• Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 8 OR 1
  • Preparation Time:


  • Streusel:
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbls flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp grated nutmeg
  • Speck of salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cold
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • Filling:
  • 4 large apples, McIntosh or Granny Smith (4 cups)
  • 1 unbaked 10 inch pie shell
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbls flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup heavy (whipping) cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a food processor bowl, mix the first 6 streusel ingredients.
  • Add the butter and process until the mixture is crumbly; it should still
  • have a dry look to it -- don't over process.
  • Add the nuts then set aside. (I do this process by hand. I like my streusel in large pieces. I don't think a processor gives a great streusel. I recommend do it by hand and work the butter in)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Peel, core and thinly slice apples;
  • There should be 4 cups.
  • Place apples in the pie shell.
  • In a small bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
  • Beat the egg in a medium bowl, and add the cream and vanilla.
  • Add the sugar mixture to the egg mixture and blend.
  • Pour over the apples.
  • Bake for 1 hour in the
  • lower one-third of the oven.
  • After 20 minutes, sprinkle streusel over the top and continue baking
  • approximately 40 minutes longer, or until the top puffs and is golden brown.
  • Enjoy.


This is one of the very first pies I ever made. It is delicious and is like apple dumpling with custard sauce. I hope you love it like I do!
