Olde English Apple Pie

A tried  and true family recipe for a slightly different take on your average apple pie.  It is a crunchy and crumbly taste of fall that you will bake again and again!



4 heaping cups of chopped apples ( I like to use a mixture of honey crisp and granny smith)

Chopped apple topping:

1 cup sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

Zest of 1 lemon

juice of  1/2 lemon


1 stick of butter

1/2 cup of brown sugar

2 tsp of cinnamon

1 cup of flour

3 TB Kahlua

1 cup of toasted pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Butter baking dish of your choice  (I like a 11″ round but you may also use a rectangle baking dish if you want)

Peel and chop apples and put in the bottom of a medium bowl

Cover with cinnamon/sugar/lemon mixture

Place sugary apples in the bottom of your prepared baking dish

Cream butter for 1-2 minutes

Add sugar and cinnamon and mix thoroughly

Add the flour, Kahlua, and toasted pecans

“Plop” by spoonfuls on top of apples

Bake 1 hour until top is golden brown and bubbly

Remove from oven and serve warm or room temperature
