Homemade Dutch Apple Pie

Dutch Apple pie has always been a favorite in my family. Since Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, I wanted to try making a homemade Dutch Apple Pie before the holiday. I have included the recipe down below, so you can try making it for this upcoming Thanksgiving. I look forward to reading all your comments!

Ingredients: 

9 X 9 baking dish

Filling:

1 frozen Pillsbury pie crust

6 cups, about 8 apples (peeled and diced, you can use any type of apples such as Granny Smith or Macintosh, but I used Gala’s, Golden Delicious, and Snow Sweets.)

½ cup white sugar

½ cup brown sugar

3 tbsp of flour (I used a blend of almond and bread flour)

¾ tsp of ground cinnamon

¼ tsp of nutmeg

Topping: 

¾ cup of flour (I used a blend of almond and bread flour)

1/3 cup softened butter

¼ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Peel and dice your apples.
  3. Put small slices in bottom crust and bake for about 10 minutes, (so it doesn’t get soggy on the bottom)
  4. Mix all of the dry filling ingredients & mix in the apples. (Make sure to coat the apples really well.
  5. Pour into prepared crust.

6. In another bowl, mix flour, sugars, and cinnamon for the topping of the pie. 

7. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the dry ingredients for the topping until it becomes a crumbly texture using a fork. 

8. Pour on top of the pie making sure to cover all of the apples.

9. Place on a foil lined baking sheet, before placing into oven for 50 minutes or until topping is golden brown.

10. When finished, remove from oven. Let cool before serving.

11. Enjoy!!

Cranberry sauce is one of my favorite dishes to have on the table during the Thanksgiving holiday. Usually for Thanksgiving, my family and I buy the canned cranberry sauce in order to save time, but this year I decided to make my own. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out at first, but it was very simple to prepare and very tasty! I have included the recipe down below, so you can try making it for this upcoming Thanksgiving.

Makes 8-10 servings

Things you’ll need:

2/3 cup water

2/3 cup sugar

1- 6oz bag of whole cranberries 

Instructions:

  1. Add water and sugar to saucepan, and let it boil.
  2. Add the cranberries, and return to a boil.
  3. Turn the heat down to low, and stir occasionally until cranberries are purple, or the skin pops. 40 min for 1 hour for full bag.
  4. Remove from heat, and let it sit at room temperature.
  5. Put in bowl and serve immediately, or put it in the fridge until ready to serve
  6. ENJOY!!
