Easy Apple Crumble Tart Recipe

Full disclosure…I am not a pie baker.

I mean, I guess I like pie every now and then..but pie isn’t my main squeeze.

I guess mostly because so many pies are filled with fruit. And well fruit…

So yeah, since I don’t love pie, I don’t typically make pie that often. I mean, unless it’s something like this…where the word “pie” is used very loosely.

Anyhow, turns out that Apple Pie is like this whole big deal in the world. So while I could argue that a peanut butter cup should definitely be our country’s dessert mascot, there are thousands of people who might disagree.

And that brings me to today. You guys apparently love apple pie, so I will give you my version of apple pie.

It’s super simple…and there’s crumb topping involved. So y’all know it’s gonna be tasty.

Super easy Apple Crumble Tart!

How to Make an Apple Crumble Tart

All you do is grab a tart pan. Or certainly use a pie pan if you want.

You’ll need one pie crust. I’m not going to get into how to make a pie crust on this day…I have been testing crusts for weeks for my book and I don’t want to give away the recipe until the book comes out. I know you’ll be waiting with bated breath. Ahem.

So anyhow, today use a store bought, or your Granny’s pie crust recipe…whatever is easiest for you.

Then slice up 5 Granny Smiths. Medium sized.

Dump those in the crust, top with some cinnamon and brown sugar and then a simple crumb topping, which is just a mixture of butter, flour and sugar…

Bake it up for about 45 minutes and voila…

Apple pie is delicious, but I think everyone knows that apple crisp is where it’s at. I love the fact that this is the best of both worlds! Apple season is definitely my favorite 😀
