Crumble Topping makes this Dutch Apple Pie Perfect
I have been searching for years for an old fashion apple crumb pie that tasted like what I remember my Grandmother making, and I’ve finally found one that has the best crumble topping ever.
A few months back I received a request to review the 65th Edition Mennonite Community Cookbook and since then I have been trying recipe after recipe. Some I won’t make again, but most of them are a big hit. I enjoy cooking and baking from ingredients I always have in my pantry and this cookbook is full of old fashion recipes just like your Grandmother would make. No store bought pre-packaged ingredients… just wholesome made from scratch recipes.
I used Granny Smith apples in this my pie and the tartness was a perfect match for the sweet crumble topping.
This will be a recipe you save and use over and over again!
- 6 tart apples
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup butter
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Pastry for on 9 inch shell
- Pare apples and cut into eights.
- Mix 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over apples.
- Put apple mixture into unbaked shell.
- Combine remaining sugar and flour. Add butter and rub together until crumbs are formed.
- Sprinkle fine crumbs over apples.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350 degrees.
- Bake 35 minutes longer.
- Reheat just before serving.
- Delicious when served with cheese.
