{Tradition- bucked}

A couple weeks ago I mentioned how my guys always want the same desserts for Thanksgiving. Sugar Cream Pudding for the Bean, Peach Pie for the husband.

Imagine my shock when the latter informs me that he wants Apple this year!


Sure, change your mind, make a liar out of me, after I’ve told the whole internet.


I’ll be using the same recipe I used last month when I make it however.

Streusel Topped Apple Pie
1 pie shell (9 inch)


5  cups apples - peeled, cored and sliced- thinner is better :)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons butter (stick)

Streusel Top:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup butter


Preheat to 425.

Line your baking rack with foil in case of bubble overage.

In a large bowl, toss the apples with the 3 TBS flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and white sugar. Add vanilla and toss again. 

When well coated, pour apples into pie shell.

Chop butter into small squares and place on top of apples.

Cover loosely with foil. 

Bake for 10 minutes at 425.

Then reduce to 375.

To make the streusel, cut the 3/4 C flour, other 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, and oats into the butter until crumbly.

If you wanna go a little crazy, you can chop up 1/4 cup pecans or walnuts to add crunch to your topping.
But you should know by now that I’m no fan of nuts

You can do as you please.

It’s your pie.

Remove pie from oven, add streusel topping, again covered loosely (not sealed) with foil, and return to oven for 30- 35 minutes.

Apples will be tender and streusel will be brown and lovely.


And pretty. Did I mention it will be pretty?


Cuz it will.

With a whisk and a dream… Tina.

  1. Made this tonight, and it was tasty! Only criticism is that I had to bake the pie longer than the stated time and also had to take off the aluminum foil.


I hope you enjoyed this post! It took both time and love. If you enjoyed it, please take a second to comment or share it. Or both. Yeah, both!! If you didn't like it, please feel free NOT to tell me and make me face High School-esque rejection! Kthx.
