Amish Apple Pie
The best apple pie I have ever had. It is a very rich pie but really yummy.
- 1/3 cup Granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup Brown sugar
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tbls. All-purpose flour
- 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. grated nutmeg
- Speck of salt
- 1/2 cup Butter, cold
- 1/2 cup Coarsely chopped english walnuts
- 4 large Apples, Mcintosh or Granny smith (4 cups)
- 1 Unbaked 10 inch pie shell
- 1 cup Granulated sugar
- 3 tbls. All-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
- 1 Egg
- 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1. 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 overprocess. Add the nuts, then set aside.
2. Preheat the oven to 350*.
3. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples; there should be 4 cups. Place the apples in the pie shell.
5. In a small bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
6. Beat the egg in a medium bowl, and add the cream and vanilla.
7. Add the sugar mixture to the egg mixture and blend.
8. 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.
