Apple Crisp Apple Pie 2

This pie….THIS PIE! It's so damn good. It's not your typical apple pie. It's a cross between an apple crisp and traditional apple pie. Warm cinnamony apples nestled in buttery oats and fall spices topped with a crunchy brown sugar and more oats. Oh so good.

I patiently wait for apple season to arrive so I can start baking. I love autumn! Like many people it's my most favorite season. I love it all, the weather, the food, the comfy clothes, socks, blankets. It's truly my season.

Apple and pumpkins are always a big part of these next few months. I can't wait to fill these pages with all the fall food I know you'll love as much as I do.

Apple Crisp Apple Pie 1

I don't like to bite into big thick pieces of apples in my pie. I like my apples cooked through. If you like a pie with more of a bite that I would reduce the time that you cook the apples in the skillet.

Anyway you like it, you must make this pie. It won't hurt if you top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream either!

Apple Crisp Apple Pie 3

Apple Crisp Apple Pie
adapted from a recipe at Dinner then Dessert
1 pie crust

Step 1 – In a skillet combine:
8 cups apples, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a combination of Granny Smith and MacIntosh)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
⅔ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons unsalted butter

Step 2 – In a bowl add:
¾ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup light brown sugar, loosely measured
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¾ cup all-­purpose flour
¾ cup rolled oats
1 large egg

Step 3 – For the crumble topping:
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 stick cold unsalted butter, diced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the pie crust in a pie pan and set aside.

For the filling:

Place all the ingredients in Step 1 in a large skillet and cook on medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until the apples are wilted and tender. Place the apples in a large bowl and let them cool for a bit. Once cooled a bit add in all the ingredients in Step 2. Mix well and place in the pie crust.

To Make the Crumble:
Combine the crumble topping ingredients until the butter is pea size, you can use your hands or a pastry cutter.Top the pie with the crumble filling. Bake for 50 minutes. Let cool for 15 then dig in!
