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.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 large apples - peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 7 ounces unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 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.
  2. 2 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch springform pan with butter
  3. 3 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.
  4. 4 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.
  5. 5 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.

  1. I make this about a dozen times between September & October with all the back yard apples. It's always a hit (with some minor adjustments)! Personal notes: (1) you can't use enough apples. Pack that spring form full! (2) Cooking the apples beforehand makes them a bit mushy. We prefer them intact: skip that step. - Read more ...
  2. Worked well, but i’ll prefer cutting the sugar by 1/3 fir the crust.
  3. Dough was very sticky and not crumbly—-added another 1/2 cup of flour but st not crumbly....took longer to bake than noted but everyone enjoyed it——either something is amiss with the ingredient quantities or directions
  4. 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.
  5. 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 - Read more ...
  6. 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 - Read more ...
