For The Pastry Crust


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 Sticks unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons ice water

For The Apple Filling


Ingredients:

  • 3 Golden Delicious apples (or other sweet apples)
  • 3 Granny Smith apples (or other tart apples)
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

For The Peanut Butter Crumb Topping


  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup flour
  • 1/4 Cup peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt

Directions:

To make the crust, combine the butter, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a food processor with a steel blade and pulse just until it resembles course crumbs. Slowly pour in the ice water and pulse just until combined and a dough ball forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Peel, core and slice the apples. Combine them in a bowl with the sugar, lemon juice, flour and salt.

After the dough has chilled, roll it out on a well-floured surface until it's about a 12" circle. Lay it into a deep dish pie or tart pan (mine is 9" x 2 1/2") and pour the apple mixture into the dish.

Make the crumb topping by combining the sugar, flour, peanut butter and dash of salt in a bowl. Using your fingers, crumble the mixture over the top of the apple filling. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 50 - 60 minutes or until the top and sides are a light golden brown.
