Bavarian Inn Apple Kuchen
By Dorothy Zehnder 


1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 3-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped apples
1 1/2 cups peeled and thinly sliced apples
2 tablespoons apple juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup rolled oats, old fashioned
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine 

Crust: In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Gradually beat in 1 1/4 cups flour. Press crumbly mixture onto bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 5 minutes. Cool. Beat cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until combined. Beat in egg. Pour over crust. Mix apples, juice, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Spoon over cheese.  Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes.

Prepare streusel topping and set aside to dry slightly.  Combine oats, flour and brown sugar.  Cut in butter or margarine to resemble coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle streusel topping over pie.  Bake for 15 to 25 minutes more until golden brown. 

Makes 1 pie.

Note from Dorothy: This is just one of several pies you can purchase at Bavarian Inn Restaurant’s Castle Shops. Did you know that in 2013 we sold 6000 pies total? Apple Kuchen is our most popular, but our Pumpkin (made with Blue Hubbard squash) is a close second.
