Recipe: Apple Streusel Pie
This dessert has all the homey goodness of a traditional apple pie with the sweet, cinnamon layer of streusel just under the crust.
Pastry for 2 crusts
6 Granny Smith apples, unpeeled, sliced thin
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup white sugar
2 rounded tsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 tbsp butter, room temp
pinch of salt
Heat oven to 400F.
Line a 9 inch pie plate, with 1/2 of the pasty.
In a bowl toss apple slices with lemon juice. Add white sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Spoon into the pie shell.
Combine the streusel ingredients in a small bowl, until crumbly. Spoon mixture over top of the apple layer.
Cover with remaining pastry. Seal and flute edges.
Mix together 1 egg white and 2 tbsp water. Brush over top of the crust layer.
Bake in oven for 10 minutes at 400F. Reduce to 375F and cook for another 40 minutes.
