Oat Crumb Topping
Servings: 1-9 Inch Pie
Place the oats, flour, dark brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl, then gently mix to break up any lumps of sugar. Take care not to crush the oats.
Add the cold butter and gently rub the ingredients together with your fingertips to produce a mealy mixture.
Refrigerate while you prepare the apple filling.
Apple Pie Filling
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the pie shell on a sturdy baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil, then set aside.
Prepare the apples by peeling the skin, removing the seed and slicing 1/2-inch thick and place in a medium bowl
In another medium bowl, rub the brown sugar, cornstarch and spices with your fingertips until blended. Making sure there are no lumps of cornstarch. Add the apples and toss to coat.
Pour the spiced apples into the prepared pie shell, including any sugar and juices that have accumulated in the bowl.
Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the pie, leaving a 1/2-inch border uncovered. The topping will spread to cover the entire pie once baked.
Bake in the middle of oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the juices are bubbling and the crumb topping is lightly browned all over.
Let cool before cutting, although this is the hardest part, because who can resist warm apple pie!
