What is a Dutch Apple Pie?
Dutch Apple Pie Recipe is essentially a crumb topped apple pie. We use a traditional butter crust to line the pie plate, fill with apples like you would for classic Apple Pie, and top with a buttery crumb-pecan topping.
The Best Apples for Baking:
We highly recommend using Granny Smith Apples for most apple desserts. The contrast of the tangy apples with the sweetness of the filling is irresistible. While Granny Smith works best, you can substitute. Be sure to use a crisp/tart apple that is not overly ripe.
If you are using sweeter apples, I suggest squeezing some fresh lemon juice over your apple slices to balance the sweetness and cutting down on the sugar in the filling. You can Substitute with: Jonagold, Braeburn, Pink Lady, or Honey Crisp.
How To Slice Apples: You can peel, core, and slice the apples by hand with a knife, but the fastest and easiest way is to use an Apple Slicer. It does all of the prep in one step.
