Hi johnyang..I love apple pie and have tried lots and lots of recipes. This one seems to be my favorite as well as the favorite of my family and friends. It was a winner in some contest that I had read about it which is how I came upon it. Try it, I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Ingredients Pie Crust: 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon sugar 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter flavored shortening, chilled 1/3 cup ice water 1 tablespoon vinegar 1 egg, beaten Filling: 6 cups apples (Jonathan or Granny Smith) 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup all-purposeflour 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla 4 tablespoons heavy cream 4 tablespoons butter Streusel Topping: 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon butter 2 toffee bars or 3 ounces chocolate covered peanut or pecan brittle, crushed Directions Pie Crust: Chill all ingredients, including the flour and vinegar. Combine the flour, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles cornmeal. In another bowl, mix water and vinegar with the beaten egg. Add the liquid mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, to the flour mixture, tossing with a fork to form a soft dough. Filling: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Peel and slice apples. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl and add apples. Toss to mix. Add vanilla and cream. Melt butter in heavy skillet. Add apple mixture and cook approximately 8 minutes, to soften apples. Turn into pie shell. Streusel Topping: Combine the flour and sugar. Mix in butter with fork until coarse crumbs. stir in the crushed toffee bars. Sprinkle over pie. Add top crust. Seal, flute edge and vent top. Brush with beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 45 minutes longer. I have made it with and without the streusel topping. Although delicious with it, the pie is great without it too. If you try this, please let me know what you think. Have fun!!

aPPLE PIES ARE VERY EASY TO MAKE. I cut up my apples, put butter, sugar, cinnamon & a little flour to thicken it, stir all that up, put in a pie crust & put a pie crust on top, put a few slits in top crust & bake. That's all there is to it.Welcome to mylot.
