Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • Crumb Topping:
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional
  • .
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 C. sliced and peeled apples (Granny Smith are always good)
  • 1 T. lemon juice

  • 1 refrigerated prepared pie crust for 9" pie (or your own!)


Prepare this crumb topping and set aside: In small bowl combine 1/2 C. flour and 1/3 C. packed brown sugar. With pastry blender, cut in 1/3 C. margarine just until coarse crumbs form. If desired, add 1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts at the end.

Spoon apples into center of crust, leaving 2" edge. Sprinkle crumb topping over apples. Fold up edge of crust, pinching at 2" intervals. Bake in 400 degree oven 15 mins. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake 35 mins. longer or until apples are tender.
Free style apple pie makes 6 servings.

Great!, Member aliciacarol

I used Golden Delicious apples and made my own pie crust and it was great. I especially love the crumb topping! Exactly how a free form tart should be. I made the crust come up higher on top since that's the way my husband and son like it. :) thanks so much for the recipe it's my ""go-to"" from now on! Yay!! :)
