Dutch Apple Pie

I love making pies but the crust from scratch will NOT happen in my house! I mean, the Pillsbury crust is seriously so good and tastes homemade so why go through the extra steps? Plus, I love this recipe because I am a fan of the crisp topping rather than more pie crust....of course I always double the topping for 1 pie 😊

'Tis the season for Apple Pie! The next time you need to bring something for a party, bring this! People will love it!


6 apples, peeled, cored and sliced

3 Tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup sugar

2 heaping Tbsp flour

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1 unbaked pie crust ( I love Pillsbury)


1.) Peel, core and slice apples thinly. Place into a large bowl, then toss the apple slices with the lemon juice.

2.) In a small bowl, mix the sugar, flour and cinnamon and pour it over the apple slices. Stir and mix until well coated. Pour into pie shell.

Crumb Topping Ingredients: ( I double this)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup oatmeal

2 tsp cinnamon

/2 cup softened butter, not melted


1.) In a medium bowl, mix the first 4 ingredients. Cut the butter into it (I use my fingers to mash it all together creating a crumble like topping.)

2.) Sprinkle over the apples, covering them all. Seal edges gently by pressing the topping into the pie.

3.) Cover the edges of the crust with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Serve with ice cream!
