  • 1 recipe unbaked Light & Flaky Pie Crust or unbaked gluten-free pie crust of choice
  • 6 cups Granny Smith apples , peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar , packed
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch/flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts , pecans or sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch/flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil , butter or oil of choice


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Line a 9-inch pie pan with crust. Flute the edges. Use your fingers to repair any tears in the crust, if needed.
  • To make the filling, place sliced apples, lemon juice, sugars, tapioca starch/flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl and mix together until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour filling into unbaked crust and spread it around until evenly distributed.
  • To make the streusel topping, place walnuts, brown sugar, rice flour, tapioca starch/flour, and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl and mix together until thoroughly combined. Add coconut oil and mix until evenly distributed. Topping should be crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apple filling.
  • Loosely cover the pie with aluminum foil to prevent the top from browning too quickly. Put pie on a baking sheet. Place in preheated oven and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until the filling bubbles, apples are fork-tender and the crust is cooked. Remove foil after 25 minutes to allow the top to brown.
  • Take the pie from the oven and let cool before slicing.

    I actually halved this recipe and made it in four tart pans. I froze two for later and my husband and I shared the other two. It was absolutely delicious! And I have something in the freezer to look forward to.

    Could you make a Dutch apple pie with GF Graham cracker crusts

      Hi Deb,
      Yes, I think that would work just fine. I suggest refrigerating the crust so that it goes in chilled and that way takes a little longer to bake, because this pie needs a bit longer than some recipes that use graham cracker crumbs. In other words, I’d take care to not burn the crust. You may also need to cover the edges of the crust if they begin to get too brown. Let us know how it goes!
