Servings 8 Slices



  • 1 Refrigerated rolled pie crust or frozen pie shell


  • 8 Cups Apples (Combination of sweet and tart) cored, and sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 Cup All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon juice


  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted butter softened
  • 1 Cup All-purpose flour
  • 2/3 Cup Brown sugar packed
  • 1 Tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup Rolled Oats


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Roll out pie crust over pie pan. (If you purchased a frozen shell, skip this step and use according to directions on package.) Ease crust into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side and being careful not to stretch pastry to much.
  2. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1 inch from rim of pie plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate; flute with fingers or fork tongs as desired.
  3. In large bowl, toss filling ingredients. Mix until combined well.
  4. Pour into pie plate, mounding apples toward center.
  5. In medium bowl, use pastry blender or fingers to mix butter, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, oats, and vanilla until a crumb forms.
  6. Sprinkle evenly over top of pie. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon granulated sugar on top.
  7. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until pie crust and crumb topping are deep golden brown and filling begins to bubble. Transfer to cooling rack to cool.
