Cinnamon Crumble Apple Pie

The first apple in the basket
was bright and shy red.

The second apple in the basket
said, "What a cozy bed!"
The third apple in the basket
said, "Please move over there."
The fourth apple in the basket
said, "Now we are two pair."

The fifth apple in the basket
said, "Oh dear, me-oh-my!"
"This basket looks like pastry."
"I think we're apple pie!"

I'm sharing my favorite apple pie recipe again this year. I hope you'll try it. It's that great. For a printable copy, click here.
Cinnamon Crumble Apple Pie
Adapted from Bon App├ętit | October 2003

3-1/4 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, sliced 1/4 inch thick (I used tart Macs)
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
For filling:
Mix all ingredients in large bowl to coat apples. (I sometimes let this "marinate" overnight but you don't have to)

For topping:
Blend first 5 ingredients in processor. Add chilled butter cubes; using 
on/off turns, cut in until mixture resembles wet sand.

Put filling in crust, mounding in center. Pack topping over and around 
apples (I add chopped walnuts to this topping).  

Bake pie on baking sheet at 350 until topping is golden, about one hour. 
(cover top with foil if browning too quickly). Bake until apples in 
center are tender when pierced and filling is bubbling thickly at edges.
Thank you for stopping by! I am sharing this post on Tablescape Thursday and Foodie Friday.
