Dutch Apple Pie - A perfect crust piled high with the best apple filling and topped with a crunchy crumb. The perfect fall dessert! | browneyedbaker.com

I can’t think of a better way to welcome fall with open arms than with a piled-high-to-the-sky apple pie. When it comes to apple pie, I’ve always fallen sort of in the middle when choosing between double-crust and Dutch crumb. It’s no secret that I love crust, so the more crust the better (go big or go home!). BUT… I also looooove crumb and streusel toppings. It’s the reason that New York-style crumb cake is one of my favorite things, ever. So far the best Dutch apple pie I have tried comes from a small Italian grocery store in the Pittsburgh suburbs, and while I love it, this one blows it out of the water. The flaky, buttery crust, all of the apples, the creamy filling, and those crumbs! It’s truly a pie lover’s dream… If you make a trip to a local orchard, you’ll definitely want to keep this in the back of your mind while you’re picking apples!

The Weekend Dish: 10/3/2015


Happy Saturday, and Happy October!

September went by in an absolute blink, didn’t it? The weather here sure turned to fall in a hurry, although I’m not complaining about the return of hoodies, cozy sweaters, blankets and hot chocolate. If you’re on the East coast, I hope you stay dry and safe this weekend!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
