The Dutch style apple pie is so delicious, considering how easy it is to make. The crumbly oil crust is basically foolproof.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2/3 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 6-7 Medium apples (mix it up, e.g. Granny Smith, Golden Delicious and Jonagold)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup butter


Step 1
Mix first three dry ingredients: flour, sugar salt
Step 2
Add vegetable oil and milk to dry mixture. Work together until mixture resembles damp coarse sand or tiny pebbles. Reserve one cup of mixture for the top crust.
Step 3
Place remaining dough mixture into pie plate and press to form crust on the sides first, then do the same to form bottom crust. Fill any holes with crumbs and press firmly.
Apple Filling
Step 4
Core, peel apples and slice in to hearty chunks or slices. Mix apples with remaining dry ingredients: flour, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mound apples in the dough-lined pie plate. No need to press down apples; the crumb topping will fill up the gaps. Dot with butter
Pie Assembly
Step 5
Add the reserved pie crumble (crust) to top the pie. Add one tablespoon at a time covering pie evenly. Bake at 400 degrees F for 50 minutes, apple filling will bubble.
