I just took this out of the oven and it looks and smells sooooooooo good. It's for a Rosh Hashana party tomorrow night - I can't wait to eat iiiittt. Before I serve it, I'm going to drizzle caramel and sprinkle dried cranberries on top, so I'll be sure to take some pictures then.

Here's the recipe from Moosewood Restaurant's "New Classics" cookbook...all vegetarian!

Fruit Filling:
8 cups peeled and sliced apples
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1 tablespoon unbleached white flour

10-inch pie crust, unbaked (I bought mine frozen)

Crunchy Streusel Topping: (I made double the amount of this - my pie crust was filled with a heaping pile of apples, and the amount of topping the recipe called for just wasn't enough)
1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 butter or margarine
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 toasted and coarsely chopped almonds (I didn't toast them - they toast when the pie is baking)

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees F*

In a large bowl, mix together the apples, lemon peel, lemon juice, sugar, cranberries, and flour. Spoon the mixture into the pie crust and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the flour and sugar for the topping. Work the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the oats and almonds and mix well. Spread the topping evenly over the apples.

Bake for 55 - 60 minutes (I did 50 minutes and it turned out perfectly), until the apples are tender and the crust is golden brown.

Eat  Grin

*If you find that the topping is beginning to burn before the pie is done baking, loosely lay a sheet of aluminum foil over the top of the pie, and it should be fine.*

This is my favorite Apple Pie recipe, too.  I used it last year.  Enjoy the pie.  Happy Rosh Hashannah.
