A really good apple pie. Few pastries can match that. This is an Old Dutch apple pie, like you used to get at grandma's and like I used to make at home.

Grandma's recipe?

What kind of strange name is that for an Old Dutch apple pie? Grandma's apple pie? As far as I know, my grandmother never baked an apple pie. In fact; I have never eaten at my grandmother's house in the years she was alive. Or she cooked…. no idea.

My mother – even though she is not a kitchen princess – always let me make the apple pie for every birthday. Because that's what you did in those days. If there was a birthday you baked an apple pie. And you made a cheesecake.

The cheesecake came standard from such a pack, but the apple pie, I always made it from scratch myself. So it should actually be called Simone's apple pie, but strangely enough, the term 'old Dutch' for apple pie immediately says what it is about.

Oh well, whatever you call it, the fact remains that it is simply a super delicious apple pie. An apple pie as an apple pie should be. Of course Tom's version of thehis grandfather's apple piealso quite tasty (with amaretto and spice!), but this one immediately reminds me of the past...

And now I'm thinking very hard about what was so nice about those birthdays of the past. Actually nothing... Except for that apple pie. It tastes best with a thick dollop of whipped cream, but in the absence of whipped cream (I forgot to get it) it also tastes exceptionally good with a scoop of good ice cream. Or just like that.

It's not really a special recipe, to be honest. You will probably see this recipe a thousand times if you Google it. But this is my version. Like I made countless times as a child. So it really shouldn't be missing from the site. And it's just really tasty. And that's what it's all about after all!

Ingredients

  • 300 g flower
  • 175 g butter ice cold
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 he cold water optional
  • 2 Eggs just the yolks
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 rusks regular, not whole wheat
  • 1 tl cookie spices or a little more if you like
  • 100 g raisins
  • 6 calls preferably a little sour apple
  • Place the flour, 150 g of sugar, a pinch of salt and 1 egg yolk in the bowl of the food processor. Cut the butter into small cubes and add it. Turn this into a firm dough. Don't twist it too long. you don't want the dough to get too warm. Check if it sticks by squeezing it between two fingers. If it is not sticky enough, you can add a little (cold) water.

  • Pour out onto a piece of plastic. Make it together with your hands and roll in the plastic. Place in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to cool thoroughly.

  • Take a 22 cm diameter springform pan, line it with baking paper and grease the sides well with some butter.

  • Preheat the oven to 170˚C

  • Cut the apple into cubes and mix them with the raisins, the remaining 50 g sugar and the cookie spices.

  • Place your dough on a floured surface and roll it out into a thin sheet. Place this in the springform pan and line the bottom and sides well. I must admit that I usually just press it into the shape without rolling it out. I find it easier, but it is a bit less smooth if you do it this way. Handy if your dough is just a bit too crumbly… 🙂

  • Make sure you still have 1/4 of the dough left for the strips at the top!

    When the bottom and sides are covered, take the two rusks and rub them together above the bottom and crumble the last piece with your hands. Crush lumps that are too large. Shake it a bit so that it is evenly distributed over the bottom and a little on the sides.

  • Add the apple mixture and spread evenly over the tin. Roll out the rest of the dough and cut into strips. Place this in a diamond shape over the top. I always add a strip on the side along the edge, but that is not a must. Brush the strips with the other egg yolk and place in the preheated oven.

  • Bake the apple pie for about 1 hour or until golden brown and done. Allow to cool briefly in the tin and run a knife along the sides before opening the springform pan.

    I sometimes put gingerbread cookies on the bottom instead of rusks or sprinkle a layer of custard powder on the bottom to moisten the apples...also very tasty!

    Hi Simone, is there no need to add baking powder?
    Thank you

    Looks delicious! Can you also halve the sugar? I think 200 grams is so much. Do you also have a recipe for apple pie with little to no sugar?

    Hi, I want to make Grandma's apple pie, but what do you use the tablespoon of water for? I can't find it when preparing it.
    Greetings Jozette

      Simone van den BergTo answer

      Hey Jozette, Oh how stupid, yes, I see it now. You use the water to add if the dough is not sticky enough. So it is optional.

    Simone, this indeed seems like an “old-fashioned tasty” recipe! It's funny, my mother didn't like cooking and couldn't cook at all, but her apple pie was unsurpassed!
    Question: I don't see the cookie spices listed under ingredients? How much of that do I need? That's useful to know because I normally only use cinnamon.
    Thank you in advance!

      Hoi Henske
      Oh how funny indeed! My mother couldn't cook or bake.. 🙂 I had indeed missed the cookie spices. That's about a teaspoon!

    How much spice should I put in?

    • Old Dutch apple pie: the tastiest recipe! - Simone's Kitchen (21)

      Simone van den BergTo answer

      Hey Gerard. Ah sorry that was missing. Now added. I usually add 1 tsp or a little more...

    Nice Simone's apple pie, I didn't know about those rusks. I put some almond paste on the base or almond flour and instead of white sugar, I use light brown caster sugar and that gives the crust such a delicious caramel-like taste.
    Invented by chance when I didn't have white caster sugar at home, but I did have the light brown version.
    I also add ginger, cardamom and cinnamon to the apples.

    Thanks for sharing your recipes, always nice to read your blogs👍 Have a nice weekend, luckily it's starting to get cooler here and the oven can be turned on again!

      Simone van den BergTo answer

      That also sounds super delicious Ans and a good idea to add some ginger, cinnamon and cardamom. By the way, it's all in gingerbread spices, so I'm done in one go.. 🙂 Have a nice weekend! Yes, it has cooled down a bit, but I could do with more!
