Streusel Topping

  • Combine all the topping ingredients to form a crumbly mixture. You can either use a pastry cutter, a fork, your hands or a food processor to cut in the butter.*
    ¾ c flour, ¾ c brown sugar, ½ c white sugar, ¼ c quick oats, ¾ c butter, 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Top apples with streusel.

Tips and Tricks
  • *I used six ambrosia apples which made this pie really tall. Using four apples will taste just as good but won’t be as tall. You can also use any of your favorite baking apples for this recipe.
  • To cut in the butter I recommend using a pastry cutter like this  (affiliate) or if you have a food processor that is the easiest. 
  • I always like to put a rimmed baking sheet under the pie to catch any drippings.
