Chandler’s Dutch Apple Pie

Woohoo! It’s Wednesday, which is basically Thursday and nearly Friday right?! You deserve a little treat to yourself. This dutch apple pie is just the thing and it’s a double bonus because it will make your house smell AMAZING. Served with some vanilla ice cream (the only way I choose to eat pie, especially this one) you will be in love. I found a few recipes and then tweaked them all, added my own flair and made it my own recipe. I’ll try my best to walk you through it and trust me, it is SO much easier than you probably think.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Krusteaz Boxed Pie Mix

6 Granny Smith Apples

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

1/2 cup White Sugar

1/4 cup Brown Sugar

3 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg

TOPPING:

1 1/2 cup Flour

1/2 cup White Sugar

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

2/3 cup Butter

Bakes at 375 Degrees for 50 minutes.

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetPreheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mix up the pie crust mix as directed by box. I have tried several boxed crusts and Krusteaz is by far my favorite. I usually add just a little bit more water than the box suggests! Once I have got it a little stirred up I honestly just use my hands to mix up the rest. It takes waaay less time! The dough should be a little flakey!

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetI make sure to put plenty of flour on whatever surface I will be rolling the dough onto as well as on the rolling pin. It doesn’t have to look pretty when you roll it out. Just smooth it down to your thickness of choice. Then fit it into the pie pan, using knife to clean off the rough edges.

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetTo get the pie crust edge like this, use one thumb to press out from the inside of the pie while using your other thumb and index finger to smooth down the side around it. You can youtube this method for a better idea of how to do it!Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetPeel your apples first!Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with m5 presetI decided that I like to cut my apples with an apple cutter, then cut them into thinner horizontal slices and then cut them again into halves vertically. The photograph above is how I would hold the apple to cut it first, and then how it is cut after that. I don’t like getting a huge gob of apple slice in my pie, I wanted them to be smaller and more manageable.Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetTransferring the apples as the are cut.Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetOnce the apples are all sliced, combine the ingredients for the inside of the pie together.Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetDump into the pie crust. (Remember, this recipe yields two pies so you will be spitting the apples into to crusts!) Mix up the topping; flour, sugars and butter with a fork until combined, disperse evenly it onto the two pies and toss into the oven for 50 minutes exactly!image

And tadaaa! You did it. Not so bad, right? Now scoop some vanilla ice cream and enjoy! 🙂
