Not your typical apple pie! Cinnamon chips are scattered throughout the pie and in the streusel, giving the apples the cinnamon flavor they deserve.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I can't speak about the pie because I didn't make it but I did make the vanilla sauce and it was excellent!! Almost like a "loose" vanilla pudding. I served it over ice cream puffs but it could have many uses. It's easy to make and nice and thick. I kept it warm all evening in a jar in some warm water on the stove and it kept perfectly - never separated. I might use less sugar next time but it's a keeper!! Read More

This was a very very sweet apple pie. It was delicious but I will cut down on the amount of sugar and/or cinnamon chips next time. Read More

OMG! This pie is fantastic. I and my friends who are also on all recipes have made this twice for our friends at school. We are in college and this recipe is so easy it can be made right in the dorm kitchens. Each time we made it we brought it to parties and everyone was begging for a slice. I love this pie and even those who think all the cinnamon would be too strong it's not. It tastes absolutely delicious and 30 college students don't lie. Read More

Best Apple pie ever!!! I have made it several times. I have even thrown them in the freezer! They turn out wonderful. This pie has become my signature pie and I get requests for it all the time. It is not expensive to make either (an added bonas!) I do not make the vanilla sauce and serve it with home made ice cream insted. Read More

This pie was very tastey but mine was kind of thin. I think 3 Tbsp. butter on the top is too much. I would probablly try it again. Read More

The best recipe I have found for apple pie. It was a little too sweet. I suggest reducing the amount of sugar and cinnamon chips. The topping is outrageous. This was a great hit at Thanksgiving. Highly recommend this recipe! Cookie Snyder Miami FL Read More

I got so many raves for this recipe with a crust recipe if also found on this site. I made it for Thanksgiving and as a house-warming gift...both didn't survive the hour! The only change I made that was instead of the Hershey chips i used ginger snaps (crushed them up in a food processor) and on the second one I also added about a table spoon of maple syrup to the topping to make it stickier and it made it so much yummier! I will be making this a staple of our holidays! Read More
