Apple Pie with Crumb Topping

We went apple picking this weekend, which led to me making this Apple Pie with Crumb Topping.

Apple Pie with Crumb ToppingThis dutch apple pie will leave your house smelling AMAZING!! However, it can be a bit labor intensive if you don’t have this. Mostly because you have to remove the skin of the apples but besides that the recipe isn’t so complicated. An hour later, you have a streusel-topped apple pie, add a scope of ice cream, and you got yourself a delicious fall dessert trifecta. It’s warm, sweet, crunchy and inviting. In this recipe, we used red and green golden delicious apples but you can use whatever apple you see fit as long as it has a bit of crunch to it.

Dutch Apple Pie

For this pie, I used a premade pie crust, it was buttery, flaky and almost as good as homemade. With Thanksgiving coming you, this will make an excellent addition to your dinner menu, and the good news is, it’s pretty darn good. Add a scope of ice cream, drizzle with salted caramel sauce and you’ve got Apple Pie à la Mode.

    You have got me into these recipes now. I am eating healthier and I do this every year; at some point I begin making better choices. My plan is to create at least seven recipes using healthy ingredients I buy from the farmers market and then stick with those ingredients to make sure I stay on budget and that I incorporate good foods in my diet every week. I’ve created about four recipes so far and shared the first, a Romaine & Chicken Gizzard Salad and Soup on Abornewords recently. You should check it out. I listed the steps down to every detail. I really enjoyed sharing this one. I am more interested in being creative with food since my Son started working as a Prep Cook.

    This looks super yummy. I am all about apples because our apple tree has all sorts of apples for me to make recipes with. I love the idea of apple pie and crumble. The best of both worlds.
