Dutch Apple Pie - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Dutch Apple Pie may be at the top of the list. We recently remade it update the photos and now I know why I it is such a hit. This pie is absolutely wonderful and so easy to throw together. This would be the perfect dessert for any gathering!

Dutch Apple Pie Ingredients Needed:


Lemon juice

White sugar

Brown sugar

All-purpose flour




(9 inch) pie shell either homemade or bought (This one is a bought shell)

Topping Ingredients: 

All-purpose  flour

Brown sugar


Walnuts or pecans

The topping is what really make this pie! The brown sugar, butter, nuts and raisins are so good in this pie and most people that don’t like raisins still love this pie. If you don’t like them, simply leave them out. It won’t hurt the recipe!

You can use any apples you like in this pie, I have used many different varieties and it always comes out delicious. We think this pie is so good it doesn’t even need ice cream! If you love apple recipes you will also love this great Fresh Apple Cake! It’s always a hit too.
