  • 2/3 c butter room temperature
  • 2 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 apple diced small. I use a Gala apple
  • 1 pie crust homemade or store boughtStreusel
  • 1/2 c butter cold and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 c light brown sugar
  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 c all purpose flour


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake crust 5 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butte and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs to butter mixture one at a time, beating until combined. Scrap down sides of bowl.
  • Add vanilla, mix until conbined.
  • With mixer turned to low, mix in flour mixture. Beat on low until just combined.
  • Fold in apples by hand. Batter will be thick, much like cookie dough.
  • Pour dough into prepared crust and spread evenly.
  • Mix streusel: Combine sugars with cinnamon, salt and flour. Cut in butter and mix until pea-sized. I find it easier to combine using my hands to mix.
  • Sprinkle streusel over pie and place in oven.
  • Bake 50 to 60 minutes until brown on top and center is set.
  • Good served warm or cold.
