A flaky crust filled with warm apples and topped with cinnamon streusel makes this Dutch Apple Pie the ultimate fall dessert. The perfect balance of sweet and spicy, it will cause apple dessert enthusiasts to swoon. This recipe is also scrumptious as a traditional 2-crust apple pie; double the pie crust recipe and omit the streusel topping.

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe unbaked Light & Flaky Pie Crust or unbaked gluten-free pie crust of choice
  • 6 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch/flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch/flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil, butter or oil of choice

Directions

1Preheat oven to 375°F.

2Line a 9-inch pie pan with crust. Flute the edges. Use your fingers to repair any tears in the crust, if needed.

3To make the filling, place sliced apples, lemon juice, sugars, tapioca starch/flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl and mix together until thoroughly combined.

4Pour filling into unbaked crust and spread it around until evenly distributed.

5To make the streusel topping, place walnuts, brown sugar, rice flour, tapioca starch/flour, and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl and mix together until thoroughly combined. Add coconut oil and mix until evenly distributed. Topping should be crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apple filling.

6Loosely cover the pie with aluminum foil to prevent the top from browning too quickly. Put pie on a baking sheet. Place in preheated oven and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until the filling bubbles, apples are fork-tender and the crust is cooked. Remove foil after 25 minutes to allow the top to brown.

7Take the pie from the oven and let cool before slicing.
