Serves: 8


  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1⁄2 cup butter, cubed and chilled
  • 6 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced 1⁄4 inch thick
  • 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1⁄4 cup cornstarch
  • 1⁄4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 pie shell (9 inches), unbaked


  • In a medium bowl, blend the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, 1⁄2 tsp. cinnamon, and 1⁄4 tsp. salt. Using your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Chill for 30 minutes before using.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, combine the apples, granulated sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, salt, remaining cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss to coat and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Pour the apple mixture into the pastry crust and top with the chilled streusel mixture. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling and the streusel topping and crust are golden brown.
