Favorite Dutch Apple Pie Recipe

Everything about this dessert makes it the top request for family gatherings and one of our favorite apple pie recipes. The delightful crust cuts beautifully to reveal a filling with pieces of diced apple. At harvesttime or any time, you cannot beat this delectable apple pie. —Brenda DuFresne, Midland, Michigan

MY REVIEW

I tried this recipe a couple weeks ago and I knew with the first bite it was going to be my favorite thing to make so everyone I love has gotten a pie!

I followed the recipe exactly and like it a lot. The flavor profile is unexpected and very different but I enjoyed it. I do intend to try it again but without the glaze and vanilla using sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. I absolutely love the crust!!!

I gave this four stars because it needed tweaking. I wouldn't even consider making a dessert with apples without cinnamon. So yes, I did the same. I added a tsp of cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. I also had some trouble with the cornstarch clumping up in the water no matter how long I boiled the water. So I wound up with a few gummy clumps in my pie. So next time I make this I would have to add the cornstarch slowly. Also, I baked mine for 40 mins and it was too long. My crust was hard and it was darker brown (not like the picture)...but then again, I should have known because that is how my oven is...SO YES, I would definitely make this again and just bake it for less time and would also solve my cornstarch problem. The flavor was great WITH the added spices.

In the Netherlands we call this kind of Pie "oma's appel Taart" a Nan's apple Pie in english but in all Dutch apple pies there will be Cinnamon in it.

For a twist add about 100gr (about 4 ounces) raisins into apple mix. It taste delicious

Great crust and topping, but where is the cinnamon? I added cinnamon and nutmeg and got some great reviews from family and friends. I didn't cook the apples, I just added them to the filling and this turned out fine. I slice my apples thin so this probably helped.
