It’s official, I’ve started Christmas shopping. I have a whole plan of what to get and most will be online, so realistically I could be done any second – minus stockings of course. But for some reason I keep putting it off and thinking about it. Why? I don’t know. It’d be nice to just be done.

The Mr says absolutely no tree or Christmas movies until after Thanksgiving. But that only applies to when he’s home, right? ;)

Also, peppermint crunch Junior Mints are back. Yesss!!! Love. If you haven’t tried them… you must!

In other news… pie. Apple pie to be exact.

And even more specifically… apple-cinnamon slab pie with homemade cinnamon crust and crunchy oatmeal-brown sugar crumb topping. Yum!!!

I could eat this daily and not get sick of it.

Slab pies are a great way to serve pie to a crowd. This 9×13 pie will easily feed 12-15 … or less if you want really big slices, which would totally be okay too. No judging.

Don’t be scared of the homemade dough either. It’s easy! If you can press a button on a food processor OR knead flour, butter and water together – you can make this pie dough. No fuss.

Add this to your Fall baking plans and definitely your Thanksgiving dessert menu!

Apple Crumb Slab Pie

Easy pie for a crowd! A single crust slab pie, filled with tender cinnamon apples and topped off with a crisp granola and brown sugar crumb topping.


3C all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1C unsalted butter, cold
6-10 Tbsp ice water

1/2C unsalted butter, melted
1/2C light brown sugar
1/2C granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4C all purpose flour
1C old fashioned oats

8-10 medium apples
3/4C granulated sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/4C all purpose flour


In a food processor, combine 3 cups flour with salt and cinnamon. Transfer cold cubed butter to food processor. With food processor running, begin adding 1 Tbsp ice water at a time until dough pulls together, but is not sticky. Shape dough into a ball and transfer to a large plastic bag. Flatten dough down into a disc. Chill for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

On a silicone counter mat or a well floured surface, roll out dough to fit a 9x13 jelly roll pan with some overhang. Carefully transfer dough to pan, pressing into the corners. Fold dough over to create a thicker edge. Chill until ready to fill.

In a medium bowl, combine crumb topping ingredients until all ingredients are well incorporated. Transfer to a large baking sheet. Break up mixture into small pieces. Set aside.

Peel and chop apples. Toss with a splash of lemon juice if needed to prevent browning. In a large bowl, toss together apples with remaining filling ingredients. Transfer to prepared pie dough. Cover well with crumb topping.

Bake for 60 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is crisp.

Cool completely before slicing.

*Pie will serve roughly 12-15.

    Rachel, you make me sooo happy!! Finally someone who likes Christmas as much as I do. My husband seems to be like yours.. even if we’re not suppose to watch christmas movies until after Thanksgiving, he won’t know if I watch Christmas with the Kranks a time or two when he’s gone!

    • Rachel — November 6th, 2014 @ 7:21 am

      Right?! What they don’t know won’t hurt them ;)

    It’s a little too early for Christmas for me. But I’m getting there. I think this would be a great dessert for the Thanksgiving dessert table though. Thanks for sharing.

    Well, I know what we’re doing when I visit you in a couple weeks – Christmas shop tax-free! I request we go to the christmas tree shop too cause we don’t have those here :) Can I just sleep inside this slab pie? I mean, it looks so comforting ;)

    • Rachel — November 6th, 2014 @ 7:24 am

      Haha… it’s nothing like World Market but is good for some things ;)

    omg, this looks amazing. do you think it would work with 11×15 jelly roll pan. 9×13 just isn’t enough! LOL

    • Rachel — November 7th, 2014 @ 6:25 pm

      Haha! More apple pie is always a good thing. ;) It absolutely would work. Just keep in mind you might need to increase the quantities just a tad to accommodate the extra size. Enjoy!!
