A flaky, tender, homemade crust bursting with tart & sweet apples, and the best part; a crumbly oat topping! Serve with some vanilla bean ice cream, freshly whipped cream and you have Fall in a bowl.
Here is the recipe that I promised you 3 days ago! It’s been an interesting few days. For some reason, my two girls have gone candy crazy! I bought some of those mallowcream pumpkin candies for some cookies I was planning on making; well, I left the girls alone while, heaven forbid, I went and took a shower and I came back to orange goo running down their faces and all over my new pillows and blanket in the living room. Ugh! What is it with girls and sweet tooths?! My son could care less about candy, sugar, chocolate, and all that stuff (he still eats it, don’t get me wrong) but my two girls like need it.
Anyways, I can’t get the orange-y colored goo off the new pillows 🙁 and I am attempting for the second time, to clean their clothes. Oh, and if you’re wondering, I found 10 of those mallowcream pumpkins left. From the entire bag!
Let’s just say they each got their teeth brushed for 10 minutes, for real! Which, I had to brush several times anyways to get all the marshmallow gunk that was caked onto their teeth.
Ok, enough with my ruined pillows (which I still cry about, not literally, but I’m bummed about them) and sugar obsessed children 🙂
This pie is dee-licious! I normally do not make my own crust but when I saw the recipe for this crust, I was intrigued. Only 1 bowl, uses oil, and there were no fancy or complicated directions for it. So I just had to try it. It was so flaky and tender. I don’t think it would work as a pie crust for everything, or maybe it would? I will have to experiment 🙂
I love the dutch apple pies because instead of a double pie crust; top and bottom, it has a crumbly oat topping instead.
Look at that?! Tart & sweet apples (tons of them) with that crumbly oat topping. It reminds me of an apple crisp, but in pie form.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 tablespoons cold milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 6 cups (5-6 apples) thinly sliced & peeled apples, a combination of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into small chunks
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the oil and milk. Mix with a fork until dough comes together.
- Press evenly on the bottom and sides of pie plate. Refrigerate while preparing filling and topping.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large bowl combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.
- Add apple slices and toss gently to coat. Spread apple mixture evenly in the pie crust.
- Stir together brown sugar, flour and oats.
- Cut in the chopped butter with pastry blender, fork, or hands until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over pie filling.
- Place pie on a cookie sheet to catch any drippings.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes. If pie crust and topping is browning towards the end of cooking time, lay a piece of foil loosely over the pie to prevent.
- Let cool for 30-60 minutes so that the pie can firm up and come together. Serve warm (or cold!) with ice cream and/or freshly whipped cream.
I hope you enjoy your Sunday! The weather is cooling down here, so I have some warm & comforting soups/chili coming your way 🙂 Enjoy friends, xoxo!
