Apple Pie and Mom …it’s an American thing!
This Apple Crumble pie is one of my favorite Apple Pie recipes.. I love making pies and ,of course, Bill loves eating them, and apple is his favorite. To change things up from the typical two crust apple pie, I try different recipes. This apple pie recipe for Apple Crumble Pie is from an older cookbook circa 1978 called “Better Homes and Gardens All Time Favorite Pies”. This is my “go to” cookbook for pie recipes as it contains enough pie recipes for a lifetime, 169 total. If you ever get a chance to grab one at a yard sale or on Ebay, it’s a good investment. One hint, be sure to use pie apples when baking an apple pie. Click this link for a helpful chart from that New England favorite, “The Old farmer’s Almanac”.Print

I was lucky my mom handed down the old B.H.& G. cook book to me. I use peaches with this recipe and it’s very popular with my family. Every August they start begging me to bake pies right at the beginning of peach season.

I love Apple Pies and this one looks like it is filled with tons of apples! I will definitely have to try out this recipe soon.
Sheryl T says
Apple pie smells so good when its cooking and states so great! This one is chockful of apples and you mound them right up.
My daughter’s boyfriend likes anything with a crumble top. It will make a good Sunday dessert.
Oh my, that looks yummy! I just gained five pounds looking at it, lol! My hubby’s favorite pie is apple pie. Thanks for the recipe!
Thanks so much for linking up to the “Making Your Home Sing Monday” linky party today! 🙂
Joy @ Yesterfood says
This looks SO good! I really liked the handy chart about which apples to use!

I found it to be a very helpful resource. There are so many kinds of apples and if you cook with an eating apple you will end up with a pile of mush….still tastes good but not visually appealing!
That looks fantastic, out of this world yummy!

Oh yum!!! We always called this a Dutch Apple Pie and I’ve never made one from scratch — I have saved your recipe for later. Thanks!
