Green Chile Apple Pie
- 4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup green chiles
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- Pinch salt
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
For the pie crust: For the crust you will cut the butter into the flour and salt until you have a sand-like consistency with pea-size lumps of butter. Add the cheese and toss gently. Slowly add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you have a rough dough. Form the dough into a disc, wrap and chill.
Roll out the chilled dough and place in a 9-inch pie pan. Crimp the edges.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
For the filling: Combine the apples, chiles, white sugar, cornstarch, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, salt and lemon juice in a large bowl. Mix well and pour into the pie crust.
For the walnut streusel: Combine the flour, walnuts and sugar. Add the butter and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the pie filling.
Bake 10 minutes. Turn the oven down to 375 degrees F and bake 40 minutes longer. When juices are bubbling you know the pie is done.
Cool and enjoy!!!
