Open Face Dutch Apple Pie
Believe it or not, we still have a few apples from our tree that are begging to be baked. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been up to my elbows in pies.
Making some for work, some for the kids, and for the generous family who bought my “Pie a month for a Year” at our church’s big fundraiser Viva Italia, back in October.
How to Make Apple Pie
- Cut and peel six cups of apple slices then place them in a pie shell. Either make a homemade pie crust or buy one in a grocery store.
- Mix some cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together and put it over the apples.
- Create a topping of brown sugar, flour, and butter (with optional pecans or walnuts if desired) and sprinkle this combination over the spice mixture.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until the apples are tender and the pie crust is lightly brown.
- Let the pie set for 30 minutes before slicing, if you have the willpower!
Most of us have a favorite pie. Although I can’t say I fall within what is likely the majority of those who hold apple pie at the top of their list, to my knowledge, I have never turned down a slice of this variety.
