When I was a kid I wasn’t much of an apple pie lover, but the older I get the more I enjoy it. I especially love Dutch apple pie, which is simply a style that incorporates a crumble or streusel (I will forever be a sucker for streusel topping on any baked good). Recently, I found myself with a surplus of pie dough and crumble topping, and thought it was the perfect time for some deep dish apple pie.
You might be asking yourself, “why deep dish?” I gave up the traditional pie tin long ago. In my book, all it’s good for is keeping Marty McFly out of harm’s way (bonus points for recognizing that deep cut reference). For reasons I discuss in the video, I’m a deep dish man (spoiler alert: it holds more filling and is more stable).
This video recipe covers the creation of the apple pie filling, rolling out your crust, pie assembly, and baking. Get the more in depth pie dough recipe here, and find the printable recipes for this apple pie here.
Grab your pie dough and a couple apples, we’re going baking!
