Recipe For Apple Pie

The apple is a symbol of health, of wisdom and of simplicity. These are just a few reasons people say "as American as Mom and apple pie."

Apple Crumb Pie is a tribute to American ingenuity. Firm, fresh, juicy apple slices bake in a sweet and creamy suspense-a corn syrup and cinnamon-sauce made thick with corn starch. They're topped with just the right amount of rich, buttery "crumblies" that add a sweet, tasty crunch.

When fresh apples are juiciest, Apple Crumb Pie can be a bit saucy, but most apple lovers will be delighted at the prospect of extra juices. It is delicious by itself without accompaniments or it can be served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a cup of piping hot coffee.

This delicious crunchy recipe has been tested in the kitchens of Karo Corn Syrup.

Apple Crumb Pie

Makes Eight Servings

Prep time: 20 minutes

Bake time: 60 minutes



1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon Argo Corn Starch

11/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 cup Karo Light or Dark corn syrup

6 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples (about 2 pounds)

1 unbaked deep-dish pie crust

Crumb Topping:

3/4 cup flour

2/3 cup sugar

6 tablespoons butter or margarine


Preheat oven to 375° F.

Combine sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, salt, butter and corn syrup in a large bowl. Add apples and stir to coat. Pour into pie crust. For crumb topping, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over pie. To avoid boil-overs in the oven, place pie plate on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, until crust is brown and apples are tender.

Recipe Note: If crust browns too quickly, cover edges with foil halfway through baking.
