Nana's Dutch Apple Pie - CopyThis is my all time favorite pie.  I could eat the whole thing myself thus the name, Nana’s Dutch Apple Pie. The apples along with raisins and walnuts make this just a perfect dessert.

4 medium apples, cored, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins
1 (9 inch) pie shell either homemade or bought (This one is a bought shell)
 1/2 cup all-purpose  flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces      
1/2 cup walnuts
Place apples in a bowl along with lemon juice and toss to coat.  Add brown and white sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well with spoon.  Place apples in pie shell.  Add raisins on top of the apples.  In the same bowl, mix ingredients for the topping except for the butter and spread over the apples. Cut up the butter over the topping.  Cook in preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees and cook for 45 more minutes.  Enjoy!

  1. Consider soaking the raisins in rum overnight or more.

    this sounds similar to a french apple pie I had years ago only it had a white icing on top.

  3. I made this for my husband and me today, and it is delicious!

    this sounds and looks delicious. I have always put raisins in my apple pie. I use the white (or golden) raisins and no one even knows there in there. Cartha

  5. Hmmm.. never thought of putting raisins in my dutch apple pie before, sounds good. If I have time this week to make this I will letcha know what I thought.
    Thanks to Balisha for asking all the questions I had. 🙂

  6. With fall in the air it is time to make some delicious apple pie. I love your idea to add the raisins. Sounds like a winner!

  7. Margaret Cloud says:

    Another great recipe, I would have to leave out the walnuts. This is the only nut they don’t care fore, their loss.

  8. Now that is recipe I can use. It is hard to find a lot of variety when it comes to apple pie recipes but this one sounds perfect. I love raisins and walnuts too. Thanks!

  9. Hi Balisha, I cut the pieces in chunks kind of like pineapple chunks that you buy in a can and I used red apples. I don’t know exactly what kind they were but I have used all kinds in this pie. I don’t think it matters. Thanks for your questions and good luck. Let me know how you like it!

  10. Me again…You’d think that I never made an apple pie…what kind of apples did you use?

  11. Do you chop your apples…or slice them? Balisha

  12. Oh Judy, my mouth is watering. You’ve given me an idea for our Dec. 5th family dinner. Thanks…Balisha
