Recipe by Moriah
I found this recipe when I was looking for an alternative to double crusted apple pie but a little fancier than the Dutch version. This actually calls for peaches instead of apples, but having none on hand and "baker's itch" I substituted apples,added the cinnamon,and it turned out so well that I have yet to try it with peaches. I like it best served a little warm.

I won't be rating this since I don't want to spoil any future reviews. I used granny smith apples since that's what the local shop had and for the pie shell, I made Chef Potts' Recipe #177343. Other than the apples, I followed the recipe as is but I had a problem in step 5. After 20 mins of baking, I peeked through the oven door and noticed the custard had formed a thick crust on top and had started to brown a bit too much. I then lowered the oven temp to 180C and took out the pie. With the crust formed on top, it was impossible to sprinkle the streusel topping, so I scraped off the top layer with a knife and then doubled the topping mixture and spread on top. I baked it for another 30 minutes till the streusel topping turned golden brown. I could have probably reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup instead of the full 1 cup, because I found it a bit too sweet but that didn't stop me from having another slice, the pie turned out delicious! Thank you, Moriah, for sharing!
