EASY Apple Crisp Pie

EASY Apple Crisp Pie is a combination of our two favorite classics; Apple Pie and Apple Crisp, in one irresistible dessert!  Fresh apples, sugar, cinnamon, butter, and some flour along with premade pie crusts are the secret to making this apple crisp pie in minutes!

When apples are in season, they are reasonably priced at the grocery store making it favorable to create fresh apple desserts.  So I picked up a bunch of apples the other day.

Since I was having company over for a visit,  I wanted to make a dessert using the apples.

So when I went looking through our family’s recipes, I decided to try and combine two of our family’s favorite’s: apple pie and apple crisp!

And I made not one pie – but two apple crisp pies!

The outcome to making these two favorites into one?  Well, they turned out fantastic!  A delicious treat! The pies were not too sweet, and they had the perfect balance of apples and cinnamon, topped with a buttery crumble to make them irresistible.

The only thing missing from this apple crisp pie was a tub of vanilla ice cream next to it.  YUM!

And, need I tell you – I received rave reviews from family and friends, giving me the thumbs up!

 

How to Make this Easy Apple Crisp Pie: 

Simply chop or slice a few apples and toss them into a mixing bowl.  Then add sugar and cinnamon and mix to combine.  Then fill a premade pie crust, or fill two pie crusts.

Next, make the crumble mixture with 4 simple ingredients: cinnamon, butter,  brown sugar and flour.  Then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top of each pie evenly.  Then bake.

Easy peasy!

Homemade apple desserts are great!  With a few minutes to prep and minutes to bake, you’ll have these two easy apple crisp pies as desserts in no time!

HERE’S a TIP:  Keeping frozen premade pie crusts in the freezer is a smart thing to do.  They come in handy when you need them.

 

 

This recipe will make two 9-inch pies.  If you prefer to make one very thick pie, then this recipe will suffice.  Don’t forget to serve some vanilla ice cream with each slice! You’ll have everyone smiling!  What could be better?

Happy Fall Everyone!  Enjoy!
