♥ Dutch Apple Pie



I love the way my house smells right now...apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar....yum. This is my Mom's old recipe she used when it was apple season and she wanted a change up from your typical American hot apple pie. I always loved this one. 





Dutch Apple Pie

Pie Crust (Or buy a pre-made refrigerated pie crust)

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 to 4 tablespoons ice water

In a food processor, briefly pulse flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add up to 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon at a time). Don't over mix.

Turn dough out onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Fold plastic over dough; press to shape into a 1-inch-thick disk. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to 3 days).

On a floured piece of parchment paper, roll dough to a 14-inch round with a floured rolling pin. Wrap dough around rolling pin, discarding paper; unroll over a 9-inch pie plate (opposite). Gently fit into bottom and up sides of plate (do not stretch dough).

Filling

5 1/2 cups peeled cored sliced cooking apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Topping:

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fit pie crust into pie plate and trim off edges. In a large bowl, mix sliced apples, lemon juice, both sugars,flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. pour into crust.

Prepare topping:In a medium bowl, with a pastry blender or a fork, mix flour, both sugars, and butter until coarsely crumbled. Sprinkle evenly over apples.

Bake at 375 for 50 minutes. (If your crust gets too brown early on, cover the edges of the pie crust with tin foil and continue baking)
