Nothing is more American than an apple pie and this Old-Fashioned Apple Pie is one of the best. The homemade apple pie recipe uses a freshly made pie crust that is incredibly simple to make using a food processor. You can also substitute it with a store-bought crust. The filling is made with Granny Smith apples and simple pantry staples. What makes this apple pie recipe so unique is the divine crumb topping. The cinnamon topping adds a different and delicious texture to the top of the pie.
This pie is a must-make once apple season arrives and is great to serve during all the holidays. The rustic pie will be a favorite of all your friends and family. The apple pie is best served warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.

This was a fantastic apple pie. I loved the pecans in this dish.

This was the perfect fall pie. The crust was the right amount of crispiness and the apples had a great sweet and juicy flavor. Would definitely make this again!

I really liked how thinly the apples were sliced in this pie. The caramel and fall flavors were perfect. I liked that the pecans gave it some crunch!
