for the pie:

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust at room temperature
  • 4 cups 4-6 apples apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 pears peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

for the crumble:

  • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter chilled, cut into small pieces
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll pie dough over a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.
  • 2. Dock the dough (prick with a fork) and blind bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the apples and pears with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Transfer the apple mixture into a colander placed over a large bowl.
  • 4. In a medium bowl, prepare the crumble by adding the oats, brown sugar, flour and salt. Use a fork or pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the butter is blended in and the mixture is clumpy.
  • 5. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the apple mixture into the pre-baked pie crust, draining excess liquid.
  • 6. Pile the crumble on top of the apples, pressing down into them gently to create a mound of the crumble topping.
  • 7. Line a baking sheet with foil and place on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any drips if the pie cooks over. Reduce the temperature to 375 degrees.
  • 8. Place the pie on the top shelf of the oven and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check on the pie after 45 minutes and tent the top with foil if it is browning too quickly.
  • 9. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before slicing and serving.
