Do You Enjoy Apple Pie?

Over the years, I’ve prepared quite a few of them, and I’ve discovered that there are a few recipes that are reliable no matter what the dish is.

Here is one of them.

This is by no means an inexpensive dish; rather, it is more of a recipe for when you want to entertain someone or celebrate a special occasion.

Dough

To prepare Dutch apple pie dough, you will need two cups of make-your-own flour, one cup of normal flour, eight ounces of cold butter cut into little cubes, one cup of sugar, and two eggs.

Topping

  • 1 can Ardmona apple pie (depending on the size of your pie pan, you can use a small or large can)
  • 3 green Granny Smith apples, diced
  • 1 cup mixed fruit
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 can chopped pineapple (optional)

Method

After adding the cold butter to the components for the dough, knead everything together until a ball is formed. I used to use a Kenwood kitchen mixer, which was really basic, and when I put everything in it, the dough would create a big ball. Currently, I have a smaller mixer, so I typically perform the kneading by hand to aid.

Divide the dough into two equal halves: Hold one in your palm and divide it into two more pieces, with one of the new sections being somewhat bigger than the other one. At the conclusion of the process, you will have two small balls in addition to two huge ones. To put it another way, one medium-sized ball and one little ball should be used for each cake. The larger ball is the bottom of the cake and the smaller ball is the filling.

Oil the two pie pans and fill them with huge balls of dough; if you only make two, the dough will be squeezed into the pans by hand. If you wish to make a larger quantity of this recipe, divide the dough into portions, place each portion between two sheets of cling film, and wrap them up. This will result in a more compact ball of dough.

Combine all the ingredients for the filling and spread them evenly over the two pie shells; take the dough from the two smaller balls and roll it into strips to construct either a cross-woven lid or a full lid. It is up to you to decide.

Bake for 30-45 minutes in an oven that has been warmed to 180 degrees; check after 30 minutes to see if further time is required. After the filling has been poured in and the lids have been made, bake the pies.

You can serve this dish hot or cold with cream, ice cream, pudding, or all three at the same time. This cake holds up quite nicely in the freezer.

For celebrations like as Christmas, New Year’s, and birthdays, it is standard practice to consume Dutch apple pie.
