Apple Crumb Pie

I often brown the topping for this special-occasion pie under the broiler to give it extra eye appeal. Watch it carefully, though, because you don't want to burn Thanksgiving dessert! It's a fitting finale for any festive meal.

  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust pie
  • 6 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 6 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. In a large bowl, combine apples, butter, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spoon into crust.
  • For topping, in a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.
  • Bake until filling is bubbly and the apples are tender, 45-50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Editor's Note
Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
