Amish Dutch Apple Pie Recipe with Oat Crumb Topping
An incredible Amish Dutch Apple Pie Recipe that consists of flaky crust, filled with sweet baked apples and cinnamon filling, and topped with a crisp and buttery oat crumble topping. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to your pie and you have a perfect dessert!
Combine water, lemon juice, sugar, salt,and cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to boil.
Combine water and clear jel to make a paste. Slowly pour into boiling mixture, whisking until thickened.
Remove from heat, add butter and whisk until melted.
Peel, core and chop the apples, then add them to your thickened filling.
Pour into pie shell, and cover with the crumble topping.
For the crumble topping:
Mix brown sugar, flour, and oatmeal. Add butter and crumble with a pastry blender. Or you can melt the butter and mix it into your crumbs, if you prefer.
Sprinkle the crumble over the top of the apples, pat gently.
Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° and continue baking for another 50 -55 minutes. Or until you can tell that the filling is bubbling, and apples are tender.
Cool at least 1/2 hour before slicing.
I bake my pies in the middle or toward the lower half of the oven. This keeps the tops from getting too dark and prevents a soggy bottom crust.If you like more spices in your apple pie, feel free to add nutmeg and cloves. 1/8 tsp. will probably be plenty though, as these spices can quickly overpower the taste.
