Ingredients

Apple Pie Filling:

Crumb Topping:

Instructions

  • Make a single pie crust and have it ready to go beforehand.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 375°.
  • Wash, core, peel, and thinly slice the apples*, adding them to a large mixing bowl.
  • Melt the butter, and mix it into the prepared apples.
  • Then add the sour cream, pure cane sugar, brown sugar, flour, spices, and lemon juice. Mix together well.
  • Take your pie crust out of the fridge, and pour your apple pie filling into the pie shell.
  • Now for the crumb topping... Mix together the flour, brown sugar, and pure cane sugar.
  • Then slice cold butter into the dry ingredients, and mix together with a pastry blender. It will form into a nice crumbly mixture.
  • Top off your pie with the crumble topping, making sure you crumble it all up around the edge, as well.
  • Place your pie plate on a baking sheet, and bake at 375° for about 1 hour, possibly a little longer depending on whether or not your crust is done.
  • Once the pie is done, take it out of the oven, and allow it to cool on a wire rack.
  • You can serve it, topped with a bit of whipped cream for a delicious treat. Better yet, serve it with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

Notes

**You can make this pie gluten-free by substituting a good gluten-free flour (<— this one's my favorite) for the all-purpose flour. And then also make the pie crust with gluten-free flour. Also, be sure to check labels on any of the above ingredients, just to be safe, especially the spices you use.
*An easy way to prep the apples is to use an apple peeler. It just makes the process so much quicker and easier.
HOW TO KNOW WHEN A DUTCH APPLE PIE IS DONE, YOU ASK?
The crust and crumb topping will have turned a nice golden brown. The apple pie filling will also be very bubbly, and the apples will soften; you can test them with a fork.
WHAT ARE THE BEST APPLES FOR PIE?
Personally, I love making pie with Jonathan apples or Jonagold apples. Jonagolds are a cross between Jonathans and Golden Delicious, and they are so sweet, tart, and crisp.
Some of the best apples for pie include:
  • Jonathan
  • Jonagold
  • Granny Smith
  • Golden Delicious
  • Pink Lady
  • Honeycrisp
  • Empire
  • Braeburn
  • Cortland
  • and Northern Spy
HOW TO STORE DEEP DISH APPLE CRUMB PIE
You can make this pie in advance, but I wouldn't recommend more than a day ahead of time, unless you're going to freeze the pie.
To store the pie, I recommend covering it well and placing it in the refrigerator. You can warm it up the next day at a low temperature in the oven, or in the microwave.
CAN YOU FREEZE APPLE CRUMBLE PIE?
Yes, you can freeze this deep dish apple crumb pie. Just make sure it’s covered well so it doesn’t get freezer burn. You may also want to make it in a pie dish you don’t plan to use again before you take the pie out of the freezer; or use a disposable aluminum pie plate.
When you're ready to eat it, be sure to allow plenty of time to thaw before serving.
