Apple Crumble Pie

I've wanted to bake this Apple Crumble Pie for the past few months after I have bought a big bag of Granny Smith apples!  But the past few months I don't have the craving for Apple Pie so kept delaying and almost every alternate days my dad keep reminding me the apples going to get wrinkle soon.

So today is Apple Crumble Pie......... or else it is going to be Apple Smoothie instead...hee... hee.. 

I know some of you might not like to add in the cinnamon powder in apple pie, so it is okay to omit that out.

Recipe adapted from Rima of Bisous A Toi with slight changes


190g all purpose flour
40g sugar
¼ tsp salt
120g butter
2-4 tbsp ice water

5 apples, (I used Granny Smith), peeled and slice
25g butter
100g brown sugar
40g raisins
½ tsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp plain flour

150g all purpose flour
40g sugar
75g butter
¼ tsp salt


1.  To Make Crust
     Combine and mix well the flour, sugar and salt.  Rub in butter till crumbs are formed.
     Add in 1 tbsp ice water at a time until you reach the consistency you are happy with!
     Form dough into a ball, wrap in plastic and chill for at least one hour.

2.  To make the Filling
      Heat up frying pan and melt in the butter and sugar.  Add in apple slices and raisins.
      Stir fry the apples till tender and soft.  Add in the cinnamon powder and flour to
      thicken it.  Dish up and let cool.

3.  Remove dough from fridge and roll it to press into pie mould.  Trim off the edges and
      spoon in the apple filling.

4.  To Make Crumble
      Combine flour, sugar and salt.  Rub in butter until it resembles breadcrumbs.
      Sprinkle the crumble onto the apple filling.

5.  Bake the pie at preheated oven 180Celcius for about 25 – 30 minutes.

 Care for an apple?  ..... to keep the doctor away!
