Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel



one 9 inch pie shell
5 cups apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup butter


1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Place pie shell in pie pan and place in freezer.

2.  To make apple filling:  Place apples in large bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine two tablespoons flour, white sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.  Mix well, then add to the apples.  Toss until apples are evenly coated.

3.  Remove pie shell from freezer.  Place apple mixture in pie shell and dot with two tablespoons butter or margarine.  Lay a sheet of aluminum foil lightly on top of filling, but do not seal.

4.  Bake in preheated oven for ten minutes.

5.  While filling is baking, make streusel topping.  In a medium bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, brown sugar, oats and lemon peel.  Mix thoroughly then cut in half cup butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly.  Remove filling from oven and sprinkle streusel on top.

6.  Reduce heat to 375 F.  Bake an additional 30 to 35 minutes until streusel is browned and apples are tender.  Cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning.
