Description

A rich, decadent apple pie with a crumbly crunchy filling.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Unbaked Pie Crust
  • Filling
  • 3 whole Large (4 Or 5 Small) Granny Smith Apples, Peeled, Cored, And Sliced Thin
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ⅛ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • Topping
  • 7 Tablespoons Butter
  • ¾ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cups Pecans (more To Taste)
  • Dash Of Salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Roll out pie dough and place it in a pie pan. Decorate the edges as desired.

Add apple slices to a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together cream, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour over apples. Pour apples into pie shell.

In the bowl of a food processor (or you can mix by hand) combine butter, flour, sugar, pecans (chop if you’re not using a food processor), and salt. Mix until everything comes together in clumps. Pour topping over apples.

Attach foil to the edges and lay a piece of flat foil loosely over the top of the pie. Place pie pan on top of a rimmed cookie sheet and bake for one hour. At the end, remove foil and allow to finish baking and browning. Can bake for up to 15 or 20 minutes more if necessary.

Remove from oven when pie is bubbly and golden brown.

Serve warm with hard sauce, whipped cream, or ice cream.

Amazing! The tart of the granny smith apples with the sweet of the crumb topping and the tang of the hard sauce makes this irresistible!
