Cook Time40 mins
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
Servings: 8 -10 slices


  • ¬†Crumble:
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter melted


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 green apples peeled and diced (approx. 3 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, quick oats and brown sugar. Add in melted butter. Take 1 1/2 cups of topping mixture and set aside. With the remaining mixture, press into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Set aside.
  • Place apples in a large bowl; set aside.
  • In a medium size sauce pan, add the sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring the mixture to a boil until thick. (It will thicken up very quickly, so make sure you are standing by that stove. Don't step away.) Pour mixture in with the apples.
  • Stir in vanilla, cinnamon and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Pour filling into pie crust and top with remaining reserved topping mixture.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes (mine baked for 33 minutes). If your pie starts to brown to much on top, place some foil over it.
  • Once the pie is done baking, place it on the stove for 5 minutes, then serve with ice cream, or by itself.
  • Enjoy!
