Dutch Apple Pie

October 07, 2016

The classic apple pie with a crunchy top and drizzled with warm caramel..

First up, thank you everyone who has participated so far in my 2016 Reader's Survey! I have received so many responses and am looking forward to going through each of them. It is going to help me quite a bit for future posts and helping my readers get the most from Table for Seven.

If you haven't taken the survey and are able:  just click here  It's just a few questions and won't take you more than 5 minutes..promise!

Enough of that..we have pie today.

This is one my husband's most favorite of them all desserts. Next to brownies, of course.  I usually make some type of apple pie each fall. We take the kids apple picking and have loads of apples. So, naturally, we make pie with them.

It's such a classic and is a bit different from your average apple pie. We start out with a pastry pie
crust, (your favorite homemade recipe or frozen will work too), pile on our thick, sugary, apple-ly filling and finally, it's top with a nice, crunchy, crumb topping.  Drizzling your pie with some caramel sauce is optional, but, highly recommended.  Of course, whipped cream and vanilla ice cream are perfect optional toppings too.

 Simple, delicious and just right for fall!
