  • difference between apple pie & dutch applie pie???
    I made an apple pie this weekend and it turned out so good - it was the first apple pie I've ever made! Anyway, while I was looking at recipes, I came across dutch apple pie. What's the difference between that and regular apple pie?

    I thought the difference was the top crust. With a Dutch Apple Pie the crust is a crumb topping.

    That's what I thought too. An apple pie has the pie crust on top and the Dutch Apple Pie has a crumb topping.

    That sounds right - I remember seeing the crumb topping recipe wtih the dutch apple. Thanks a lot!!!

    I am not really sure but I think Cakedec is correct. I believe that the Dutch Apple has the crumb crust. There is some type of apple pie that has raisins in it and it also has white icing on the top crust. Is this pie called a French Apple Pie or a Danish Apple Pie? It has the name of some country in its name. I haven't had or thought about this type of pie in a long time. It was delicious.

    What's the name of this pie? Come on folks, I am sure someone out there has the answer.

    Ok I remember now its the french apple w/raisins in it....

    OK...now that we know the name, let's see if we can find a good recipe for it. This post brought back memories of how wonderful that pie was. I used to purchase it at the bakery and the grocery store. The bakery is long gone and I don't see them in the grocery store any more.

    Personally, if I had a good apple pie recipe, I would tend to just add raisins to the filling.

    Whenever I make an apple pie it's almost always with a top crumb crust. This is the recipe my Mom always uses...but I don't know where it comes from, so I just call it Mom's Apple Pie. Hope you enjoy!

    Mom's Apple Pie

    1/2 C sugar
    1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon
    Pastry for single crust (recipe follows)

    1/3 C sugar
    3/4 C flour

    KY Kate... that is a good idea. Then maybe just do a powdered sugar type of icing. Thanks

    So far as I know.the French and Danish
    don't have pies,since their pastries have a different dough. The French have Tarts and the Danish their Apple "Pie" has a crust with white icinng on top.When I have time,I will look for some recipes.
    I hope I am right.

    My Betty Crocker (1961 edition) cookbook gives the following recipe for Dutch Apple Pie:

    Make a two crust apple pie except make extra large slits in top crust. Then five minutes before baking time is up, remove pie from oven. Pour 1/2 cup whipping cream through slits in top crust. Return to oven and finish baking.

    French Apple Pie:
    Make pastry for one crust pie. Line pie pan. Add filling as in recipe for apple pie using minimum amount of sugar. Sprinkle with:
    Crumb Topping:
    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
    1 cup flour
    Mix all ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle on pie. Bake at 400 degrees 45 to 55 minutes. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.

    Regular 9 inch pie
    3/4 to 1 cup sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg
    6 to 7 cups sliced pared apples
    1 1/2 tbsp butter
    Heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Mix lightly through apples. Heap up in pastry lined pan. Cover with top crust;seal and flute. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until crust is nicely browned.
