{Katie’s Kitchen} Dutch Apple Pie

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard

Apple pies are sooooo good! There’s no doubt about that. This was a fun recipe that I made together with my mom over the weekend and it was gone so fast!

I used about 2 lbs. of Honeycrisp apples from Catoctin Mountain Orchard and they were perfect and delicious!

Start out by pre-heating your oven to 400 degrees. For the pie crust, you can make your own by using your favorite recipe, or if you want a quick option, like I did, you can use the Pillsbury Pie Crust that is found in the cooler section of your local grocery store.

Then, prepare your apples- we used an apple corer slicer, slice the apples thin. Mix together with sugar, flour, cinnamon, and melted butter in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup of raisins to apple mixture (or not if you don’t like them).

Roll out the top of your pie dough and place it over the filling while pinching the edges together and trimming the edges as needed. Brush the top and edges of crust with beaten egg.

Bake your pie at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then turn down the oven to 350 degrees and continue to cook for 45 mins. longer or until golden brown.

While you let your pie cool on a wire rack, let’s make the glaze for the top!

For the glaze:  Mix confectioners sugar, lemon juice and 1-3 tsp milk, until you get a spreading consistency. Then, spread over top.
