This incredibly delicious apple crisp pie is made with fresh apples and a crunchy oat and pecan streusel topping.

The crunchy topping is amazing, but what I really love about this pie is there's no need to fuss with a top crust. So you just roll out the bottom crust or use a store-bought frozen or refrigerated crust and then mix the topping and sprinkle it over the apples. Easy-peasy!

What You'll Need

  • 5 to 6 cups thinly sliced apples, a combination of varieties
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 deep-dish pie shell, unbaked, 9-inch
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

How to Make It

  1. Toss the sliced apples in a bowl with lemon juice to coat well. Add 1/2 cup sugar and the brown sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, flour, and spices. Stir until mixture is well blended.
  2. Prepare pie pastry; fit into a pie plate and set aside.
  3. Heat the oven to 375° F.
  4. In a food processor, combine topping ingredients; pulse until mixture is crumbly. You can also use a pastry blender or forks to cut this mixture together.
  5. Pour apple mixture into the prepared pie shell. Sprinkle topping mix evenly over top of apples.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 to 60 minutes, until apples are tender and topping is browned. Check after about 30 to 35 minutes to make sure the crust isn't getting too brown. Use a pie shield or ring of foil to protect the crust edge if necessary.
