Apple Pie Recipe

It is cold outside and what better way to cozy up then with a delicious slice of warm apple pie. Yum! True to my nature, I put my own spin on the traditional apple pie. I topped it with a buttery, sweet, cinnamonie streusel crumb topping. Heavenly!

Here are the recipes I combined to make one super delicious apple pie and boyfriend approved. And I should add, he’s the baker in our household.

I borrowed Blair Fowler’s “Grandma Fowler’s Apple Pie” recipe. Who’s Blair Fowler (JuicyStar07)? A YouTube Beauty Guru, I’ve been watching her and her sister Elle’s (All That Glitters21) videos for almost three years. A few months ago Blair shared her grandmother’s apple pie recipe and I recreated it.

Once again, the combination of the recipes was amazingly delicious, hope you give it a try.

Let’s get started.

  • 3/4 cup sugar

Streusel topping recipe from: Food.com

Streusel ingredients:

  • 1  cup flour

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

Pie Directions:

  1. Core, peel and slice the apples.
  2. In a large bowl gently mix in the lemon juice, then add sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix well so all slices are covered with the mixture.
  3. Place the apples into a strainer and placed over a large bowl. Let sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Pour the drained juice into a microwave safe container and add butter.
  5. Microwave for 6 minutes then mix the home-made caramel back into the apples.
  6. Line pie pan with pie crust and fill with apples.
  7. Top with pie streusel crumb topping (see recipe below)
  8. Wrap the edge of the pie with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
  9. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
  10. Let the pie cool before cutting into it and serving. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or alone.

Streusel Crumb Directions:

In a medium bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar with a fork. Then mix in the softened butter. Continue by stirring and blending until the mixture creates crumbs.
