  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 deep dish frozen pie shell

  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter cut into ½ cubes


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Streusel Topping

  1. Mix dry ingredients (½ cup flour, ¼ cup chopped pecans, 2 tablespoons light brown sugar).
  2. Stir in the butter with fingertips until it is incorporated and there are
  3. still some small lumps of butter visible.
  4. Store streusel topping in the fridge.


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 4 tablespoons butter until it is amber in color, stirring often.
  2. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, place sliced Envy™ apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, vanilla and flour. Then, stir together with a spatula.
  4. Pour the brown butter over the apples, scraping the skillet with a rubber spatula to incorporate brown butter bits and mix together.


  1. Place the frozen pie shell on a baking sheet.
  2. Add a couple cups of the Envy™ apple mix into the shell, gently pressing the Envy slices so you have an even base of apples on the bottom.
  3. Add the rest of the Envy™ slices and gently press so they all fit nicely. It will be
  4. heaping, but they will cook down.
  5. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the apples.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 and then turn the oven down to 350 and continue baking for 35-45 min more until the topping is golden and the apples feel tender when pierced with a fork.


Streusel topping can be made a few days in advance and stored in the fridge until you’re ready to bake.
