  • Oven


  • 1 prepared Refrigerated pie crust from a 15 oz package

For the Topping

  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 stick Salted butter cubed and cold

For the Apple Pie Filling

  • cup Brown Sugar firmly packed
  • cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 6 Granny Smith Apples peeled, cored, and sliced
  • ¼ cup Powdered Sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Place the baking rack at the lowest level of the oven. Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate, crimp or pleat crust edges). Using the tines of a fork, prick the bottom of the pie crust 4-6 times. Place on a baking sheet and bake 15 minutes. Remove and set to the side once done cooking.

For the Topping:

  • In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. place cubed cold butter into flour mixture. Using the tines of a fork (or a pastry cutter). Mix until pea-shape pieces of flour appear. Place in the refrigerator until ready to top pie.

For the Apple Pie Filling

  • Combine the sugar, brown sugar, flour, and apple pie spice in a separate large bowl. Press out lumps and mix well.
  • Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Toss to coat all apples with mixture.
  • Fill the apple mixture into the pie crust. Top evenly with the crumb mixture.
  • Bake for 50 minutes. Cool the pie on a wire rack. Dust with powder sugar before serving.


  • Topping - You will have about ⅓ cup of topping left from this recipe.
  • Apples - After you place all the apples in the pie crust you will notice a lot of juice in the bowl. This is water that was removed from the apples while sitting in the brown sugar mixture. Do not pour the extra sugar syrup on top of the pie. This will result in a soggy pie.
