TWD - All American, All Delicious Apple Pie

Does anything say Fall quite like an apple pie?  I think not!  Dorie's version called for a double crust but as you can see, I went the streusel route.  The crust is my least favorite part of the pie so I just couldn't go there.  I will say, however, that I loved the trick of sprinkling the bottom crust with graham cracker crumbs to keep it from getting soggy.  Totally worked.

I used four different kinds of apples, per Dorie's suggestion, and also threw in two pears because I had a few extras that needed to be used.  I loved the combination.  I also substituted cornstarch for the tapioca called for because that's what I had on hand.

I didn't already have a tried and true family recipe for apple pie so I guess this one will have to do!  It's really delicious!

Check out Emily's site, Sandmuffin, for the recipe.


  1. Great looking pie! I bet the streusel was delicious! :)

  2. I like pie crust just fine, just not on top of my pie. Streusel is definitely the way to go for apple pie. =) That looks delicious!

  3. i dont' have a 'go to' recipe for apple pie - but I do prefer crumbs to coffeecake streusel/nuts. xoxo Tia @ Buttercreambarbie
