Dutch Apple Pie

 I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner this year.  I can't remember the last time I made a pie.  I used to make them all the time for the holidays.  This is a different take on a Dutch apple pie.  It was really good.  I used Gala apples so the pie is not a tart one.  Give it a try.  Sorry I forgot to get a shot of it cut.

  • 1 pie crust, homemade or bought, 9"*homemade it better*
  • 3 lbs apples, peeled, cored and cut into slices
  • 4 Tbsp butter (50 g)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • zest of ¼ lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp butter (80 g) cold
  2. Melt butter in a large pot. Add brown and white sugar and water and stir to combine.
  3. Add flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon zest and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
  4. Add apple slices and mix carefully until apples are coated with the sauce. Pour into the pie crust.
  6. Put almonds, rolled oats, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a food processor. Process until you get fine crumbs. Add butter and pulse a few times. Sprinkle evenly over pie filling. (To get larger crumbs, squeeze topping with your fingers.)
  7. Bake for 45 minutes in preheated 350 F (175 C) oven.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, have a wonderful week and Always Remember to Find the Time to do ALL the things YOU L♥ve.
