fork. After a while, I switch to using my hands and gently squish the butter, trying to break it up and mix it with the flour. Continue until a dough ball is formed, then flatten into a disk shape.
  • Tightly wrap with cling wrap. Leave dough to cool in fridge for at least 2 hours. You can prepare this up to 24 hours beforehand though if that’s convenient for you.
  • Once ready, remove dough from fridge. Lightly flour a surface and roll dough out into an 11 inch circle.
  • Place in 9 inch pie pan and crimp the edges with your fingers.
  • Leave crust in freezer while you prepare the pie filling.

Make Apple Filling
  • Peel and slice apples into ⅛-inch slices and discard the core.
  • Place apples in a large bowl, add sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon.
  • Toss until apples are coated and set aside.

Make Crumble Topping
  • In a separate bowl make the crumble topping. Whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar and cinnamon.
  • Melt butter until it is soft but not quite liquid.
  • Pour into bowl and mix butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is crumbly. I like to use my hands for this.

Prepare & Bake Pie
  • Remove pie crust from the freezer. Add the apples to the pie plate.
  • Add the crumble topping and gently press it down onto the apples so it stays.
  • Bake pie for 20 minutes at 400F.  Then keeping the pie in the oven decrease the temperature to 375 F for 35 more minutes. 
  • Keep an eye on the pie after the first 20 minutes – if it looks like the crumble topping is starting to brown too fast you can cover it in tinfoil to prevent burning.
