Homemade Baked Apple Pie with Crumbled Topping


There's nothing sweeter than apple pie, especially one covered with a buttery crumb topping. This sweet, classic dessert is excellent served warm or cold, and always stands out when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Place the oven rack to the lowest part of the oven.

Step 2

Lay the pie crust on the counter and roll it flat with a rolling pin. Gently place it into the pie pan.

Step 3

Place the thin layer of apple slices on the bottom of the pan.

Step 4

Combine the 1 cup of sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle a spoonful over the apples.

Step 5

Continue layering the apples and the sugar until both are completely used up. You should have a mound in the center of your pie pan.

Step 6

Combine the flour, sugar and cold butter in a bowl and mix together with your hands until it forms a crumbly consistency.

Step 7

Pour the crumbles on top of the pie and place the pie in the oven for 10 minutes.

Step 8

Decrease the oven's temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 45 minutes, or until the crust topping is golden brown.
