Dutch Apple Pie
“There seems to be a divide wherein American home cooking sites largely refer to a Dutch apple pie as a deep-dish apple pie (sometimes, but not always, in a cake pan) with a crumb topping and Dutch (or Dutch-sounding; I do not speak the language** so am making an educated guess) cooks use a more cookie-like dough that’s cross-crossed on top with a shiny finish. Fortunately, around this time I remembered that one of my son’s good friend’s mom is Dutch and she was happy to set me on the right course: yes the lattice is shiny, the dough is sweet and more buttery tasting than its American counterpart, the end result looks more like a cake.”
If you’re a pie lover like me, then you’ve gotta try making this delicious Dutch Apple Pie! It’s nice and deep and loaded with perfectly-spiced apples encased in a sweet and buttery lattice pie crust. Some people like to top their Dutch Apple Pie with either whipped cream or ice cream, but take a note from my book and add some caramel sauce on top too. You will be so happy.
