Taste-Test Tuesday Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel


I used a recipe from AllRecipes to make this apple pie.


  • 1 (9 inch) pie shell
  • 5 cups apples – peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (I left this out because I didn’t have any)
  • 1/2 cup butter


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Fit pastry shell into pie pan and place in freezer.
  2. To Make Apple Filling: Place apples in a large bowl. In a separate bowl combine 2 tablespoons flour, white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Mix well, then add to apples. Toss until apples are evenly coated.
  3. Remove pie shell from freezer. Place apple mixture in pie shell and dot with 2 tablespoons butter or margarine. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil lightly on top of filling, but do not seal.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. (I did 15 minutes and I’d probably up it to even 20. Some of the apples were still too crisp at the end for me.)
  5. While filling is baking, make Streusel Topping: In a medium bowl combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, oats, and lemon peel. Mix thoroughly, then cut in 1/2 cup butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly. Remove filling from oven and sprinkle streusel on top.
  6. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake an additional 30 to 35 minutes, until streusel is browned and apples are tender. Cover loosely with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning. (I actually baked it for 35 minutes with the aluminum foil on and another 15 minutes with it off to get a nice brown on top.)

My notes:

So some of my oatmeal was still a little hard for my liking along with a few of the apples. Overall, though, I really liked this pie. Dutch Apple is my favorite. I was just going through the All Recipes custom versions of the recipe and some people added caramel to it. YUM!
