This recipe is my version of another Dutch apple pie recipe that I've baked many times. My husband and daughter just love this pie and ask me to make it for them all of the time. I have also had to give this recipe out to many of my friends.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Brush the bottom and sides of the crust evenly with egg yolk.
  3. Bake on a baking sheet until light brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the crust from oven.
  5. Combine the sliced apples, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 Tbs flour, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
  6. Mix well and mound into crust.
  7. Mix remaining flour, sugar, brown sugar and margarine with fingers until crumbly.
  8. Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over apples.
  9. Bake on baking sheet until topping is golden and filling is bubbling; about 50 minutes.
  10. Cool thoroughly (at least 3 hours).
  11. Serve at room temperature.
  12. Note: This pie is best when it is eaten the same day or the next day that it is baked.
  13. If it sits for a long time, the crust and topping aren't as crunchy.

I made this pie yesterday around 5. It is now noon, and the pie is gone, need I say more? I used a little bit more apple than was called for the increase the fruity taste of it, and cut back the margerine to 4 T.

I love this pie! It actually caused me to wake up early on Sunday morning so that I could have a piece for breakfast. :) The only thing that went wrong is that I didn't watch it toward the end and the edges of the crust got kind of burnt. That's my fault though so I'm still going to give it 5 stars. Next time I'll put a little foil around the edges and that should keep it from getting too brown.

This is real easy to make and tastes great, and I'm a rookie baker. I almost screwed up on step number 5, read that as 1/3 tbs flour, Salt, AND Cinnamon. Thought, wow that's a lot of salt. :) Thankfully I tasted the mix before proceeding (mouth really puckered up). So be careful there (1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon).
