Homemade Apple Crumble Pie

Its a pie, its a family tradition and its an occasional family treat that reminds many of us of our childhood spent cooking in the kitchen with a parent or grandparent. This is my take on my families old recipe (instead of apple juice and honey which my granny use to use I use water and an extra tsp of sugar and find it doesn’t hurt the taste at all). Makes 8 servings on average, though we’ve been known to get 10 to 12 out of it.

Macintosh Apples, 407 grams (about 4 medium apples cored with peel)
Brown Sugar, 9 tsp unpacked
Granulated Sugar, 12 tsp
Gluten-Free Oatmeal, 86 grams
Water, 3 oz
Pie Shell, 1 shell ()
Cinnamon, ground, 2 tbsp
Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour – Red Mills, 6 tbsp ()

To make the topping, place the oatmeal, flour and brown sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. Add the water and stir until the mixture is moist and crumbly, then set aside.

To make the filling, place the sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl and stir in the rest of the water.

Get the apples and chop into thin slices, leave the skin do not peel the skin off, you louse the fiber which helps to make this dish a little healthier.

As you slice the apple up toss the pieces into the medium mixing bowl and once all have been added to the bowl work it with your hands to make sure you cover all the slices with the filling material (remember to wash your hands before doing this).

Once the apple slices have been well coated spread the filling (the apple mixture) around the crust (as evenly as possible – going for the circle method allows for you to build up the filling without leaving to many gaps).

Get the topping and sprinkle/pour over the top of the pie making sure to coat as evenly as possible and cover all exposed apples.

Set oven to 400F and once to temp place pie into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes reduce heat to 375F and back for another 15 minutes. At the 15 minute mark check the topping if it is browning place tinfoil over top and make for another 15 minutes if its still light brown cook for another 15 minutes keeping watch on the topping so it doesn’t burn. You are waiting for the filling to bubble a little that is when you know its fully backed.

Pull pie from oven and let cool for about 30 minutes .. serve warm or at room temp.
