This is a super-easy pie recipe with a sweet bottom crust, a juicy cinnamony apple filling, and crisp streusel on top, all made out of the same dough.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine apple slices and cinnamon in a saucepan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. If necessary, add a tiny bit of water so apples don't burn. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch springform pan with butter

  • Combine butter, sugar, vanilla sugar, and egg in a large bowl; beat using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add 2/3 of flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, to butter mixture and beat on low speed. Add remaining flour mixture and mix in by hand to make a crumbly dough.

  • Transfer 1/2 the dough into the prepared springform pan and press down to create a bottom crust. Add apple slices, leaving a small space around the edges. Crumble remaining dough evenly on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until streusel and crust are lightly browned, about 50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Carefully transfer to a serving plate or cooling rack.

very simple recipe, I made it just as directed. The dough did seem a little too sticky, when I make it again I will probably add a little more flour . Everyone loved it. Read More

I mixed Granny Smith and honey crisp apples did add add a couple tablespoons of brown sugar to apples while cooking but it turned out great and tasted wonderful. Made a unique presentation very pretty not a crumb was left. I m actually helping my 2 teenage grandsons at 11pm make another they really liked it Read More

I followed the directions but the crumb mixture was so moist it was more like a biscuit. I didn't want to add more flour to produce a thick heavy blob. Whatever I kept going. I simmered the apples for longer and added more cinnamon cloves and butter along with water for a juicer mix. I spread the gooey crust stuff on the bottom of a buttered 9x9 ( I hate spring forms) followed with the apples then dolloped the rest of the mix on top. It baked nicely and tasted really good....just nothing crumb about it. I served it warm with a bit of ice cream. I will do this again but use cold butter and cut it into the flour mix for a crumbly outcome. Thank you for sharing! Read More
