This is the BEST Dutch apple pie ever! I have never, ever tasted one that is as good as this. It will knock your socks off!
The apples on our tree are ripe, so here is the first in a series of apple recipes I will be posting. No one in my family is really fond of pie crust, so I always make a crumb topping for my apple pies. Then while searching online, I found a recipe that didn’t have a traditional pie crust at all, it just used the buttery crumbs on the bottom! I wanted to try it, but among other things it called for self rising flour, which I don’t have. So I tweaked the recipe and came up with this pie.
Seriously, doesn’t this just look amazing?
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 6-7 apples, peeled and sliced
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
For crust, mix all ingredients till crumbly. Take half of the crumbs and press them into the bottom and up the sides of a Deep Dish Pie Plate. Combine apples, sugar, and cinnamon and pour into crust. (You should have a mound in the middle-don’t worry. It will shrink as it bakes.) Spread the remaining crumbs over the top of the apples. Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes or till apples are tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
Roll yourself away from the table. Promise to eat healthier tomorrow.
