Cracker Barrel Apple Streusel Pie Recipe

This cracker barrel apple streusel pie recipe is loaded with apples and topped with a crunchy peach streusel that you can drizzle with homemade caramel sauce. This is one of the most classic recipes in the whole country! This pie was first published in a magazine or cookbook back in the 1970s, but no one has any idea of who made it first.

The name comes from the fact that it is made in a barrel, and the peaches are placed on top. It’s a very simple pie recipe, and the best part is that it makes a lot of pie at once, so it’s perfect for a potluck or a family get-together.

Who doesn’t like caramel anyway?  This recipe is too good to eat up only one slice!

Cracker Barrel Apple Streusel Pie – Recipe 1

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 apples (apples are best if they are still on the tree because they keep their shape better)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg (beaten)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Directions:

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Peel and core the apples. Slice them into wedges and put them into a pie pan – a  9 inch would do.

Step 3

Mix the sugar, flour, spices, and butter in a bowl. Add this mixture to the apples and toss them together. Pour the apple mixture into the pie shell and cover with Streusel topping. Bake for at least 45 minutes or until the filling becomes bubbly.

Step 4

Streusel topping can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator. It makes a great topping for bread, cookies, and cakes!

Step 5: Crust

Mix flour, sugar, and salt together. Add shortening and use your fingers to work it into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and keep mixing until the dough forms.

Place it into your pie pan and bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool completely.
