Preheat oven to 325, or 300 if using a glass pie plate. Have pie crust at room temperature as directed on package. Unfold crust onto 9" pie plate. Flute edges.

Melt butter in skillet. Add apples and sugar and cook for about 3 minutes until apples are tender. Set aside to cool.

In mixer bowl cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in flour, vanilla and buttermilk. Place apple mixture in prepared crust. Pour custard mixture over top. Bake in appropriately preheated oven for 30 minutes.

While pie is baking, prepare streusel topping. Mix together butter, sugar, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon until crumbly. After pie has baked for 30 minutes, sprinkle streusel topping over top of pie and return to oven for additional 30 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 1-2 hours.
