Amish Apple

My husband lived in Amish country and LOVED their cooking.  Especially Amish Apple pie.  Amish Apple is a single crust apple pie with a strussel topping and a light custard to hold the apples together.  Amish Apple always gets rave reviews.  Just be sure to slice the apples extra thin!

Amish Apple Pie

Strussel Topping

1/3 cup Sugar

1/4 cup Brown sugar

10 tbsp Flour

1 tsp Cinnamon

¼ cup Butter, cold

½ cup Walnuts, coarsely chopped

1 dash Salt



4 lg Apples, (4 cups) either Jonathon or Gala

½ tsp Cinnamon

3 tbsp Flour

1 cup Heavy cream ( whipping)

1 unbaked 10" pie shell

1 cup Sugar

1 lg Egg

1 tsp Vanilla

In a food processor bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients for streusel together. Add the butter, and process 

until mixture is crumbly; it should still have a dry look, don't overprocess. Add nuts, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples (should be about 4 cups). Place apples in 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 total in the lower third of oven. After 20 minutes, sprinkle streusel over top. and 

continue baking about 40 minutes longer, or until the top puffs, and is golden brown.
