Warm Apple-Buttermilk Custard Pie
Warm, cinnamon apples combine with a creamy custard for a fun twist on apple pie. Tip: The key to both a flaky piecrust and crisp streusel topping is to keep them as cold as possible before putting them into the oven.
Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1/2    (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
  •                  Cooking spray
  • Streusel:

  • 1/2 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

  • 1 3/4 cups  fat-free buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325º.
  2. To prepare crust, roll dough into a 14-inch circle; fit into a 9-inch deep dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. Fold edges under; flute. Place pie plate in refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. To prepare streusel, lightly spoon 1/3 cup flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine 1/3 cup flour, brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Place streusel in refrigerator.
  4. To prepare the filling, heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add sliced apple, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; cook 10 minutes or until the apple is tender, stirring mixture occasionally. Spoon the apple mixture into prepared crust.
  5. Combine remaining 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, salt, and eggs, stirring with a whisk. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Pour over apple mixture. Bake at 325º for 30 minutes.
