If you’re anything like me, you love pie. It’s a staple dessert in our home. This recipe for French Apple Pie is awesome—a super easy one crust pie finished off with a yummy, crumbly top. So if you’ve got apples, French Apple Pie is what you should be putting in your belly.

Apple pie is always delicious, but a French Apple Pie with a crumbly, cinnamon sugar top is one of my favorites.

Wait. Isn’t apple pie with the crumbly top called Dutch Apple pie?

Maybe. Some people use Dutch and French interchangeably to describe this kind of pie. Even in my research, there wasn’t a real clarification to what the determining factor is that makes a modern apple pie French or Dutch.

All I know is, regardless of what you call it, it’s tasty.

So shall we get to making it?

  • Your French Apple Pie recipe is almost identical to mine! And, yes indeedy-doo, I could LIVE on it! Unfortunately, not right now though as both hubby and I are cutting the sugar stuff down to the bone because . . . well, over winter we managed to put too much fat on our bones! So I'll just sit here and salivate over your photos for a while. Mmmmm-mm!
