  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, 2 teaspoons white sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in 1/4 cup butter and lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend egg yolk and milk, add to flour mixture and stir until mixture forms a ball. Pat onto the bottom and about 1 inch up the sides of an 8x12 inch baking pan. Arrange apple wedges in rows lengthwise on top of dough. Cover with streusel.
  3. To make the streusel: In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and 1 1/2 tablespoon flour. Cut in butter and blend into coarse meal.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes. Cover with foil the last 25 minutes to prevent over browning.

An absolutely scrumptios apple pie. Really easy, too. I loved the way the streusel carmelized...turning it into a flaky, spicy, melt in your mouth delicacy!

I was not impressed with the recipe. The pie came out really liquidy, and after an hour, the crumble on the top had melted into the pie because it had so much liquid. Perhaps I will try it again, but toss a few tablespoons of flour or cornstarch with the apples, along with some cinnamon and sugar.

This was a great recipe for our family. I made a gluten free version (which is easy to do because of the amount of flour used) substituting 3/4c rice flour, 1/4c potato starch and 1/4c tapioca starch for the all-purpose flour in the crust and just rice flour in the topping. Excellent!

I made this for Thanksgiving - truly delicious! I doubled the recipe and used a standard 9x11 casserole dish...best with Granny Smith apples.

I thought it was a very nice way to do a pie...kind of a tart..but not really. I enjoyed it very much. I did however think it defeats the purpose of a "crumble" however when it just melts into the appples. Perhaps not covering it for the last 25 minutes would cause it to stay crummblt/crunchy on top.

I loved this pie, the filling was fantastic. I left the foil off altogether. The topping turned out crunchy but not over doing it. I did add Minute Tapioca 1/3 of a cup, but i also haved the recipe. I did find that there wasn't enough pastry in the recipe to cover the bottom of an 8" X 8" square cake pan, so i did half with this recipe, and half with the never never fail pie crust that I had left over. It worked well.

I also made this apple pie for Thanksgiving and it was delicious and very simple to make. Add a scoop of pecan ice cream on top and its perfect!!
