Streusel Apple Pie






This recipe comes from my friend/cousin Marlene. Now that is one Mennonite girl that can cook!


Line a 9 or 10" pie pan with you favorite pastry.....plenty to choose from this site.
FILLING:
5 1/2 cups peeled and sliced apples,
I used what ever happens to be in the freezer that I have gotten from peoples trees like crab apples or others. When that is gone I use Granny Smith, or what ever happens to be on sale. You see this recipe is very flexible.
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 brown sugar
3 tbsp. flour
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t.cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
Combine all ingredients and place into a pastry lined pie pan.
TOPPING:
3/4 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. cold butter
Grate the cold butter into flour mixture to make coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over fruit. (This time I added just a little bit of oats but it is not in the recipe.)
Bake @ 375 for 50 minutes.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.........
