Maggie’s Dutch Apple Pie

My Thanksgiving Dutch Apple & Chocolate Cream Pie

I don’t know about you, but Apple Pie probably is my favorite dessert. There’s nothing quite like a piece of ooey gooey warm apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Do you like a dutch apple pie with the crumble topping? Or do you prefer the classic apple with a beautiful lattice crust? I love the crumble and I have been trying to perfect a dutch apple pie recipe for a few years now. Finally this year for Thanksgiving I made a damn good apple pie that I am proud to share with you all!

Ingredients:

  • 9 inch pie crust (or use a recipe for pastry dough for a single pie) I used the Pillsbury pie crust 
  • 4 LARGE Fuji Costco apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced 
  • 1/2 cup white sugar 
  • 2 tbsp flour 
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar 
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425

Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, lemon juice and apples. Take half of the apple mixture and place in blender or food processor and pulse until puréed (add a tiny bit of water if needed). Pour sliced apples in crust and add the purée on top. Mix apples in the crust a little more if desired.

Combine brown sugar, white sugar, flour and diced butter. Use hands to mash together to make a crumble. Top pie with the brown sugar butter mixture. 

Place pie on a baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour. Halfway through (30 mins) cover pie with foil so the top doesn’t burn. Bake until top of pie and browned on top and you can poke a knife into the apples smoothly. 

Cool and serve with a nice hearty scoop of vanilla ice cream!
