Apple Crumble Pie

My new favorite apple pie recipe! You have to try it out! The apples are soft, and the crumble is so crunchy!


1 recipe Cinnamon Swirl Pie Crust
5-7 medium apples, peeled and cored, cut into thin slices
1/4 c. sugar
2 tps. cinnamon
1 stick margarine, softened
1 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbs. sugar
Optional* Caramelized Cinnamon Acorn Squash Seeds

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix the apples, 1/4 c. sugar and cinnamon together. Pour into the prepared cinnamon swirl crust, brushed with the egg. In another bowl, cut the margarine into the flour and brown sugar. Most use a pastry blender for this, I like to use my hands because the warmth of my fingers helps the mixture become buttery crumbles instead of a more dry and flour like consistency. Sprinkle the crumble on top of the apples, trying to cover the entire top of the pie. Sprinkle with the 1 1/2 Tbs. sugar. 

Bake for 55-60 minutes until the crumble is a golden brown and the apples are softened. Let the pie cool before slicing to give the juices from the apples a chance to become like a thick syrup. Top with some whipped cream and a few pieces of caramelized cinnamon acorn seeds!
