This is the recipe that my family has been using for apple pie for as long as I can remember. Or as my husband calls it “Easy as Pie Apple Pie”! We have it with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, and sometimes just because.

Easy apple pie is not a traditional pie. You don’t have a crust, but you pour the crust on the top and it bakes into the apples. I’ve been told this is almost more of a cobbler or streusel, but I’ve only ever known it as pie.

The recipe is simple to remember, too, since its one of almost everything. One cup of flour, one cup of sugar, one stick of butter, one egg… It was a long time before I ever wrote the recipe down because I just knew it. 

Most people save apple recipes for the fall, but I enjoy them year-round. I like to make apple crisp and sauteed apples in the summer since both can be topped with ice cream. Spiked apple cider is a great winter drink. And, of course, apple pie is great for the fall.

Apple Pie Step by Step


  • 5 apples (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick butter (melted)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 2 tbsp french vanilla coffee creamer
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350F. Peel and chop the apples into bite-sized chunks. You can leave the peels on if you’d like. I find that an apple wedger works really well then I cut it into pieces from there.

Place the apples in a pie pan and sprinkle with cinnamon.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the other ingredients.

It will form the consistency of a cake batter.

Pour the batter over the apples, trying to even it out as much as possible. The batter doesn’t have to cover everything, though.

Bake the pie for about 45-60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

  1. This sounds like it’s super easy to make – almost like a apple crumble but with more substance on top. YUM! Going to try this one. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  2. Amazing pie, i love apples, but I havent tried this though. Not sure why, but I think I need to try it. Thank you for sharing it!

  3. This totally reminds me a streusel but I can see pie. Also are you cutting/peeling by hand, if so amazing! I have a little apple peeler machine and it is the only reason I make apple anything.

  4. 5 stars
