Birthday Worthy Dutch Apple Pie Recipe

Posted By: Leah
Happy Birthday to my Mom!

It's Gav's first week of school, I'll be in California next weekend, and this past weekend BF was out of town at a car show. So we celebrated my mom's bday a couple weeks back, but that's okay! It's always fun to celebrate the entire week month of your birthday, and that's just what we are doing for my mom!

I'm not 100% how the Dutch Apple Pie subject was brought up for my mom's birthday dessert (instead of cake, cupcakes, ice cream cake, etc). And honestly, I had no clue what a dutch apple pie was. But thanks to google I got the recipe and bf and I made my mom dutch apple pie for her birthday dinner celebration.

A special shout-out to BF for the photography skills in this post. He JUST got a new camera (you're welcome) for his birthday at the first part of August and these photos are all shot and edited by him.

Also, I must note that I am aware that I look ROUGH in these photos. I'm talking Rough with a capital R. It was probably 8am and I had rolled out of bed, not brushed my hair, let alone thought about make-up or anything else. So if you ever wondered if I really look all cute and pin-uppy all the time. The answer is NO. But this was an especially un-flattering morning. I thought BF was just messing with his camera, not that we'd ever actually be using the pics. 

The pie came out so well I just had to post the recipe for all of you in honor of my mom's actual birthday day!

"One of the best dutch apple pies you'll eat!"


    • 1 your favorite homemade pie crusts or 1 ready-made pie crusts *I used deep dish.
    • 5 1/2 cups peeled cored sliced cooking apples *I used 7 cups, which fit in the deep dish well.
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar *I used 1/4 cup
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 3 tablespoons flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


    • 3/4 cup flour
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1/3 cup butter or 1/3 cup margarine, room temperature *I melted it


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Fit pie crust into pie plate.
  3. In a large bowl, mix sliced apples, lemon juice, both sugars,flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Pile into crust.
  5. Prepare topping:.
  6. In a medium bowl, with a pastry blender or a fork, mix flour, both sugars, and butter until coarsely crumbled.
  7. Sprinkle evenly over apples.
  8. Bake at 375°F for 50 minutes. I cooked for *40 min and took out because the topping was starting to get dark.

...and of course we were too excited  hungry to take any photos of the finished pie, except on our phones.
But yay for IG!

And Happy Birthday to my Mom!
My mom had given BF grill gloves for his bday. They also make good pot holders lol!

My mom loves cheddar cheese with her apple pie. I think it's gross together, so this was her plate!


  1. The pie looks delicious! The cheese thing is weird. I'll have to tell my husband about it because he LOVES cheese. Haha.

  2. Stop it you ho, you look fabulous.

    Also I love how Susie Homemaker you are - that pie looks delicious and your kitchen reminds me of my grandmother's so I automatically just want to pull up a chair and bake in it.

    Cheddar cheese? Ewwww.

  3. Happy happy birthday to your Mom!
    You look absolutely adorable by the way!
    And I love apple pie! But I have never tried it with cheese. :)

  4. Holy moly I love this! I am so making it for my hubby's football party. My house will smell amazing with that cooking:)
