Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

half of 15-ounce package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
cooking spray
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 1/2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
5 cups sliced peeled granny smith apple (about 2 pounds)
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 TB all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 3/4 cups fat-free buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.


Roll dough into a 14-inch circle; fit into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray.

Fold edges under; flute.

Place pie plate in refrigerator until ready to use.


Lightly spoon 1/3 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife.

Combine 1/3 cup flour, brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Place the streusel in refrigerator.


Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat.

Add sliced apple, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; cook 10 minutes or until the apple is tender, stirring mixture occasionally.

Spoon the apple mixture into prepared crust.

Combine remaining 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, salt, and eggs, stirring with a whisk.

Stir in buttermilk and vanilla.

Pour over apple mixture.

Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees (do not remove pie from oven); sprinkle streusel over pie.

Bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 hour before serving.


The key to both a flaky pie crust and crisp streusel topping is to keep them as cold as possible before putting them into the oven.
