Today, I am excited to share with you the ultimate recipe for the Best Ever Dutch Apple Pie! This mouth-watering dessert is sure to be a hit with your friends and family, and is perfect for any occasion, from holidays to potlucks to a simple family gathering.

To begin, let’s dive into the ingredients that you will need for this delicious pie:

For the crust:
– 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
– 1/4 cup ice water

For the filling:
– 5 cups thinly sliced and peeled apples (Granny Smith is recommended)
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

For the streusel topping:
– 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
– 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
– pinch of salt

Now that we have the ingredients lined up, let’s start with the crust. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Add the butter and use a pastry cutter or your hands to mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the ice water and mix until the dough comes together. Flatten the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and place it into a 9-inch pie dish. Trim off the excess and prick the crust with a fork. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. Mix until the apples are coated evenly. Pour the mixture into the pre-baked crust and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter.

Next, prepare the streusel topping. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, oats, and salt. Add the butter and mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the streusel over the apple mixture.

Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
