Reviews forFavorite Dutch Apple Pie
"This was so easy - love the preparation technique for the crust and topping! I thought it needed some spice so next time I made it I added in 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon to the flour mixture. I also added 1/2 cup chopped nuts (typically peans or walnuts), and I thought this provided some nice crunch. I will definitely make this pie again!"
"This pie was easy to prepare. The no roll crust and topping is delicious. As I was making this pie, I noticed it did not call for any cinnamon. After reading several other reviews, I decided to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to the filling. I would also reserve more like 1 1/2 cups of the crust mixture for the topping."
"I would have given this 5 stars, however, it definitely lacks cinnamon and nutmeg! I should have read the reviews before I made it. I think with those additions, this would be a 10 star pie! LOVE the crust! I love that it adds more texture and flavor vs a standard crust. I might even add some finely chopped walnuts or pecans to the streusel topping!"

"I have made this for years and it is a family favorite! I do add a little cinnamon to apples."
