Apple Walnut Streusel Pie!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

The Blueberry Almond Streusel Pie was such a hit in my house I thought I would try again. I have come up with three new recipes, this is number two in the group! Apple pie is one that I have made in the past. I never did my own crust before, but always the filling. Most recipes call for nutmeg. That is not my favorite spice. I like a little clove or even allspice instead. I guess I am not quite ready to graduate to a 2 crust (homemade) pie yet.

Serves 8

Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • Crust for a 10” pie
  • 5 to 6 crisp tart apples, slice, peeled and cored
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. allspice
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. butter, cold and cut up into small cubes
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup butter cold and cut up into small cubes
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375*F

Apples

Place apple slices into a large bowl.

Sugar and Spice

Sprinkle the sugar, flour, cinnamon, allspice, salt and lemon juice over the apples. Stir to coat. Set aside for about ½ hour.Mix topping: Place brown sugar, flour cinnamon and vanilla extract in bowl. Stir together, add butter and cut into dry ingredients until crumbly. Add walnuts and stir.

Crust

Place crust into pie dish. (it might not be pretty… but it sure was flaky good!)

Fill

Stir the apple mixture and pour it into the crust, spread out evenly.

Butter

Dot with Butter.

Topped

Top the apples with the topping mixture. Cover the edges of the crust with foil so they don’t burn.  Place in oven and bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until crust is browned and topping is browned.  I did place a piece of foil over the top after about 30 minutes to my topping didn’t get too brown.

Apple Walnut Streusel Pie Baked

  1. My Dad always said, “Apple Pie without the cheese is like a hug without the squeeze”. He just passed away in September, thank for bringing this fond memory of him back to me through this post! 🙂
