Blue Ribbon Apple Streusel Pie
I love apple pie. 🥧
This kind of apple pie was my father's favorite and he's not the only one who loves a streusel topped apple pie. Like many families, I come from a multi generation clan of homemade pie lovers and this style of apple pie was always a standout. Berry and peach pies, lemon meringue pies and pumpkin pies were also favorites. I could never get into the mince meat pies though. My grandmother who hunted for deer to make her famous mince meat pies around the holidays used venison neck meat, now that's authentic. I'm thinking back to those family reunions where pie was always front and center on the dining room table, where it was always time for homemade pie served with a cup of strong black coffee. I'm giving you this apple 🍏 pie recipe, so now you can bake your own pie, make the pot of coffee and invite your guests. Oh and don't be afraid to gild the lily and serve a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
8-10 baking apples, peeled, cored and cut in 1/2 pieces
