Dutch Apple Pie

Products Used


Pie Crust

Pie Filling

  • 1 cup (200g) Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (6g) cinnamon (Vietnamese preferred)
  • Pinch nutmeg (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons (24g) all-purpose flour*
  • 4 standard-size Granny Smith apples
  • 3 standard-size Golden Delicious apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons (56g) unsalted butter

Dutch Crumble Topping

  • 1 1/4 cup (150g) unbleached all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 cup (108g) Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar, well packed
  • 1 teaspoon (2g) cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoon (112g) cold unsalted butter


  • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Prepare or thaw a 9-inch pie crust and place it on an aluminum foil-lined cookie tray for easy clean up after baking. Set aside. 
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. Combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour in a large bowl.
  4. Peel and quarter apples and cut each quarter crosswise into 6 slices. Toss in sugar mixture to prevent browning of apples. Add lemon juice and vanilla.
  5. Arrange apple filling in piecrust. Melt butter and pour over apple filling.
  6. Prepare crumble by combining flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Using a cheese grater, grate very cold butter into small pieces directly onto flour mixture.
  7. Rub between your hands to turn streusel into small lumps, and consequently into crumbles.
  8. Sprinkle crumble topping generously over apples and place in oven. Bake for 10 minutes and then reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Keep in oven for about 75 minutes or until apple filling makes thick bubbles (consistency of honey) which are visibly showing on top of pie. If the pie gets too dark during baking, cover loosely with aluminum foil. 
  9. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and serve warm or cold.
