Pie Crust

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 tbsp butter cold and cubed
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp ice water 3 to 4 tbsp
  • 1 egg white lightly beaten

Apple Pie Filling

Streusel topping

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 6 tbsp cold butter cut into small piece


Pie Crust

  • Combine flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix.
  • Add the VERY cold butter and pulse until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of ICE water and pulse a few times to work the water in.
  • Add another tablespoon of water and pulse until the dough comes together as a ball.. I always add a third tablespoon of water and pulse until the dough forms a ball. If the dough appears dry, add an additional tablespoon of water and pulse to combine.
  • Roll the dough out into a circle about 1/8-inch thick and 12 inches in diameter.
  • Fold the dough into quarters and place into a springform pan.
  • Gently unfold the crust and press into the pan and up the sides about 2 inches.Crimp the edges with a fork if desired.
  • Place the pan in the freezer (or refrigerator) for 30 minutes while preparing the filling and topping.

Apple Pie Filling

  • Drain about 1/2 cup of liquid from the apple pie filling.
  • Whisk liquid and corn starch together in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Add the rest of the apple pie filling to the bowl and stir gently to combine.
  • Set aside.

Streusel topping

  • Add all of the streusel ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the largest pieces are the size of a pea or smaller. Set aside.


  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • Remove the crust from the freezer and lightly brush the bottom and sides of the crust with the beaten egg white. This will prevent the crust from getting soggy.
  • Gently pour in the apple pie filling.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pie from the oven and carefully spread the streusel layer over the top of the apple filling.
  • Reduce heat to 350F and bake the pie for an additional 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
  • Let pie cool completely before removing from the springform pan.
  • Serve with ice cream and caramel topping if desired.
