Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie

Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie |

This Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie is so easy to make and you’ll have everyone thinking you slaved in the kitchen all day making it.  I love all kinds of cooking, but quick and easy recipes are some of my favorites.

My oldest son and husband LOVE apple pie.  I had only made apple pie once and that was in the form of hand pies.  I decided I wanted to try something a little different this time so when I spotted this recipe in a cookbook I have, I knew it was perfect.  The only thing I might do different next time is cut up the apples in my pie filling to smaller pieces.  I felt like some of them were a bit too big.  That’s just a personal preference thing though.

Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 can (21 oz.) apple pie filling
  • 1 unbaked frozen pie crust
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, divided
  • 1½ to 2 cups crushed pecan shortbread cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Put pecan shortbread cookies in a food processor to crush. You can also put them in a large ziploc bag and crush them with a kitchen mallet. Set aside.
  3. Pour the pie filling into the pie crust.
  4. Sprinkled cinnamon over the pie filling. Dot with 1 tablespoon of butter.
  5. Melt the remaining butter and combine in a small bowl with the crushed cookies. Stir well until coarse crumbs form.
  6. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the filling. Cover the top of the pie loosely with foil.
  7. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°, remove the foil, and bake for 40-45 minutes. The crust should be golden brown and the filling should be bubbly.
  8. Cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours.
  9. Enjoy!
