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
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1 teaspoon crystallized ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 1. Unroll pastry into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edges. In a large bowl, combine the pie filling, brandy and ginger. Pour into crust.
  • 2. Place the brown sugar, flour, oats, butter, cinnamon and salt in a food processor. Cover and pulse until coarse crumbs form; sprinkle over pie. Cover edges of pastry loosely with foil.
  • 3. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; remove foil and bake for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.

"Made this yesterday. It was wonderful. I usually don't use pie filling but decided to give this a try. I am a little upset sometimes when people give a negative review and have obviously not made it."
