Apple Pan Pie


For this recipe I decided to make Apple Pie in a 9″ x 13″ dish. I used pie crust for the bottom and a crumb topping on top. The results….a thick delicious pie with a golden crumb topping! It tastes amazing and makes enough for any size family or function.

Ingredients for the filling.

Apples will turn brown right after you peel and slice them, but that’s OK, it doesn’t hurt a thing. Do not put anything on them to prevent the browning or it will change the taste.


Ingredients for crumb topping.


Using two pie crusts, roll and form them to fit into a 9” x 13” oven safe dish bringing the pie dough up the sides halfway.

Combine the apples with ingredients for the filling, mix well and pour into the baking dish on top of the pie crust. Press down on the apples so there are no gaps.


Combine crumb topping ingredients and use a pastry blender or your hands to mix until small balls form. Pour crumb topping evenly over the apples.


Sprinkle crumb topping with 1-2 Tbsp. of sugar.


Bake at 375 degrees for about one hour until golden brown and bubbly.

    • I used apples from our trees. They were here when we moved in 26 years ago so I’m not sure what kind they are. They were very tart. I always ask at the farm market what kind to buy now that we cut them down. There are so many new varities!
