Dutch Apple Pie



Long time no see! My apologies for the long break between posts. Summer is busy and time seems to slip away so quickly. As my apology to you, I have an amazing recipe for a delicious Dutch Apple Pie. The crumb topping on this baby makes all the difference. Serve however you prefer, warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or maybe chilled from the fridge. Enjoy!

  3. Just wanted to let you know that somehow you have a virus on your page!!! Every time I tried to come to the page from the link on my blogger account, my Norton's pops up and says it blocked an attack. Not sure what it's from, but wanted to give you a heads up :) And I can't wait to try the pie!!

    1. Apples known as 'cooking apples' are the best as they hold up better when baked. McIntosh, granny smith, etc. Here is a link with more types of cooking apples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooking_apple

    1. Sorry, I don't do a whole lot of canning at the moment. I would look up a specific recipe for canning pie filling so that you are making sure you are getting it to the correct temperature to kill any bacteria, just to be extra safe.
