Apple Crumb Pie

I have been looking for some great recipes of Pie's to take with me to my Thanksgiving feasts, and this one caught my eye, I have always wanted to do an Apple Crumb Pie, maybe this one will be it. Thanks to Martha again for this recipe.

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for rolling
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Pie Crust
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 pounds Granny Smith apples (8 to 10)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make crumb topping: In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, butter, brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Work with fingers until large clumps form; freeze.
  2. On a lightly floured piece of wax paper or parchment paper, roll dough into a 14-inch circle. Carefully fit into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate, gently lowering dough into bottom and sides of pie plate without stretching (you will have a 2-inch overhang all around). Refrigerate.
  3. Place lemon juice in a large bowl. Peel, core, and slice apples 1/8 inch thick, transferring them to the bowl as you work. Add granulated sugar, raisins, cinnamon, remaining 1/4 cup flour, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to combine. Transfer apple mixture to pie crust, pressing in firmly. Fold dough overhang over filling, pleating it as you work your way around pie; press dough firmly against filling.
  4. Bake 45 minutes, then sprinkle apple filling with crumb topping. Continue to bake until golden and bubbling, 30 to 45 minutes more. Cool at least 6 hours before serving.
