Dutch apple pie recipes can have a few different variations; some use a deep-dish pie plate, and others are topped with a lattice-style crust. Our recipe includes heavy cream in the filling, and a deliciously crumbly streusel topping for rich, decadent slices.

  • For streusel, in a large bowl combine the 1 1/2 cups flour, the brown sugar, salt, and 1/2 tsp. of the cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts.

  • For filling, in an extra-large bowl combine granulated sugar, the 2 Tbsp. flour, and the remaining 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Add apples; toss to coat. Transfer to the pastry-lined pie plate. Carefully drizzle with cream. Mound streusel over filling, patting down and completely covering filling.

  • Place a foil-lined baking sheet on rack below pie. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Bake 50 to 60 minutes more or until filling is bubbly. Cover pie loosely with foil after 30 minutes of baking. Cool on a wire rack.
