Celebrate Fall with Our Delicious Apple Crumble Pie

As autumn paints the world in vibrant hues and cooler breezes waft through the air, it's the perfect time to savor the flavors of fall. And what better way to celebrate the season than with a delightful Apple Crumble Pie? This delectable dessert is not only a tribute to the fall harvest but also a wonderful addition to your Rosh Hashanah or Thanksgiving table.

Apples: A Symbol of Rosh Hashanah and a Fall Favorite

In Jewish tradition, apples dipped in honey signify hope for a sweet new year during Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. The apple is a symbol of the Garden of Eden and is significant during this time of reflection and renewal. Apples also take center stage during the fall season. Their availability is abundant, and their sweet, crisp taste makes them an ideal ingredient for various fall recipes. From pies to crisps, apples add a comforting and familiar flavor to fall-inspired dishes.

The Tradition of Apple Pie at Thanksgiving

Apple pie is a quintessential dessert during the Thanksgiving season. Its history dates back to the early days of American colonization when English settlers brought their pie-making traditions to the New World. The abundance of apples during the fall made it a natural choice for creating pies to celebrate the harvest. Over time, apple pie became deeply ingrained in American culture and a staple on the Thanksgiving dessert table.

Apple Crumble Pie Recipe Crumble Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup granulate sugar

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 1/2 cup walnuts

For the filling:

  • 3lbs granny smith apples

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • zest of 1 orange

  • juice of 1/2 orange

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Peel and slice the apples 1/8 inch thick. While peeling, keep the slices apples in a bowl of water or lemon/lime soda to keep them from browning.

  2. Prepare the crumble: In a large bowl, combine all crumble ingredients and mix with your hands until you get a crumbling texture to the size of whole walnuts. Once mixed, set in the freezer for 30 minutes.

  3. Mix the Filling: In another bowl, mix the filling ingredients making sure that all the apples are coated in the wet ingredients. Let this sit for until the crumble has frozen.

  4. Fill the Pie: Give the apples another mix to re-coat the apples then place the apple mixture into a 9 inch pie tin/glass, spreading it out evenly.

  5. Add the Crumble Topping: Top the apples with the crumble topping making sure every nook and cranny is covered.

  6. Bake: Place the pie in the middle of the center rack and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. *Some juice may drip out of the pan so I suggest placing a cookie sheet under the pan or on the rack below.

  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the pie to cool on a wire rack before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
