We made this apple pie in an eight-inch pan.  It’s a great apple crumb pie recipe and if a regular apple pie is too big for your household, this may be just right.

If you wish to make this in a standard nine-inch pie pan, increase the ingredients by about 1/3.  Measurements don’t have to be exact.

Crumb Top Apple Pie Recipe

A recipe or pie crust mix for a single crust pie

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
4 large apples, peeled and sliced, 1/4-inch thick

For the topping

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  1. Form the crust and line the pie pan.  Decorate the top edge as desired.
  2. Mix the sugar, first measure of flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl.  Toss the apple slices in the mixture to coat.  Pour the mixture into the pie crust.
  3. For the topping, cut the butter into the other ingredients using a pastry knife.  Spoon the toping over the pie.
  4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the top is browned and the pie is bubbly.
