Steph's Fantastic Dutch Apple Pie step by step
- Pre-heat oven to 425 F.
- Peel, core and slice apples..
- As you cut the apples put them in a big bowel of water (to prevent browning).
- Add other filling ingredients directly to freezer bag.
- Drain apples in colander. Add them to the plastic bag with filler ingredients. And shake bag till apples are coated..
- In a separate bowl, cut together all the crumb topping ingredients (if you don't have a pastry cutter, you can use 2 butter knives in a cross slicing motion).
- Cut butter and topping together until pea-sized.
- Put the pie shell on a cookie sheet.
- Flip the bag of Apple filling into the pie shell. It will be overflowing with apples (your going to have to pile them in the center and make a mound).
- pull plastic bag off, keeping the apples from falling- don't worry they will cook drown.
- Then press the topping onto the pile of apples (easiest way is to grab a hand full and press it on) making sure all the apples are covered. It's going to make a mess and fall off, you'll have to wipe the topping off the cookie sheet and add it back to the pie. (Wipe cookie sheet with paper towel when done – keeps butter from burning in the pan).
- Put the cookie sheet and the pie into the oven. (Don't just pick up the pie. It's so full you will loose apples if you do).
- Bake on 425 for 40 minutes.
- Cover pie with tin foil (doesn't have to be sealed to pie just place it on top) and bake another 10 min – stops the topping from over cooking.
- Put a butter knife into the pie, if you feel the apples are still uncooked, cover and cook in 5 minute intervals till done..
- Serve warm with real whip cream! (Or al la mode).
