What’s better than plain ‘ole apple pie? Coffee crumble apple pie! Made with fresh apples and coffee, this pie is everything you want in a delicious dessert!
Here in Wisconsin we were greeted with snow over the weekend. Time to bust out the winter boots, puffy snow coats and all things holidays. It’s as if the holidays don’t officially start for me until there is snow and miserable weather.
But let’s not forget seasonal fruit, shall we?
Every week when I used to open my Door to Door Organics order I would love receiving a sampling of seasonal organic produce, and in the fall apples are seasonal. And whenever I see apples I immediately think pie.
It’s a classic American dessert, and it’s perfect for the fall and winter.

Door to Door Organics is an organic delivery service, but they don’t just deliver product, they deliver everything else your heart could desire, like coffee! One brand of coffee they carry is Colectivo (a Milwaukee roaster), like this one. So as I was making some coffee I thought about upcoming Thanksgiving and pies and how great it would be to have some pie with my morning coffee or at least some coffee cake, I was in a sweets for breakfast kind of mood. Why not combine my love for coffee, pie and coffee cake? It’s a seriously delicious combination!
In this pie, apples cook to perfection and are topped with a crumble that has a hint of coffee in it and rests in a homemade pie crust. I make homemade pie crust in the food processor, it’s so easy that way but you could also use a store bought pie crust for this recipe. As the days go by, the coffee flavor in this pie intensifies.
Grab a cup of coffee and a slice of this pie and you’ll be set for one delicious dessert!
I seriously love Door to Door Organics (as you already know when I posted this super easy corn salad that can also be used as a pizza topping or this farm-to-table dinner or these peanut butter banana granola bars), groceries delivered is one of my favorite things ever.
