Apple Streusel Pie
Prep: 45 minutes plus chilling and cooling • Bake: 1 hour • Serves: 8
dough for single-crust pie (11Sum_22 Pie Crust 101)
1/2 cup Schnucks all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed Schnucks light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold Schnucks unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup Schnucks granulated sugar
1/4 cup Schnucks all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 pounds Braeburn, Fuji or Granny Smith apples (about 8 medium)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1. Prepare Pie Crust: Prepare dough for single-crust pie as directed through step 3. Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Prepare Streusel: In medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and salt. With fingertips, work in butter until pea-sized crumbs form. Stir in walnuts. Freeze streusel 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, prepare Apple Filling: In large bowl, stir together granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon. Peel, core and cut apples into 1/4-inch-thick slices. You should have about 9-1/2 cups sliced apples. Add apples and lemon juice to granulated sugar mixture and toss to combine. Spread apple filling into prepared pie crust; sprinkle streusel evenly over filling.
4. Bake 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake 30 minutes longer or until filling bubbles and topping is golden brown. Loosely tent pie with aluminum foil during last 20 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning. Cool pie on wire rack 1 hour to serve warm, or cool completely.
