Deep Dish Apple Streusel Pie


This was the big winner at Thanksgiving.

It was the first to be devoured, even before the impromptu poker game ended. And, I’m not gonna lie, having every guest who ate it say, “Oh my GOD. This is so good” is really awesome.

When you are trying (fairly desperately) to wedge your way into the food world, there are certain expectations that people have when you make a dish.

The bar is pretty high.

And to be honest, I’m always nervous. Just like the feeling I get when a friend of mine says, “I’m going to make one of the recipes off your blog!”

I was so relieved when Thanksgiving turned out great. These rolls were so good they were second to be polished off, and this Beer Brined Turkey was the best I’ve ever made. Even though it was the same recipe I used last year, it was even better this year.

And the secret to the best potatoes ever is using an ungodly amount of butter. Like, several sticks. And some sour cream.

But this pie. THIS pie will now be the way I make apple pie. And making it in a spring form pan just makes it look incredibly impressive.


Deep Dish Apple Streusel Pie


    For The Crust:
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 stick of butter, cold, cut into cubes
  • 2 tbs shortening
  • 1/4 cup beer (or 2 tbs water and 2 tbs vodka)
  • For The Filling:
  • 7 large Fuji apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (about 9 cups)
  • 3 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 tbs flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbs honey
  • For The Topping:
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ stick chilled butter


  1. In a food processor, add 1 cup of flour (reserving the other ½ cup) salt, sugar and pulse to combine. Add the butter cubes and the shortening, process until combined. Add the remaining ½ cup of flour, process until well incorporated.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, add the beer and mix until combined. Dough will be very soft. Form into a wide flat disk, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.
  3. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface, transfer to a 9-inch spring form pan (This recipe makes way too much for a regular pie pan), press into shape. Remove the excess. Chill until ready to use.
  4. Preheat oven to 350
  5. In a large bowl combine all of the filling ingredients.
  6. Pour into the crust.
  7. In a food processor, add the topping ingredients, pulse until combined.
  8. Grab handfulls and press together into a ball. Grab pea sized pieces and spread over the top.
  9. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
