Oatmeal Streusel Topping for Pie

This topping recipe is perfect. Seriously. I've made a lot of different toppings and this one is really the best! I use my canned apple pie filling and that makes it a cinch to whip together a pie. And admittedly I pretty much always, ok more than pretty much, use store bought refrigerated crust. For some reason I hate the Pillsbury crust. It tastes very shortening-y and flavorless, so I find the store brand ones are much better. Someday I'll make one from scratch and then you can read that blog.

Anyways...this is the streusel that takes the cake is better than cake!

Delicious and easy Oatmeal Streusel for Apple Pie


3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
3/4 Cup rolled oats
1/2 Cup butter

In a medium bowl combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, and oats. Mix thoroughly, then cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle streusel on top of yummy filling already in the pie crust. Bake for approx 35 min at 375.
* If you are making apple pie with raw, uncooked apples, you'll need to pre-bake your pie for about 10 min before putting the streusel on and baking or you'll end up with mighty tough apples.

**you know how to make sure the bottom of your pie isn't doughy???? Bake it on the bottom oven rack. You're welcome :)
