Dutch Apple Pie Recipe

One of my all-time favorite Thanksgiving pie recipes is a good, old fashioned apple pie (with ice cream, of course.)

There are several ways you can bake an apple pie, but my favorite is Dutch-style. I love the crumble on top – especially when it melts together with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Here's a great recipe for you to try this Thanksgiving that’s quick, easy and incredibly delicious!

  • 5 large granny smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose four
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 9-inch pie crust (store-bought or homemade)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange cut/peeled apples in the pie crust in your pie pan. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon. Pour over apples in crust. Sprinkle lemon juice on top. Use 2 knives to cut 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and 1/2 cup butter or margarine together to make the crumble, and top pie with the mixture. Take two 15 inch pieces of parchment paper and enclose pie; fold edges up 3 times.

Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven, open parchment paper and cool pie on wire rack. Do not open parchment covering while baking! Serve warm, or at room temperature.

Makes: One 9-inch round pie

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour
