You can have it both ways after all—at least when it comes to apple desserts. This Dutch Apple Pie is one of our highest-rated recipes, combining everything you love about apple pie and everything you love about apple crisp into one wonderful dessert. It’s best served warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a big scoop of ice cream. This pastry crust is a scratch recipe that’s worth the extra trouble, but you’re intimidated by homemade pastry, you could also use a box of Betty Crocker™ Pie Crust Mix
. Interestingly, the origins of Dutch Apple Pie go back all the way to the Middle Ages. It was (and still is in some parts of the world) a creamy, spiced apple filling with either a crumble or a lattice top. However, in the US it has come to mean a classic apple pie with a crumble topping like this one. Once you’ve mastered one crumble-topped pie, you might never go back. Try another like this popular Sugar Cookie Apple Cheesecake Pie
that uses a pouch of Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix
to make the crust and topping.
