In a food processor bowl, mix the first 6 ingredients for streusel together. Add the butter, and process until mixture is crumbly; it should still have a dry look, don’t over process. Add nuts, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples (should be about 4 cups). Place apples in pie shell. In a small bowl, mix the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Beat the egg in a medium bowl, and add the cream and vanilla. Add the sugar mixture to the egg mixture, and blend. Pour over the apples.
