Talk about simply delicious! Cookbook author Sherry Gore shared her recipe for Amish Vanilla Crumb Pie with the Test Kitchen and we just couldn't get enough.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (15-ounce) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll pie crust and place in 9-inch pie plate; flute edges.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar, flour, corn syrup, vanilla, and egg. Slowly stir in water and cook over medium heat, stirring until mixture boils. Let cool.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My husband loves vanilla, so this was a no-brainer. The pie is very easy to make and the flavor is nice and light. We found that it was too runny to enjoy warm the first time (it set up in the fridge), so this time, I added only 3/4 c. water. I also added a little extra molasses to both the filling and the crumbs, plus some vanilla extract to the crumbs. (I also added a splash of bourbon after the filling was done cooking this it still Amish?) I think we'll keep tweaking the details, but this is a great recipe.

Fabulous Pie! So easy to make and my taste testers were thrilled with it. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!

What about apples

This is not a fruit pie, it is a vanilla crumb pie. However, if you would like apple pie, simply type "apple pie" in the search field and then click "search." Thank you for your question!

What about them?

Did you read it wrong and thought it said "Apple Vanilla Crumb Pie"?
