A Classic Dutch Apple Pie Recipe!

Fall is apple season, so I made a Dutch Apple Pie! It’s easy to make and will be ready in about 1-1/2 hours. Here’s how to make it.



Pastry for a single-crust pie

Pie dough for crust


  • 4-5 large pie apples (sliced thin)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup flour

Crumb Topping

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter

Start with making crust for a one-crust pie and form your pie shell. (For tips and a recipe for no-fail pie crust, check out

  1. Mix together the apple slices, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour (for thickening) and mix them all together.
  2. Let it sit for about ½ hour and let the thickener develop. (Hint #1: 1-2 tsp of lemon juice will keep your apples from browning.) (Hint #2: You can get creative and add golden raisins and nuts too if you wish.)
  3. Mound the apple filling in the unbaked pie shell.

Make the crumb topping

  1. Combine the flour, brown sugar and butter and pulse in a food processor till crumbly.
  2. Liberally heap it on the apple filling.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees until crust is brown and filling bubbles, about 1 hour.
  4. Serve warm with ice cream for a real treat!
