Ready in 1 hour 20 minutes
An old family favorite apple pie with a crumb topping.
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a large bowl. (Omit lemon juice if using green apples. They are tart enough already.) Add apple slices and toss until coated. Place in pie shell. For topping cut 1/2 sup sugar and 1/2 cup flour into 1/2 butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over apples. Place pie in large brown paper bag. Fold ends over twice and fasten. (I use staples or paper clips.) Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for one hour.

lenacalgary 1m agoYummy. I used 2 times less cinnamon. When I made the crumbs following the recipe, instead of crumbs I got dough. I was making two pies so I decided to try to get it right the second time. I ended up using about half less butter and good crumbs. (The dough one was yummy too,just balls of dough instead of crumbs.)

Bonnieenders 1y agoMade this two days ago and it was a hit! My husband kept saying how professional it looked and tasted. Only downside was while cooking the house smelled like paper bag instead of apple pie! But I'd say the result was worth it!
bigmona311 1y agoThis recipe is amazing, i've made it before and will continue to make this pie so simple. I never cared for apple pie as an adult but i made for my daughter who only eats apple as opposed to any other desserts, so i tasted it with her and OMG i couldn't believe it. So today i'm making her another one and yes i will have some myself. This is a must try dessert! Enjoy
