Dutch Apple Pie Main 11-3

Dutch Apple Pie Recipe

Apple Pie is one of my all-time favorites! I usually make the double crust Apple Pie but I’m up for a change! I’m going to try this Dutch Apple Pie!

Dutch Apple Pie Ingredients 11-3

Different kinds of apples will give your pie a different flavor. Granny Smith apples are more tart while Red Delicious are more sweet. My favorite is Fuji…just the right blend of tart and sweet!

While you core and slice the apples, keep them sprinkled with a little lemon juice and they won’t turn brown. That also adds a little tangyness to the flavor of the pie.

You can pile the apples a little higher than crust. They’ll bake down as the pie cooks.
