The easiest Dutch apple pie and the scrummiest. This is THE traditional Dutch treat for birthdays or visitors. Preparation very quick and you can't go wrong! Add a cup of raisins to apples if desired.

  • In a medium bowl, combine butter, sugar, egg and flour. Stir with spoon for a few moments until mixture hangs together a bit. Then use hands to form dough. Pat a bit more than 1/2 of the dough on the bottom and sides of 9 inch pie dish.

  • Fill pie shell with apples and dust them with cinnamon. Crumble the rest of the dough over top of apples until they are more or less covered evenly. If desired, sprinkle a handful of sugar over the top for a sugary top crust. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.

Here's a huge hint with this recipe. The Dutch don't really use a pie plate for this style of pie. They use a springform pan. You just simply pat the dough into the greased and floured pan and then add your apples. It's quick and delicious. You might have to place a piece of aluminum foil on the top to keep it from burning.

I halved this recipe in order to make a single 9" pie. Either the measurements given were wrong or the dough is meant to be very wet. It was difficult to work with and was very greasy. I will not make this recipe again. Read More

This turned out SO good! Our homeschool group participates each year in an 'International Festival' and this year my family chose Holland. I searched and searched for recipes and found this one and boy am I glad I did. Ive had multiple requests for the recipe from the moms in my group. I had no problem whatsoever with the dough and it turned out perfectly...ONE SUGGESTION...you definitely DO NOT need that many apples. I would suggest for One recipe to use 4-5 large apples. 8 just will not fit! Raisins added are a plus also! Read More

This pie just did not turn out! The dough was a wet mess and I probably needed a deep dish pie pan which was not stated in the recipe. The sugar topping did not leave the crunch I was expecting. Read More

it sure was quick and easy as promised and it tasted good enough. but I must have got something wrong: I could not possibly find enough room in the small quantity of pastry for so many "large apples" as directed so I put only six and not large at all...so I had a very little apple pie more similar to an apple crumb than I expected.
