For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • pinch of Kosher salt
  • 5 ounces of ice cold butter cut up
  • 2 ounces of ice cold water

For the Streusel:

  • 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
  • ½ cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 2 ounces of unsalted butter cut up

For the Filling:

  • 4 thinly shaven assorted apples
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 2 ounces of melted unsalted butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Crust: Add the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until the butter is the size of rice. In the same manner add all the ingredients to a medium size bowl and cut together using a pastry knife until the butter is the size of rice.
  • Knead the dough for 1 to 2 minutes and chill for 45 minutes.
  • Take out the dough from the refrigerator and roll it out until it is 1/8” thick. Mold to an 8” tart shell. Remove excess and set aside.
  • Streusel: In a medium size bowl cut together all ingredients until the butter is the size of rice and sprinkle it into the bottom of the pie crust tart shell. Chill.
  • Filling: Roll out each shaven apple and cut into 2’ feet sections. Brush with lemon juice and evenly sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon. Roll each apple up to make a rose and cut in half.
  • Place the roses right onto the chilled streusel pie crust until it is tightly packed.
  • Drizzle the top of the pie with melted butter and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until lightly browned on top and cooked throughout.
  • Cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar and serving.
