Exquisite Apple Crumble Pie

Exquisite Apple Crumble Pie

This is hot and crumbly fresh out of the oven that it'll literally crumble on your plate. But that's what's good about it. A traditional American apple pie.

Ingredients: 1 pie plate

Pie Crust (2 crusts)
Cake flour
3 cups
Baking powder
1 teaspoon
1 cup
a small amount
Apple filling
1 kg
1 cup - 200 ml
1/2 teaspoon
a small amount
Corn starch
3 tablespoons
Crumble dough
Cake flour
3/4 cup
Almond flour
1/2 cup
3/4 cup
a small amount
Unsalted butter
120 g


1. Make the pie crust. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and salt well and add the shortening. Mix well with a fork.
2. Add 15 tablespoons of cold water and mix well with a fork. Add more water if necessary. Once the dough comes together, cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.
3. This dough makes 2 crusts. Once taken out of the fridge, divide into two, tightly wrap one half with plastic wrap and put in the freezer (for another occasion).
4. Roll out the other half with a rolling pin into a circle. Make it a little bigger than the pie plate you are going to use.
5. Place the rolled out dough on the pie plate and poke holes in it at random with a fork.
6. Make the filling. Peel the apples and cut into quarter-rounds. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
7. Make the crumble. Combine all the ingredients except the butter. Add the cold butter cut into 1 cm cubes and mix until the mixture becomes crumbly.
8. Add the filling to the pie plate from Step 5 and spread out the crumble on top evenly.
9. Bake for 50 minutes first in the preheated 200℃ oven and check to see if it has browned.
10. Don't worry if it crumbles. Eat while piping hot.

Story Behind this Recipe

I adapted the Dutch apple pie recipe I learned from my American father-in-law into this crumble apple pie.
