Amish Apple Pie

This isn't the traditional apple pie, however, it is VERY good.
It is always gone in minutes at potlucks or where ever.

  1/3 cup granulated sugar
  1/4 cup brown sugar
  1/2 cup plus 2 tbls flour
  1 tsp ground cinnamon
  1 tsp grated nutmeg
  Speck of salt

  1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cold
  1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

  4 large apples, McIntosh or Granny Smith (4 cups)
  1 unbaked 10 inch pie shell
  1 cup granulated sugar
  3 tbls flour
  1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  1 egg
  1 cup heavy (whipping) cream
  1 tsp vanilla extract

In a food processor bowl, mix the first 6 streusel ingredients.  Add
the butter and process until the mixture is crumbly; it should still
have a dry look to it -- don't over process. Add the nuts then set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Peel, core and thinly slice apples;
there should be 4 cups. Place apples in the pie shell.

In a small bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Beat the egg in a
medium bowl, and add the cream and vanilla. Add the sugar mixture to
the egg mixture and blend. Pour over the apples. Bake for 1 hour in the
lower one-third of the oven.

After 20 minutes, sprinkle streusel over the top and continue baking
approximately 40 minutes longer, or until the top puffs and is golden brown.

Serves 10-12
