Oatmeal crumble topping, apples, and frozen berries combine for a flavorful pie perfect for any gathering.
Sometimes I have epic fails where I decide I want to make a dish thinking I have all of the ingredients I need. Then when I go to make it I realize that either I don’t have enough or I don’t have that ingredient at all. Whoops! Most of the time it means that I put my plans on the back burner but sometimes I try to see if I can make it work. Thankfully it works out sometimes.
So one day I made the mistake of telling my hubby that I was going to make an apple pie only to head over to the kitchen and realize that I only had just TWO green apples. Oh man. The look on his face when I said I didn’t have enough apples made me feel SOOOOOO guilty. So I was off to see if I could figure something out. Thankfully I always have a stash of frozen fruit in the fridge since we have smoothies multiple times a week. I pulled out a triple berry mix and went to work and the results were AWESOME! Marriage saved by frozen fruit (just kidding he still would have loved me)!
I used my trusty ol’ pie crust recipe. Still haven’t found a pie crust recipe that is easier or more forgiving. I also used the crumble from that recipe for this as well.
- 1 9-inch pie crust (homemade or store bought)
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 cups sliced green apples
- 3 cups frozen triple berry mix
- 1/2 c quick oats
- 1/2 c flour
- 1/2 c butter
- 1 c brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine beaten eggs, sour cream, and sugar in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and stir to combine.
Add apples and frozen berry mix to wet mixture and again stir to combine. Pour into unbaked pie shell.
In a separate bowl, put quick oats, flour, brown sugar, and salt. Cut chilled butter into small cubes and add to the mix. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the oatmeal mixture until you have roughly pea-sized chunks. Sprinkle crumble mix over apple berry filling.
Bake at 375 for 45-55 minutes. If edges and top begin to brown too quickly top with foil and continue baking. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing.
