Ingredients

Directions

  • Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with 18-inch-wide foil, extending the foil up over the edges of the pan; set aside. For dough: In a large bowl, stir together the 2-1/4 cups flour and the salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cold water over part of the flour mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Using your fingers, gently knead the dough just until a ball forms.

  • Preheat oven to 375F. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 19x13-inch rectangle. Wrap it around the rolling pin; unroll it into the prepared baking pan. Ease dough into the pan and up the sides, being careful not to stretch it. Trim dough to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pan. Fold dough edge over and flute as desired.

Blogger Variation by Robyn Stone of Add A Pinch

For Robyn's version of this Dutch apple pie, substitute 1/2 cup packed brown sugar for the 2/3 cup granulated sugar that is combined with the sliced apples. When the easy apple pie filling is placed in the crust, drizzle with 1/2 cup homemade caramel sauce or purchased caramel ice cream topping. For the crumble topping, substitute 1 cup pretzel pieces for the oats.

I have not made this yet but I am wondering if I can make this and before baking it freeze it so that all I have to do is bake it on Thanksgiving or Christmas. As a 100% NSC Disabled Veteran and having a husband and children who are always looking for the goodies to each before the holidays that would be a great thing to make a month or two in advance and then cook it on the day of the holiday.

My husband and I really liked this dessert, he's a big apple pie fan. I hate using the rolling pin so I just tore the dough into pieces, placed them across the prepared pan and pressed it all out. You don't need to bring the dough up over the edge of the pan. The apples I used were big so I ended up with almost 12 cups of sliced apples but it worked out perfectly, they sink down while baking. I plan to make this for work very soon and I guarantee there will be requests for the recipe. It makes a lot so there is plenty to share. Enjoy!

I haven't tried this yet, but I will. It looks like a great recipe. But as an experienced cook, i would suggest that when making the crumb topping, cut the butter into everything except the oats, and then stir in the oats. It's much easier that way!

We loved it . I did use some apples but then I added some cranberries and blue berries. I used a 9 X 13 PAN. It took the same amount of time to cook.

Love the flavors but my slices were soft and the topping was (not sure of right right to use here) more moist than I expected. I took the slices out of the oven when tender, let cool completely before covering (made Tuesday for yesterday). When we went to cut it, I discovered the apples were close to being mushy. What could I have done wrong? I guess I expected the topping to be drier, similar to a streusel one. Also, what is the reason the pan was to be lined in foil? Thank you.
