Notes

How to make Apple Crumble Pie in advance:
To make this apple crumble pie recipe in advance bake the pie according to the instructions and let it cool to room temperature. Cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for up to 4 days. On the day you want to serve it let the pie dish sit at room temperature for 30 minutes (to avoid the pie dish breaking from going directly to the oven) and then reheat the pie for 10 to 15 minutes in a 375°F oven before serving it. This will help re-crisp the crust and warm up the apple filling.
