This recipe is for my mom's tasty Dutch Apple Pie. I love making this for the holidays. It's easy to make and it has a wonderful flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat one egg and brush into the bottom and sides of the graham cracker pie crust. Cook the pie crust for 5 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees.
  2. After removing the pie crust from the oven, combine all filling ingredients and spoon into the crust.
  3. Mix all topping ingredients with a pastry cutter until blended well and crumbly. Top filled pie with topping and bake for 50 minutes at 375 degrees.
  4. You can use either a regular pastry pie crust, or a graham cracker crust. I use a graham cracker crust because it gives the pie a sweeter, more flavorful taste. I always use a store bought graham cracker crust only because it's faster than making one, however, if you have a great homemade graham cracker crust recipe, the pie will present prettier in a nice pie dish. I usually buy the 9 ounce graham cracker crust. It's a little larger (and will usually be labeled with "2 extra servings" on the package) because by the time you get your topping on the pie it's pretty full.
  5. If you would prefer to make this recipe gluten free, use a gluten free flour mixture in the filling and the topping mixes. For the crust substitute with either a gluten free pastry, or a gluten free graham cracker crust, or simply bake without the crust in a pan and top with some vanilla ice cream (Edy's Grand French Vanilla is gluten free).
  6. Yum! Enjoy.

Delicious!!! Super easy!!! I don't have a pastry blender so I just used a fork, turned out a little lumpy on top because of that. Going to buy one because I plan to make this more often! It was great!!!

This is delicious! I used graham cracker pie crust and replaced the sugar with coconut sugar. I've tried a few apple pie recipes in the past and this is by far my favorite! This is a 5-star recipe, anyone that says otherwise is doing it wrong. Thanks for sharing it!

It's a shame that someone gave this recipe 1 star, bringing down the total score. Not sure where they went wrong but, if you follow the directions precisely, it's a delicious dessert. Brushing the crust with an egg, and baking it a few minutes prior to filling it, prevents it from becoming soggy. So, try not to forget that step.
