1 9-inch pie


  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 5 cups Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced

  • 1 cup cinnamon chips (such as Hershey's®)

  • 3 tablespoons butter

Cinnamon Chip Streusel:

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • cup cinnamon chips

Vanilla Sauce:

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)

  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Stir in sliced apples until coated with sugar mixture. Stir in 1 cup cinnamon chips. Pour filling into prepared pie crust, and dot with 3 tablespoons butter.

  3. To make streusel topping: mix together 3/4 cup flour and 3/4 cup brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Cut in 6 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in remaining 2/3 cup cinnamon chips. Sprinkle streusel topping over apple filling.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking for until filling is bubbling and streusel is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes more. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour before serving.

  5. While the pie is cooling, prepare the vanilla sauce. In the top of a double boiler over medium heat, whisk together eggs, half-and-half and 1/2 cup sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Spoon sauce (warm or cooled) over slices of pie.
