Classic apple pie is good, but Dutch apple pie, in my opinion, is far superior.

The credit goes to the incredible streusel topping, which makes this Dutch apple pie so flavorful and completely iressistable. Good luck with reasonable portions when this pie is on the menu.

This Dutch apple pie got some raving reviews at our last Thanksgiving meal (including from people who are compliment sparingly!), so be sure to Pin this recipe for your next get-together!

How to Make Dutch Apple Pie

the best Dutch apple pie

Yield: Makes two pies

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Baking Time: 45-55 minutes



  • 2 deep-dish pie crusts

I’m sure homemade pie crust would take this Dutch apple pie to a whole new level, but I’ll be honest- pie crust is just not my specialty. This recipe still tastes great with store-bought crust.

You do you.


  • 8 cups apples (peeled, sliced, and cored. I use Gala apples) 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 T (or to taste) ground cinnamon
  • 1 T lemon juice

Streusel Topping

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cold
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 T granulated sugar

Dutch apple pie before baking


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the Filling ingredients together. Spoon half the mixture into each pie crust.
  3. Grab a medium bowl to prepare the streusel topping in. To make the topping, use a pastry blender to mix the butter, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon until a crumb forms. Use a large spoon to sprinkle the mixture evenly over the top of the pies. Then sprinkle 1 tablespoon granulated sugar on top of each pie.
  4. Bake 45-55 minutes or until the pie crusts and topping are golden brown. Allow to cool for 15-20 minutes before serving.
Slice of Dutch apple pie

When ready to serve, place a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of each pie slice.
