Apple pies can seem like a daunting task, especially for beginners, but it doesn't have to be! Instead of worrying about making an award-winning top pie crust, take a more accessible approach. This incredibly delicious apple crisp pie is made with fresh apples and a crunchy oat and pecan streusel topping.

While the crunchy topping is amazing, we really love that this pie has no need to fuss with a top crust. You just roll out the bottom crust—whether you use a store-bought frozen or refrigerated crust—and then mix the topping and sprinkle it over the apples. Easy-peasy!


  • For the Filling:
  • 5 to 6 cups apples (thinly sliced; a combination of varieties)
  • 1 lemon (juiced)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 deep-dish pie shell (unbaked, 9-inch)
  • For the Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter (cut into small pieces)
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  •  1/4 cup chopped pecans

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Peel the apples; core them and cut into thin slices. Toss the sliced apples in a bowl with lemon juice to keep them from browning.

  3. Add the granulated sugar, the brown sugar, melted butter, flour, and spices. Stir until mixture is well blended.

  4. Prepare the pie pastry; fit into a pie plate and set aside.

  5. Heat the oven to 375 F.

  6. In a large bowl, combine the topping ingredients; blend with a pastry blender, two forks, or your fingers. Alternatively, pulse the ingredients a few times in a food processor.

  7. Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pie shell. Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over top of apples.

  8. Bake the pie in the preheated oven for about 45 to 60 minutes, until apples are tender and topping is browned.

  9. Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

  • Check after about 30 to 35 minutes to make sure the crust isn't getting too brown. Use a pie shield or homemade ring of foil to protect the crust edge if necessary.
