BAKING INSTRUCTIONS: (see separate components below).
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees farenheit. Assemble the pies and set into the middle rack. Bake for approximately 1 hour or so; until the crust and streusal are browned and the apples are soft. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, warm or cold ( I prefer warm).
FOR THE CRUST:.
Add all the dry ingredients together in a decent-sized bowl. Cut/add in the butter and mix with fingertips until crumbly. Knead slightly and add as much ice water as neccesary to moisten the dough (tbsp by tbsp).
Roll out on a floured surface until 1/2-1/4 inch thick and lay over a pie pan (fluting the edges if desired), brush the sides with honey. Chill until needed.
FOR THE FILLING:.
Cut the apples accordingly and add all ingredients ,except for the egg, in a large bowl. Mix well and let sit for 5-6 minutes. Spoon apples only into pie dough, spreading evenly and set aside. Whisk the egg with the remaining juices and spoon a 1/4 cup or so over the pies. Chill until needed.
FOR THE STREUSAL:.
Sift together all the dry ingredients and mix well. Cut in the butter and rub with fingertips until semi-clumpy and sandy.
Sprinkle over pies evenly.
