Gooey Apple Pie

This week on The Pioneer Woman, she is devoting the week to making pies. Since I have recently been taught the secret to the perfect pie crust from Dusty's mom, I was so excited! It also makes me even more excited when I have all the ingredients but apples to make this delicious dessert.

This year at Thanksgiving, my family won't have to order me the Perkins Caramel Apple Pie, I'm gonna make it from scratch!

This is what you are going to need:
-1 unbaked Pie Crust
-3 Large Granny Smith Apples-thinly sliced
-1/2 cup Sugar
-1/2 cup Brown Sugar
-2 tsp Vanilla
-1 Tbsp Flour
-1 cup Heavy Cream
-1/8 tsp Cinnamon

For the Topping:
-3/4 cup Flour
-1/4 cup Pecans
-7 Tbsp Butter
-1/2 cup Brown Sugar
-Dash of Salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Then get your unbaked pie crust ready....I'm getting so much better at making these look pretty!

Then thinly slice your Granny Smith Apples....the thinner the apples the better!

In a medium sized bowl, combine the white and brown sugar...

Add the heavy cream...

Don't forget the Vanilla, Flour & Cinnamon!
Then mix it all together....
Please, do yourself a favor and lick the spoon!

Add the apples to the bowl....

And give them a good tossing around to coat.

Now it's time to make The Topping!

In a food processor, add all the ingredients.
Pulse the food processor until it forms a crumbly mixture.

To assemble the pie:
Place the apple mixture in the unbaked pie shell.

And top the apples with the topping crumbs.

To protect the crust from burning, loosely wrap aluminum foil around crust.

Bake the pie for 60-75 minutes on a baking sheet. During the last 10 minutes of baking, you can remove the aluminum foil to allow the crust to brown and bake. Remove the pie and allow to cool when it is bubbly and golden brown.

Serve warm with Whip Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream.


  1. I made this last apple pie last night and it was wonderful.

    I meant to buy a deep dish pie crust but got a regular one instead, so I divided the filling in half for each pie. My apples were really big so i think it turned out perfect.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Your pie crust in the last photo is pretty obviously underbaked on the base. Try a blind bake for 15 minutes before you add the apples?
