Today is the first day of my favorite season! I really love almost everything about Fall, especially the delicious fall flavors. So, to start off the season right, I thought I would share a recipe for the best apple pie you will ever put in your mouth!!
Apple Pie with Walnut Streusel is a little time consuming but so worth it! I found this recipe about five years ago on the Food Network website, courtesy of Gourmet Magazine. That link is no longer available. But I did find a recent post for the same recipe on Epicurious.com (ignore the accompanying ice cream recipe). I made it as written but omitted the walnuts. I LOVE nuts, but I seem to have several people in my life who do not eat them. Because I enjoy sharing my kitchen creations, I often leave out nuts. Considering that this is a food allergy blog, I think it is a safe assumption that many of you omit nuts in your cooking as well!

Notes: I used Fuji apples in the pie pictured. I have used all kinds of baking apples and sometimes a mixture of two or three. The recipe suggests using a deep dish pie plate. In the picture, I am using a regular glass pie plate. It does bubble over so I put a cookie sheet under it during the last 30 mintues of baking. I think I will invest in a deep dish pie plate soon . . .
