So ever since I was a little girl I would always beg my dad to buy me those frozen apple pies that you see in the freezer section at the store…you know, the ones with the frozen apples in it! lol As I got older, I realized fresh apples just taste so much better! And sometimes, you just want the taste of freshly baked apple pie without spending so much time!! So this recipe is for the quick fix, semi-homemade apple pie makers/eaters like myself!!
My favorite part about a dutch apple pie is the crumble on top!
- 1 deep dish frozen pie crust
- 8 granny smith apples peeled and sliced
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1 cup of dark brown sugar
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Note: Preheat oven 350 degrees. Prep time: 10 minutes to peel the apples. Allow your frozen pie crust to thaw out for 10-15 minutes. Cook for 30 minute or until pie starts to bubble and is golden brown.
Directions: In a saucepan combine apples, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Cook for 5-7 minutes on low as the apples begin to caramelize and the juices from the apples begin to flow out.
Let the apples cool while you begin to make the crumble. In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients: 1/2 cup of brown sugar, flour, white sugar, and melted butter. Use a fork to stir and you will begin to see crumbles forming.
Once your crumble is ready, it is time to assemble the pie!
Get your apple mixture, pour into pie crust. Sprinkle crumble on top of apples.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and enjoy!!
