This is a really great vintage recipe. It doesn't use the shortcuts or substitutions I normally associate with Depression-era recipes, and it's a nice straightforward apple pie recipe. I love the addition of walnuts, and some might want to add a handful of raisins to the filling. I'd definitely serve this with some vanilla ice cream.

I have heard this called apple streusel pie or Dutch apple pie, but never old-fashioned apple pie. I prefer my apple pie made with two crusts instead of a streusel topping. That and the amount of walnuts called for here seems rather excessive. I know it is apple nut pie, but it still seems to be a lot.

I am from that era and this is not a depression anything. I make an old fashioned apple pie and no nuts.

Why are questions never answered on this site????

Because there is no email notification if a question has been answered.

cook 3382597 I sure like nuts but not this many, sounds like a nut pie to me. LOL

If this is truly an Apple Nut Pie from the depression era I might add two cups of walnuts but certainly not five cups. That's not only expensive, but way too many nuts.

even 2 cups of any nut is way too much for any pie

How can this be a 1930's vintage recipe when there was no such thing as premade pie crust? Also, 5 cups of walnuts is waaay too many, more like 1/4 or 1/3 would be sufficient.

no way is it a 1930 pie I lived then. than and it was a rare treat for any pie and no way would we have used 5 cups .!!!

1/2 cup walnuts would be plenty for this pie.

I'll bet it was supposed to be .5 C or 1/2 C walnuts.

5 cups of walnuts is still "budget friendly"?

Am I reading this right 5cups of walnuts?
