    Amish Apple Pie

    Source of Recipe


    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
    pinch alt

    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cold
    1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

    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.

    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. Serves 10-12
