Dutch apple pie (appeltaart or appelgebak) recipes are distinct in that they typically call for flavourings such as cinnamon and lemon juice to be added.
This delicious caramelised apple dessert is better known in France as a Tarte Ppaysanne aux Pommes Caramélisées or Peasant Tart. It is very similar to a claflouti and is so inexpensive, quick and easy to make. Big dollops of fresh whipped cream spooned on top and you are good to go.
Back in the day we grew up with McDonald’s making deep-fried apple pies, and you know that their current offering of a baked apple pie just isn’t the same. However, the old school now-vanished McDonald’s traditional hot apple pie can be made at home with our copycat recipe. Enjoy !
