Crumb Topped Caramel Apple Pie: Crazy Cooking Challenge

This easy Crumb Topped Caramel Apple Pie is a fantastic addition to your dessert table.
Crumb Topped Caramel Apple Pie from is brimming with fall deliciousness and is perfect for your holiday dinners.

Apple pies are my favorite fruit pie. Especially with a crumb topping, even as much as I love crust I would rather have a crumb topping than another layer of crust.

For this pie I decided to use half white sugar and half brown sugar in the filling to give it more of a caramel flavor. I love the way it tastes in cinnamon rolls so I figured it would be delicious here as well.

Apple pie is one of the ultimate comfort foods to me. The cinnamon, tender apples, crunchy crumb topping come together to make something sublime out of basic ingredients. If served with whipped cream or scoops of vanilla ice cream it becomes out of this world.

Even as much as I love pumpkin given a choice between pumpkin and apple pie I will choose apple pie any day. Especially this crumb topped caramel apple pie.

  • 1 9 inch unbaked pie crust
  • 7 apples , peeled, cored, and sliced. I used a mix of Golden Delicious and Gala
  • 4 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Toss the apples, sugars, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt together.
  3. Place in the pie crust.

For the crumb topping:

  1. Using a pastry blender, or a fork mix together the flour and sugar.
  2. Cut in the butter until a crumbly mixture is formed.
  3. Sprinkle over apples.
  4. Bake in preheated oven on a foil lined cookie sheet for 45-50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden. Cover with foil if topping and crust are browning too quickly.
