Most of our childhood memories revolve around our moms and grandmoms. They would cook so many interesting dishes for us. I become emotional when I remember those days. That is why today, I will talk about Betty Crocker French Apple pie recipes. Whenever I hear the name ‘apple pie,’ I recall the Betty crocker french recipes. I will write up a few recipes for you here. Enjoy!
Betty Crocker French Apple Pie
- Pie crust – single 9’’.
- Apple sliced 7 cups.
- ¾ cups of sugar.
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
- 1 cup of flour.
- ½ cup of brown sugar.
- ½ cup of butter.
- Mix the sugar and cinnamon. Then, toss the sliced apple with the mixture.
- Put the mixture in the crust of the pie pan.
- Mix ingredients for the pie’s streusel until they become smaller in size and top the apples with the streusel.
- Pie pan goes inside a pan for cooking jelly rolls. In the oven, set the temperature at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the ingredients for fifty minutes. Check at regular intervals and if the top of the pie is changing color too quickly, then cover the top part of the pie with an aluminum foil layer.
- When the cooking is done, let the pie cool down. Then cut into a piece of your choice.
Dutch Apple Pie
The crumb topping sets the difference between a Dutch and a usual apple pie. When you make the Dutch pie, you will use butter to make the topping, flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and after you bake it, you will see that the topping becomes golden brown.
- One cup of flour – all-purpose, Gold Medal™.
- Half a teaspoon of salt.
- One-third of a cup and one tablespoon of shortening.
- 3 tablespoons of cold water.
- Eight cups of peeled, cored, and sliced apples.
- Half a cup of sugar – granulated.
- One-fourth of a cup of flour – Gold Medal™, all-purpose.
- One-fourth of a teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
- Juice of lemon one tablespoon.
- tablespoon lemon juice
- Half a cup of Softened butter – unsalted.
- One cup of flour – Gold Medal™, all-purpose.
- Two-thirds of a cup of sugar – brown.
- One tablespoon of sugar – granulated.
- Do not let your screen go dark during the cooking process.
- Take a bowl and mix the flour and salt. Put shortening in the mixture and use a mixer or a spatula to mix counterclockwise. Keep doing it till the particles become smaller like peas.
- Drizzle cold water one tablespoon at a time. Keep tossing with a fork until the flour feels moistened. Make the pastry into a ball shape. Now flatten the pastry on a surface that you have heavily floured to keep from sticking. Wrap with plastic and refrigerate for 45 minutes. If you keep the dough longer in the cold space, you should soften the dough before rolling it.
- Preheat the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Flour the surface lightly. Use a rolling pin to roll the pastry dough into a circle larger than 9 inches plate. Fold it; put it on the plate. Now unfold it within the plate and press down the bottom and the sides firmly but do not stretch the dough. Trim the rim if overhanging. Then roll and fold the pastry evenly.
- Take the bowl and mix the ingredients for filling and place them slowly and evenly inside the pastry. Keep apples toward the center of the pastry.
- Take a bowl and put butter. Break the butter by finger or a mixer. Then put brown sugar and flour and mix with the mixer until you see a crumb. Now take the bowl and pour the content on top of the pastry filling evenly. Sprinkle granulated sugar on top.
- Bake the pie for 55 minutes till the top part becomes deep golden with a touch of brown, and the filling will look bubbly.
- Remove from heat and keep somewhere to cool it off.
