Dutch Apple Pie

Ingredients for dough and filling:

  • 2.5 cups all purpose flour and save some for putting on your counter or board for rolling out the dough!
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
    **HINT: Salt is important when baking! 
  • 1 stick + 6 tablespoons of softened (but not melted) unsalted butter
    **HINT: Just let the butter sit on the counter for a while before you start baking.
  • A little bit of ice water
  • 6 large apples cored and cut into cubes (or slices)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    **HINT: Apples turn brown quickly without some kind of acidity coating them. 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (not powder; they don’t work the same way)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans

Directions for dough:

  • Whisk together 1.25 cups of flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. 
  • Add one stick of butter, cubed, and mix until crumbly. 
  • Drizzle in ice water and continue to mix. 
  • Form dough into a disc (or ball), cover in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until it’s hardened up. Probably 30 minutes to an hour.
Directions for filling and topping:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • In a bowl, mix together apples, lemon juice, sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, and cinnamon.
    **HINT: Make sure the apples are coated in your mixture. 
  • Roll out the pie crust on your floured surface and fit it into a deep dish ten inch pan. 
  • Fill with the apple mixture. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together one cup of flour, brown sugar, baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. 
  • Add six tablespoons of softened butter and mix until crumbly and sandy in texture and then add pecans. 
  • Press the mixture into clumps with your fingers (it should be crumbly) and cover the pie with it. 
  • Bake the pie in the center of the oven for about 15 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for another 45 minutes.
  •  Let cool completely before serving and then enjoy with ice cream or try homemade whipped cream!

This recipe is a good dessert for that dinner party you’ve been wanting to throw or to impress someone special! The recipe looks long, but I promise you will not be wanting anything else to eat for dessert after you’ve made this.
