If you’re anything like me, you love pie. It’s a staple dessert in our home. This recipe for French Apple Pie is awesome—a super easy one crust pie finished off with a yummy, crumbly top.

Wait. Isn’t apple pie with the crumbly top called Dutch Apple pie? Maybe. Some people use Dutch and French interchangeably to describe this kind of pie. Even in my research, there wasn’t a real clarification to what the determining factor is that makes a modern apple pie French or Dutch. All I know is, regardless of what you call it, it’s tasty.
French Apple Pie

French Apple Pie (or Dutch Apple or Whatever Apple)

Ingredients:

4 cups sliced apples
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. butter
unbaked pie shell – 9″

Method:

Place apples in the unbaked pie shell. Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over apples. Dot with butter.

Topping

1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour

Combine topping ingredients with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake pie at 450 for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for 45 minutes longer. (If you’re worried about the edges of the crust burning, use a pie shield – this one is adjustable and will fit any pie you make.)

  • Your French Apple Pie recipe is almost identical to mine! And, yes indeedy-doo, I could LIVE on it! Unfortunately, not right now though as both hubby and I are cutting the sugar stuff down to the bone because . . . well, over winter we managed to put too much fat on our bones! So I'll just sit here and salivate over your photos for a while. Mmmmm-mm!
