David and I subscribed to the German Box monthly delivery for a couple of months to see what they would send. We received some different items, but mostly box mixes of stuff I used to love when in Germany.
One of the items they sent was the Kathi German Streusel. I had a can of blueberry pie filling, and wanted to give it a try.
I followed the instructions on the box. Although it says to use a spring form pan, I used a pie plate. But the mix came together really well.Sprayed the bottom with non-stick spray, and pressed in 3/4’s of the mixture to the bottom of the pie plate.I didn’t just want a blueberry pie. I wanted something a little more German. I used 1/2 cup of sour cream, an egg, and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar – mixed it together and poured in the bottom of the crust.Then I dropped the pie filling onto of the cream mixture.Again, followed the instructions to use the rest of the streusel mix to the top.Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle.Let cool, and enjoy. (Refrigerate after completely cool.)
It was so yummy. As like most German desserts, it wasn’t overly sweet. The sour cream mixture made it creamy, and cheesecake like but without the density. I will definitely make this again. I have Googled where to purchase the cake mix, and hope to get it again before Christmas.
