Paula Deen's Crunch Top Apple Pie - YUM!

We have lots of apples at the house from last weekend's apple picking adventure. I decided to make an apple pie per Hubby's request. I tried Paula Deen's Crunch Top Apple Pie and it was DELICIOUS! Pretty easy to make...I used pre-made pie crust which I think helped. The time consuming part was peeling and chopping the apples.


Dough and Filling:

  • Dough for a double crust 9-inch pie (homemade, frozen, or refrigerated)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • 3 1/2 cups peeled, chopped cooking apples
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, chopped into small pieces

Crunch Topping:

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Dash salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Line a 9-inch pie pan with half of dough. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir in apples, applesauce, and lemon juice. Spoon apple mixture into pie pan and dot with butter. Cut remaining crust into strips; arrange in a lattice design over top of pie. For crunch topping, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Using a fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over top of crust. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F and continue to bake for about 45 minutes, or until crust and topping are golden brown.

I have been slacking. I have been wanting to make an apple pie for weeks. My grandmother gave me her crust recipe that I have been dying to try. Hopefully I get to it sometime this week. Yours looks tasty!

Yum! I've been meaning to make an Apple pie with a crumble top. That's the best of both worlds - crust + crumble!
