I don’t know about anyone else, but when I want pie, I want it now. Or at least sometime before The Daily Show, which is not what would happen if I came home from work one night and decided to make pie on a whim.
When we were still working through the apples we picked a few weeks ago, and I knew I didn’t want a pie. At least, not then.
But I thought, “When it gets colder and the apples are all gone and my husband is claiming we need to turn on the fireplace (aside: we live in Texas y’all, why do the houses all have fireplaces?), ooh yeah, I’ll want some pie. I’ll be glad I slapped these together and popped them into the freezer.”
And I was. We had a cold front jump into our laps this weekend along with rain, and yesterday was the perfect day to pull out one of these pies.
This is a crumb-style pie, because I don’t want to mess with top crusts.

- 1 deep-dish pie crust
- About 5 1/2 cups apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
For the topping
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup butter, room temperature
- In a big bowl, mix together all but topping ingredients and dump into pie crust. Try to even it out but don’t worry about being pretty, unless that’s your thing.
- In a smaller bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the top of the pie.
- Place unwrapped pie in freezer for 24 hours, then wrap in foil and place in a ziploc bag.
- To bake, preheat oven to 350. Unwrap pie and put it into the oven without thawing. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until edges are bubbly. Let cool completely before eating to let pie innards set.
