Tipsy Apple Pie Recipe

I turned a cobbler recipe into a pie, adding brandy and crystallized ginger to the filling and a simple crumb topping. It looks complicated and tastes homemade, but it’s super easy! —Debra Keil, Owasso, Oklahoma
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
