Flatiron Foodies: Hill Country’s Apple Streusel Pie

As summer gives way to Autumn, Hill Country Barbecue Market sets sights on everyone's favorite fall produce and flavors, which means: It’s Apple Pie time! Hill Country's Chef Ash Fulk's favorite pie is their Apple Streusel. It’s a classic recipe that will make a grown-up long for a childhood apple picking adventure and always hits the spot. Enjoy! 

Located at 30 West 26th Street, Hill Country was founded in 2007 with the vision of bringing the authentic cuisine, original culture, and famed music of the Central Texas barbecue belt to New York City.


Apple Streusel Pie Recipe

This recipe is good for one 11” pie crust. 

FOR THE FILLING:

Ingredients:

  • 6oz butter
  • 3 oz cornstarch
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (I love cinnamon so I often do 2 tsp)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 lb apple peeled (Granny Smith is our favorite! Macintosh will work great too.)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice

Method:

  1. Melt butter.
  2. Mix cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Toss the mixture with apples.
  3. Add spiced apples to the butter. Keep on medium heat until the apples release some of the liquid. Stir often. Add lemon juice.
  4. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Set aside to cool.


FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING:

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼  lb butter (unsalted)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg

Method:

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients leaving out the butter.
  2. Cut butter into small cubes. Add butter to the flour mixture.
  3. Pinch the butter between your fingers until mostly incorporated. Some lumps are good!

 

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER & ENJOY:
  1. Preheat Over to 350 degrees.
  2. Blind bake your favorite pie crust. 
  3. Once cooled pour in the apple filling. 
  4. Cover the filling with the crumble topping.
  5. Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes, or until golden brown and delicious!
