      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!!!
