Apple Pie with Shortbread Crumble

This apple pie can be made vegan or not, as you can use butter or vegetable shortening in the crust. I like the butter version best, but the vegan version is also sure to be a hit! I mean...pie! 

Servings 8 slices

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. butter
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • pinch clove and nutmeg, each
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 10 apples
  • 1 pie crust recipe (link in recipe notes)

Instructions

  1. Mix first three ingredients together to form the shortbread crumble. The mixture should be slightly crumby. You can mix it together with a fork, a pie crust mixer, or your fingers (I've done all three). 

  2. Peel, core, and slice the apples, and mix with the remaining ingredients together (except for the dough, obvs). 

  3. Roll out the dough to line a pie plate. I like to crimp the edges, but you can also use the tines on a fork to make an impression on the edges. 

  4. Pour the seasoned apple mixture into the pie plate, mounding in the middle. 

  5. Sprinkle the shortbread crumble mixture on top. 

  6. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 60 minutes. The pie is done when the apples are forkably soft, and the crust is golden brown. Let cool slightly and enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

I always recommend this pie crust recipe -- you can replace the vodka with vinegar if you want, but...why? :)
