Notes

  • Use whatever type of apples you have on hand.  Originally, it called for Minnesota apples, but any variety will work.
  • Peel apples first. Cut into thick slices.  If you cut too thin, the apples will disintegrate during baking changing the texture. 
  • Be sure to start with cold butter.
  • A pastry blender works best to cut cold butter into the streusel topping; however, two forks, two knives or clean hands work too.  
  • You can bake this in pretty much any baking dish you have on hand as long as the apples fit.  The original recipe used a pin tin.  I prefer to use a 2 quart Pyrex baking dish.
