"Not your typical apple pie - Hershey's Cinnamon Chips are scattered throughout, and in the streusel, giving the apples the cinnamon flavor they deserve."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)
  2. In a large bowl, Mix together 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and cinnamon. Stir in sliced apples until coated with sugar mixture. Stir in 1 cup cinnamon chips. Pour filling into pie crust, and dot with 3 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle with streusel topping.
  3. To make streusel topping: In a medium bowl, mix together 3/4 cup flour and 3/4 cup brown sugar. Cut in 6 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in remaining 2/3 cup cinnamon chips.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking for 35 to 40 minutes, or until filling is bubbling and streusel is golden brown. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour.
  5. While the pie is cooling, prepare the vanilla sauce. In the top of a double boiler over medium heat, whisk together eggs, half-and-half and 1/2 cup sugar. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Spoon sauce (warm or cooled) over slices of pie.

Best Apple pie ever!!! I have made it several times. I have even thrown them in the freezer! They turn out wonderful. This pie has become my signature pie and I get requests for it all the time....

The best recipe I have found for apple pie. It was a little too sweet. I suggest reducing the amount of sugar and cinnamon chips. The topping is outrageous. This was a great hit at Thanksgiving...

This pie was very tastey, but mine was kind of thin. I think 3 Tbsp. butter on the top is too much. I would probablly try it again.

Too sweet!

Like one of the earlier reviewers, I didn't made the pie but I made the vanilla sauce - and it was fantastic. It actually turns out with a custard taste. My husband and I loved it!
