Recipe: Dutch Apple Pie

Yesterday (3/14/15) was Pi Day.  As in the math number 3.1415926…  We won’t see that date again for another 100 years, so my daughters and I decided to celebrate the day by making a pie.  Of course, any excuse to make and eat a pie, we’ll take it!  🙂  My daughters chose to make a dutch apple pie.  It turned out delicious!  Here is our recipe:

Dutch Apple Pie


  • 2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

 Apple Filling

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 3 cups apples, peeled, cored, and cut into bite-sized pieces (I use Empire apples)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1. Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. Combine flour, brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar, butter, and oats in a large bowl. Set aside 1 cup of mixture for topping.
    3. Add cinnamon to the topping mixture.
    4. Press the remaining mixture into an ungreased 9-in pie plate; set aside.
    5. Combine 2/3 cup sugar, cornstarch, and water in a saucepan until smooth; bring to a boil.
    6. Cook and stir for 1 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.
    7. Stir in apples and vanilla.
    8. Pour filling into crust.
    9. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over the apple filling.
    10. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
