Streusel Apple Pie

This recipe comes from our Douglas Church cookbook  submitted by Marlene Epp. It is a delicious treat, especially slightly warm served with Vanilla Ice Cream.

Line a 9 or 10" pie pan with you favorite pastry, plenty to choose from this site but this is my go to pastry recipe. 


  • 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

  1. Combine all ingredients and place into a pastry lined pie pan.


  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. cold butter

  1. Grate the cold butter into flour mixture to make coarse crumbs. 
  2. Sprinkle over fruit. (This time I added just a little bit of oats but it is not in the recipe.)
  3. Bake @ 375 for 50 minutes.
  4. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
