Dutch Apple Pie

October 8, 2020

  • 1 (9 inch) pie shell
  • 5 cups apples – peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup rolled oats 
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup butter 
  • SPRINKLE VANILLA OVER PIE FILLING

Directions

  • Step 1
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Fit pastry shell into pie pan and place in freezer.
  • Step 2
  • To Make Apple Filling: Place apples in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine 2 tablespoons flour, white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Mix well, then add to apples. Toss until apples are evenly coated. Add a sprinkle of vanilla over apples.
  • Step 3
  • Remove pie shell from freezer. Place apple mixture in pie shell and dot with 2 tablespoons butter or margarine. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil lightly on top of filling, but do not seal.
  • Step 4
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • Step 5
  • While filling is baking, make Streusel Topping: In a medium bowl combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, oats, and lemon peel. Mix thoroughly, then cut in 1/2 cup butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly. Remove filling from oven and sprinkle streusel on top.
  • Step 6
  • Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake an additional 30 to 35 minutes, until streusel is browned and apples are tender. Cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning.
