Apple Crumb Pie Recipe

Found this recipe in my Magnolia Bakery cookbook. It turned out perfectly. It wasn't too sweet and while some apple pies can be runny or liquidy, this one was not.

My version:

Apple Crumb Pie:


1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
3 tablespoons ice water

3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups peeled, cored, and sliced tart apples, such as Granny Smith

Crumb Topping:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, unpacked
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, cut into small pieces

Bake at 425 for 10 minutes then at 375 degrees for another 25 minutes.

I baked it as we ate dinner and chatted. It was still plenty warm inside well after I removed it from the oven. Which of course made it perfect with vanilla ice cream.

This recipe comes from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook. I've tried several recipes from this cookbook and have had success every time.
