A wonderful apple pie just in time for fall!

The key to both a flaky piecrust and crisp streusel topping is to keep them as cold as possible before putting them into the oven.

I stumbled across this recipe several years ago when I was doing my favorite thing; searching for recipes! And, it has proved worthy!

Borrowed photo. Recipe tried and true.
