Yesterday I was in the kitchen baking for our church holiday bazaar & posted this most delicious picture of my Dutch Apple Pie on my social media channels with questions on if I made it and if I did — how! I thought I had shared this recipe before, but turns out I shared how to make the Pie Crust and a family favorite Apple Dumplings. I make this quite often with apples from my inlaws tree & my mother in law actually gave me this recipe when I married my husband. To say it’s a family favorite would be an understatement!
Dutch Apple Pie Recipe
Either buy your crust – Pillsbury actually has a really delicious crust that rolls out nicely and is light and flaky! If you want to make your own, we love our homemade pie crust and it’s really easy to make.
Once you have your pie crust rolled out and in your pie baking pan.
- Slice and peal your apples – you’ll need about 5-6 cups (to be heaping pile in your pan and no big gaps next to the edges.)
- Sprinkle over the apples 1/2 cup white sugar & about 1 TBS cinnamon. Cut thin slices of margarine or butter and place over the apples (about six slices.)
Mix with a fork and until crumbly together in a separate bowl –
- 1/2 cup butter/margarine softened
- 1/2 cup Brown sugar packed
- 3/4 cup Flour
Once mixed spread all over the top of your apples. Bake for 50-60 minutes at 425 degrees!
It’s extremely easy and takes hardly any time at all. Take out and enjoy some of the most delicious, not overly sweet dutch apple pie.
