Cinnamon Crumb Apple Pie: savory cinnamon and sugar covered apples in a crisp crust.

Apple pies are my absolute favorite fruit filled pie! There is something so delicious about eating a warm apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream. It must have something to do with childhood memories of eating them, but I can never turn it down!

This apple pie is the perfect combination of crisp apples, cinnamon and crunchy crust. I love that it doesn’t require a top layer of crust, but I can add cut outs or that layer if desired. It is so simple to make and everyone loves it!

  10. Recipe: Keeping Up Cookbook

This recipe creates one heaping 9″ apple pie, but you can totally use the same recipe and make two less-full 8″ pies if you’d like. Quickly you’ll learn that this is the best recipe for Thanksgiving because it is so simple. Trust me, after you have a slice you won’t be able to stop. It’s a family favorite around here.
