Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Pie is the one dessert I can’t stay away from in any circumstance.  I really do like apple, and prefer dutch.  This one was pretty good, though I felt the topping ended up too crunchy…I think tenting the pie in the last 10-15 minutes, or maybe a smidge more butter might have prevented that.  I would make it again and try to adjust.  I did a braided crust since this was our Thanksgiving pie (I’m a little late to the party posting this!), and it puffed up quite well and I thought really added a nice layer.  We used a mixture of Fuji and Jonagolds which we had picked ourselves for this, and they were great…I think you could use any apple, really.
