German Apple Pie

German Apple Pie recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
This apple pie has the distinction of being not only the most memorable apple pie I have eaten, but also being the easiest apple pie I have ever made. I had never made an apple pie with cream before this one and I was happy to find that the cream made the pie not only richer, but smooth and truly unique as well. I served this pie at room temperature, completely by itself. (It really does not require whipped cream or ice cream.)

* I'm including directions for a gluten free pie crust. If you are not in need of a gluten free crust, I have also made this all-butter pie crust recipe and I loved it.

German Apple Pie
recipe adapted from cbsop.com via The Blond Duck
(printable recipe)

6 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced, I used granny smith apples
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour, I used brown rice flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup heavy cream
(1) prepared pie crust (gluten free pie crust recipe here)

Press the pie crust into the bottom of a deep 9" pie plate. Crimp the edges (if you are feeling fancy) or simply smooth the edges until they are relatively smooth. Whisk together the dry ingredients and sprinkle over the apples in a large mixing bowl. Stir to coat all the pieces and then place the apples into the pie crust. Pour the cream over the apples and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 55-60 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Enjoy!

  1. Ooooohh... the pie looks perfect, Mary! And how could anyone not want to try it with a statement like "not only the most memorable apple pie I have eaten, but also being the easiest apple pie I have ever made"

  2. This sounds really scrumptious---I don't think I've ever seen an apple pie done quite like it, and the cream poured over everything sounds especially good to me.

  7. This recipe is good, but it left the pastry on the bottom a bit soggy, and the pastry rim was burnt. Next time I will cover the pastry rim with foil. Chef John's apple pie recipe is similar, only instead of cream he adds butter, and he uses both brown and white sugar. It makes a caramel sauce around the apples.

    1. Thanks for mentioning the foil! I forgot to include that in the recipe, Kelly. I always wrap my pies with foil, sorry about that. I'll have to try it with brown sugar as well next time. It sounds delicious!

  9. My grandma used to make a similar pie, she called it a "Dutch" apple pie. She always said the secret to making it was slicing apples really thin, and good cream! Of course the cream she used was good as it came straight from their dairy cow! Good memories!

  10. I grew up with this scrumpious pie.. yes it is quite good.. very filling.. dense sort of pie.. the rice flour is tasty..I tried using plain greek yogurt.. it was ok..I used water to extend to a liquid state.. added a tablespoon of brown sugar to cut the tartness..

  14. Looks delicious! Does the pie need to be refrigerated once baked? Or can it be left at room temp? Thanks!

    1. I left ours at room temp for a while before serving and then refrigerated the leftovers.

  15. Made this yesterday and it was so yummy. Also so easy to make too. Especially with a premade crust. I used soy milk since I didn't have cream.

  19. My great aunt made us one of these every Sunday for years... For the first year or so, none of us would eat it, but then one day, we decided to heat it up and eat it. It was absolutely the best pie, and we enjoyed them every Sunday until she was no longer able to make them. Thank you for sharing this recipe, she had it memorized, and I've never been able to find it.

  23. What is considered heavy cream?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Heavy cream, also known as whipping cream, is the thick creamy layer skimmed off milk and sold separately. It is sold in the dairy section of most grocery stores.

  41. Sounds heavenly. Could I substitute Splenda for the sugar to save on some calories?

    1. I don't know any reason why not, Susan. I've never cooked or baked with Splenda though. If you try it, let me know how it works!
