For the Pie Filling:

  • 6 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Pie Crust:

  • 1 pre-made or homemade pie crust


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Place the pie crust in a pie dish and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice.

Toss until the apples are evenly coated.

Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.

In another bowl, mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, and salt.

Add the cold diced butter and using your fingers or a pastry cutter, work the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly.

Sprinkle the crumble topping over the apples in the pie crust, covering them completely.

Place the pie on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) and bake in the preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

Remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 15-20 minutes before slicing and serving.
