While I love cheese on my regular apple pie, nothing beats a dollop of good vanilla ice cream on a piece of homemade Dutch Apple pie. I’m not sure what earns this pie the Dutch moniker, but it’s one of our favorites.
Dutch Apple Pie
Press a pie crust into a 9 or 10 inch pie plate.
- 6 c. sliced, peeled apples
- 2 T. flour
- 1/2 c. sugar
Pour apples into pie crust.
In a separate bowl (I do this step in my kitchenaid mixer) cut together
- 1/4 c. cold butter
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 t. cinnamon
- 1/4 t. ginger
- 1/4 t. cloves
- 1/4 t. allspice
Mix together until crumbly. Don’t overmix this topping or you will end up with a wad of cookie dough. That’s not what you want! Spread the crumbly mixture over the top of the apples.
Cover the edges of the pie with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375°. Take the foil off of the edges and continue to bake for another 30 minutes.
Serve warm with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream. MMMMMMMmmmmmm. (Sound of lips smacking!)
PS You can use your apple pie kits in the freezer to make this pie in a hurry, but it will end up quite a bit sweeter than this recipe because the apples will have 1/2 c. additional sugar in them. Most people don’t mind that though!
