Classic Amish Apple Pie
Serves: 10

  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 5 tablespoon flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cold
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 4 large apples, McIntosh or Granny Smith (4 cups)
  • 1 unbaked 10 inch pie shell
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a food processor bowl, mix the streusel ingredients, 1/3 cup sugar, brown sugar, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

2. 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.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

4. Peel, core and thinly slice apples; there should be 4 cups. Place apples in the pie shell.

5. In a small bowl, mix the remaining sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Beat the egg in a medium bowl, and add the cream and vanilla.

6. Add the sugar mixture to the egg mixture and blend. Pour over the apples.

7. 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.
