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!
- 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
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!
