Dutch Apple Pie

I recently visited a local orchard and decided that the time was right for apple pie.  I cut this recipe out of Taste of Home magazine years ago and had never tried it until now.  We enjoyed eating this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  It was the perfect fall treat!

Dutch Apple Pie

2 cups all purpose flour                                                                

1 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup melted butter or margarine

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats


2/3 cup sugar

3 T cornstarch

1 1/4 cups water

3 cups diced peeled tart apples

1 tsp vanilla extract


1.  Combine the first four ingredients; set aside 1 cup for topping.


2.  Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 9-inch pie plate; set aside.


3.  For the filling, combine sugar, cornstarch and water in a saucepan until smooth;  bring to a boil.  Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened.  Remove from heat;  stir in apples and vanilla.




4.  Pour into crust; top with reserved crumb mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 – 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown.



Would you believe that I forgot to take a picture of the pie when it came out of the oven??  It’s all gone now.  You’ll have to take my word that it was good!

  1. This looks great…and such a pretty pie plate. I like the addition of oats in the crust. Will have to give a try 🙂
