Grandma kitchen dutch apple pie
I am happy to introduce my favorite baking recipe Grandma kitchen Dutch apple pie. My baking hobby started with baking Dutch apple pie. There are plenty of apple pie kits for sale, but the best comes from Grandma kitchen. Over the years it was alot of experimenting with dough, best type of apples, spices and raisins. For my Grandma kitchen Dutch apple pie, I am using mixed raisins from Chile. They taste like grapes and are very juicy!
In this apple pie blog, I am taking you from dough to the final result of Grandma kitchen Dutch apple pie! On my website there is a recipe for Vienna dough, only this recipe has other measurements. That’s why it is important to follow this recipe from the beginning until the end. I have a You Tube video with Vienna dough instructions. This video is helpfull when you bake recipes with Vienna dough Europan pie crust.
Vienna dough & almond paste
For this recipe I am using Vienna dough European pie crust. This is cold butter, flour, vanilla extract, sugar and lemonzest. The dough needs to chill overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, this dough is ready for apple pie and many other baking recipes. For this recipe, I am using a scale because it is important to be accurate with the ingredients. That’s why I am advising not to use cups for flour, sugar and butter.
There is another recipe which I am preparing the day before baking. Almond paste is a recipe which needs to be prepared in advance and can stay for a couple days in the refrigerator. When the holidays are coming, I am preparing alot and store almond paste in the freezer until use. When I am using almond paste, it should be on room temperature or cold! For Grandma kitchen Dutch apple pie, I am using almond paste on room temperature. Almond paste is easier to spread over the dough.

Inside Grandma Kitchen Dutch apple pie
For Grandma kitchen Dutch apple pie, I am using a regular springform baking pan. This is a special pan with a click system ring and is easy to remove! When the bottom part is with Vienna dough and almond paste, you attach the ring to the bottom part. The it is easy to cover the ring with Vienna dough. Almond paste will absorb the liquid part of the apples. The bottom part of the applie won’t be wet! For this recipe I am using Jonagold apples, mixed soaked raisins and spices. You can use other apples for this recipe, but not all type of apples. Make sure they are good for apple pies. For this recipe I am using soaked raisins on Calvados, but you can use non alcohol raisins for this recipe.
