Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 4 large apple – peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • Struesel Topping
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly butter an 8 inch square baking dish.
  2. Sift together 1 1/2 cups of flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in 1/2 cup of butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir together the egg with the cream and gently mix into the flour until a soft dough has formed. Press into prepared baking dish. Layer the apples into the dish overlapping, in neat rows. Prepare streusel by mixing the brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apples.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until apples have softened, and topping has browned, about 25 minutes.
