Hi! I am Petra Cox with Mom's Apple Pie Company in Occoquan, Virginia. We are a family bakery and we have been making great pies for over 25 years and today, I am going to show you how to make our Apple Crumb Pie which is our biggest seller year around. We call it the Butter Pecan Apple Crumb, but you can make your variation with oats in the topping if you like or you could make it as an apple crisp if you want. So I will give you a great recipe and there are a lot of options that you can make with this wonderful recipe. Let's get started.
So here we have all of our ingredients for our apple crumb pie or as we call it butter pecan apple crumb pie. We have for the crumb topping, one-third cup of pecans and one-quarter cup of cornmeal. If you want to skip those two ingredients you could just do a half-a-cup of oats, rolled oats if you like. We use a half of a cup of granulated white sugar and an eighth of a cup of dark-brown sugar. You can add a pinch of cinnamon if you like as well and we use just over a cup -- about a cup and an eighth of flour, six tablespoons of very cold or frozen butter, cut into tablespoons.
We use just a basic bottom crust. This is the crust we use for our pies and you could use a store bought crust if you want. It's important that it's frozen because then it doesn't get soggy as it cooks, and apple pie filling unless for a nine inch apple pie, we use our own filling made of York apples typically, and a cup of sugar and a tablespoon and a half of cornstarch and some cinnamon as well.
The only tool that we are really going to be using is a food processor here. So be careful with the blades. Most food processors have safety mechanisms that keep them from turning on unless certain parts of the processor are in place and we will be using a convection oven which gets really hot and sometimes, the doors can be hot. So, be careful with that hot oven as well.
So at Mom's Apple Pie Company we call this recipe the Butter Pecan Apple Crumb Pie and it is our biggest seller year around. People like it in the summer, in the fall and just all year around because it's a really nice, mellow apple pie with a crumbly, nutty topping. So let's get started.
