Children make you a mother

A casserole dish for Dutch Apple Pie or deep dish apple pie.  I sometimes will just microwave one apple, pared, with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top.  That's the quickie version.

I know, it should be full of pie.  But wait, I'll tell you how to make it, and you can do it yourself.  Right?

Or not.

Either make a pie crust with your fav. recipe, or buy one of those refrigerated ones...line the casserole dish, and maybe stretch the crust to go up the sides most of the way.

Pare and core 6-7 medium apples, preferably something tart.
Sprinkle about 1/4 c flour over them
Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of sugar
Sprinkle enough cinnamon that they all are slightly tan,
Mix them all together and
Put in casserole

In the original bowl...
Mix another 1/4 - 1/2 c of flour with
3 tablespoons of sugar
and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
and 1/4  c of butter.
Cut the flour,sugar,cinnamon mixture in with the butter with two knives or a pastry blender to make mealy texture
pour over top of apples and kind of press it down, so it covers all the apples
bake about 45 min,  in 350 degree oven, until apples are soft and crust top is brown

A squirt of whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream makes this heavenly.

And here's why I'm proud to be a mother...

  1. happy mother's day, great photos and i love the spice names.

  2. Thank you for the recipe! I love to make those deep pie dishes too but rarely keep or use them. When the apples come on in early Fall, I will try it out!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
