Ingredients

Pie Crust:

1/3 cup chilled unsalted butter

1 cup flour

Pinch salt

1/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar

Filling:

4 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

1/2 cup green chiles

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Pinch salt

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Walnut Streusel:

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup melted butter

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Roll out the chilled dough and place in a 9-inch pie pan. Crimp the edges. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 
  4. 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. 
  5. For the walnut streusel: Combine the flour, walnuts and sugar. Add the butter and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the pie filling. 
  6. 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. 
  7. Cool and enjoy!!!
