Sweet and Delicious Dutch Apple Pie

Dutch apple pie differs from apple crisp or apple pie by using cornflour in the apple filling. The topping is not a rolled pastry and the pie can be made with a flat pastry bottom or just the topping. I made this one without the base to conserve calories. The cornstarch (cornflour in the UK) adds to the texture of the apples and makes them puffy.

For this recipe I used the apples I had on hand which were BC grown Gala. For a more tart version use granny smith or a large cooking apple. Red or golden delicious apples do not work so well because of the moisture content. The recipe is best using fresh apples but you can also use apples which have been pre-cut and frozen. Apple sauce or apple pie filling does not work so well.

Cook Time at 375c

  • Prep time: 15 min
  • Cook time: 50 min
  • Ready in: 1 hour 5 min
  • Yields: 6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4-6 Apples
  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1 cup Rice or Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 or 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp Dark Brown Sugar., Depending on sweeteness preference and apples chosen
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch (corn flour in UK)
  • wheat and gluten free pastry, optional for base

Method

  1. If using Pastry grease a pie dish and roll pastry to fit bottom and sides. Prick with fork in several places. This base is optional. Pre-heat oven to 375F 195c
  2. Cut and peel apples. Place them in water with 1 x tsp lemon juice and cover untill you are ready to use them. This prevents apples turning brown.
  3. Place the flours, butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and crumble together with your fingers.. Mixture will resemble chunky breadcrumbs.
  4. Place the apples on top of pastry shell (if using) or directty into the dish. Sprinkle with cornflour, 2 tspb sugar and cinnamon
  5. Please in pre-heated oven and bake for 50 mins. Serve hot or cold. Delicious alone, with cream or ice-cream or Greek Yogurt.

      Thanks teaches12345 - this is also good for those watching the calories because of the lesser amount of crust. Not completely calorie free though sadly:-)

      Depends on how thick the plastic is. I had the iron on high and coetnud to 20 slowly each time. test it out. You may need more or less time. Let it cool some before you pull the paper off. if the paper isn't waxed enough (aspect of the paper), the paper will stick to the plastic and have to be torn off. My paper roll came from Home Depot $9
