Dutch Apple Pie! The classic apple pie with a crunchy top and drizzled with warm caramel.
This is one my husband’s most favorite of them all desserts. Next to brownies, of course. 😉
I usually make some type of apple pie each fall. We take the kids apple picking and have loads of apples. So, naturally, we make pie with them.
It’s such a classic and is a bit different from your average apple pie.
Here is a brief breakdown:
- We start out with a pastry pie crust. Homemade,frozen or refrigerator crusts will all work fine. Just be sure to use a 9 inch pie plate and if using frozen, let it defrost before using.
- Next, we pile on our thick, sugary, apple-ly filling. When cooking it, filling should only take 2-3 minutes to get thick. Keep a close eye on it!
- Then, it’s top with a nice, crunchy, crumb topping. If needed, you can make this the day before you bake your pie. Keep it stored in the fridge in a covered container and use when you are ready.
- Drizzling your pie with some caramel sauce is optional, but, highly recommended. Of course, whipped cream and vanilla ice cream are perfect optional toppings too. 😉
This Dutch Apple Pie is simple, delicious and just right for #PieSeason!
