Going Dutch

Dutch Apple Pie:

For the pie:

18 oz. prepared pie dough
3 lbs. apples
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup raisins
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. lemon juice

For the streusel topping:

1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, chilled
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. allspice
pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Whipped cream to serve

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 inch springform pan. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie dough and line the prepared pan. The dough needs to run all the way up the sides of the pan. Trim the dough by folding the excess over the rim of the pan and using the rolling pin to cut the excess. Refrigerate while preparing the apples.

Peel, core, and dice the apples. In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, raisins, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Mix well, and set aside.

In a food processor, combine all the streusel ingredients except the walnuts. Process to form coarse crumbs. Add the walnuts and then pulse several times to combine.

Transfer the apple mixture to the pie crust. Sprinkle the streusel over the apples. Cover the pie with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream to serve.
