A delicious Italian Pastry Recipe, filled with a simple Homemade Apricot Jam makes this Crumb Pie the perfect end to summer as a dessert or snack.

Apricot Jam Crumb Pie

A couple of weeks ago I made Apricot Jam, thanks to our Apricot tree that out did itself this year! We had apricots for everyone. These weren’t your regular little ones these things were the size of peaches!

I decided that my Apricot Jam would be the perfect end of Summer produce, and perfect as a filling for this Crumb Pie. And to tell the truth with the heat that we are experiencing in Italy right now, I really look forward to Apples and Cinnamon!

Putting it Together

What I like about crumb pies or cakes is there is no need for kneading the dough or rolling it out, just spread the crumbs, cover it with some homemade Jam and bake.

Doesn’t hurt to top it off with a good scoop of ice cream!

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup + 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg


  • 1/2 cup jam** (more or less to make thin layer,)

**you could use my Homemade Apricot Jam or any Jam of choice.


    • Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius). Grease and flour an 8" pie pan (20 centimeter). A spring form pan is my recommendation.
    • In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, add butter using a pastry blender or fork combine to form a crumbly mixture, add egg and continue to mix only until still crumbly.
    • Add approximately 2/3 of the crumbly mixture to the cake pan, lightly press down on the crumbs to firm it up slightly, spread the jam evenly on top and sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
    • Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Let cool. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired. Enjoy!

      Hi this looks wonderful!! Can you use other other jas,, like sour cherry, fig etc? Thanks for being on my very few cooking receiving email list!!

      1. Hi Debra, thanks so much and I love that I am one of your cooking emails 🙂 And yes you can use any jam you want. Let me know how it goes and what jam you use.

      1. Hi Kathi, I actually used a tart pan, the side of mine was just over an inch (3 cm). Hope that helps. It should be fine if it is a little shorter because it doesn’t have to rise.

      Oooh, I’m completely intrigued by the idea of a crumb pie like this! It looks absolutely delicious! (Although I’m inclined to think anything made with apricot is delicious 😉 ).
