Dutch Apple Pie
A recipe for these beautiful home grown apples.

The Apples

I was given these apples as a present from my future mother-in-law. They were grown in her backyard and are MIL certified organic. "They're organic. Not because we tried, but because we didn't try. They just grew without us having to put any chemicals on them!"






Aren't they beautiful?? I've eaten quite a few by themselves and they're crisp and sweet and delicious. BUT... I simply cannot eat enough of them before they go bad, so I decided to turn a handful of them into a pie.

The Pie

I chose to make a Dutch apple pie because I love the crumbly topping! This recipe can be divided into 3 separate parts.

The Crust:

1 1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup ice cold water






The Apple Filling:

Sliced apples (enough to fill a pie)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp gluten free all purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp melted butter





The Crumble Topping:

3/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter (room temp)

The crust

Combine the flour and salt and then stir in the cold butter. Once that is mixed, add the ice water one Tbsp at a time. Form the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Unwrap the cold dough and quickly press it into a chilled pie dish.






Bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust starts to brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and let cool while you prepare the rest of the pie.

Decrease the oven temperature to 350°F.

On a side note

Has anyone else noticed the awesome new packaging on brown sugar??

At least for me, my brown sugar would always dry out and go bad after I opened it unless I put it in a tupperware, but C&H has added a new sticky tab that does a great job of resealing the original sugar bag so that your sugar stays good without having to transfer containers : )
