Homemade pie filling and an oatmeal crumb topping make this Apple Crisp Pie the perfect fall dessert. Add this easy apple pie recipe to your Thanksgiving day plans.
One of my baking pet peeve is that pie seems to get the shaft most of the year. Everyone breaks out their pie plates in the fall to make a Traditional Pumpkin Pie, then the plate just sits there the rest of the year.
I get it because I'm guilty of the same thing. Pie just isn't one of those desserts that I make very often other times of the year. That needs to change for sure!
It was so popular that we included it in our cookbook Cheesecake Love too.
My husband absolutely loves anything apple, so he gets excited when I start making apple desserts.
I decided to make another apple pie this year, but with a slight twist. Instead of adding a layer of cheesecake on the bottom, I added a double batch of oatmeal crumble to the top.
Warm apple pie filling, a crispy topping, and melty vanilla ice cream...you see where this is going, right? This pie has all the components of a quick apple crisp or a dutch apple pie.
We had good intentions of sharing this apple crumble pie with friends. But it got forgotten because we were chatting outside around the campfire. Whoopsy! Hosting fail right there.
I probably should have set the pie out with the rest of the food, instead of thinking I would do it later.
Do yourself a favor and make this easy apple pie for your Thanksgiving dessert table this year. It will not last long. I know because we devoured this one in no time at all!
How to make this Apple Crisp Pie:
- Make the homemade apple pie filling the night before. It needs time to chill and thicken before putting it in the pie crust.
- Let the store bought pie crust sit on the counter for about 15 minutes before trying to unroll it. I usually get impatient and try to do it too early. No biggie though. Just press the tears together, if needed. You can also make a homemade crust if you prefer that instead.
- Mix together the flour, sugar, oats, spices, and butter until it is crumbly.
- Don't scrimp on the oatmeal topping. You may think it is too much, but trust me and use all of it for the pie.
- Cover your crust with a pie shield, if you are worried your edges will get too dark while it is baking.
- Serve the apple pie warm with lots of ice cream and caramel topping. You can also serve it with Homemade Whipped Cream, if you prefer that instead.
