Harvest apple pie, a flakey crust, piled with apples and topped with a butter crumble, a delicious dessert for any gathering, even for 1. 

  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 1 pie 1x




2 cups flour

1 tsp. salt

2/3 cups Crisco

68 tablespoons ice-cold water

2 teaspoons vinegar


7 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1/2 cup of flour

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

dash of nutmeg


1 cup of flour

6 tablespoons of butter

1/2 cup brown sugar



Preheat the oven to 350.

Mix together the flour and the salt. In a separate bowl mix together the vinegar and the ice water.  Using two knives or a pastry blender, cut the Crisco into the flour mixture then gradually add the water until the dough comes together. Roll out the dough and place into your 9 or 10 inch pie pan, flute the edges. I used a tart pan because I like the look.

In a bowl mix all of the filling ingredients and toss to coat the apples then place into the prepared crust.


Combine all of the ingredients and spread evenly on the pie. Bake at 350 for 70-80 minutes. Cool and then serve with ice cream or whipping cream.



Note: This recipe calls for using half of the dough for the crust and half to make decorative cutouts to attach to the crust, I did not do that part. The original recipe also calls for a combination of apples I only had granny smith.
