Gluten Free Dutch Apple Pie
Apple Pie is truly one of my first loves. I love it with ice cream as dessert, and with coffee for breakfast; preferably in that order. What makes this gluten free pie a “Dutch” apple pie is that streusel topping! It’s not only really delicious but also EASY. There’s only one gluten free pie crust to roll out and the gluten free streusel topping is done is moments!
I have a lot to say about making pie crust and you can read all the details on our Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe page. However; my biggest tips is to not over work the pie crust! An over worked pie crust is a tough pie crust, and we don’t want that. Pies don’t have to “look” perfect to taste amazing, in fact, often that perfect looking pie has a crust that is over worked and, you guessed it tough! So, take it easy on your pie crust 😊.
How about that streusel topping? It tastes like an oatmeal cookie and is so easy to make. Mixed with the sweet, cinnamon-y apples and buttery, flakey crust, it’s a pretty fantastic combo. Yes, homemade pies take work but they are filled with so much love and something you can be proud of making. Enjoy this Gluten Free Dutch Apple Pie 🥧 Josie
1 recipe Josie’s Best GF Pie Crust Recipe
For the Apples:
6-8 firm, tart, apples (we used granny smith)
1 cup white sugar(or coconut)
1 TBS cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
For the gluten free streusel topping:
1 cup of gluten-free old fashion oats
1/2 cup Josie’s Best GF Muffin & More Mix
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup very cold finely chopped or grated butter (dairy free works too!)
Make and roll out the pie crust. Place in the bottom of a deep dish pie pan. Let it rest and cool in the fridge while you make the apples.
Preheat your oven to 350F
Core and slice the apples into even pieces and toss with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Let this mixture sit while you make the topping.
Combine all streusel topping ingredients until they resemble and slightly “sandy” texture. Some bigger chunks of butter are fine!
Remove the prepared pie crust from the fridge and scoop the apples into it using a slotted spoon (leaving the extra juices in the bowl). Your pie should be heaping with apples!
Sprinkle the streusel topping evening over the top of the apples and then gently pat it down.
Bake your pie for about 40 mins. until the crust is slightly browned and the juice from the apples are visibly bubbling. Allow your pie to cool for at least 1 hour and enjoy!
