Well played.  Dutch apple pie is much better than "regular".

I know how to make the special "butter", I saw the process of making the special "brownies" at a house party I once attended (I did not partake!).  I'm sure it could also be used for pies.  Wink

It's the delicious crumbly topping, instead of the regular pie dough.

You can make the pie with your favorite pie dough (add a tablespoon of Vodka to make the crust flakier), or you can simply smoosh down the same "topping" and it will form a crust.  This is a much faster way....and akin to making cheesecake crust, which is basically crushed graham crackers, butter and brown sugar.

Here's a really simple recipe.

Dutch Apple Pie Recipe
 
Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min.Yield: 6-8 Servings
 
•2 cups all-purpose flour
•1 cup packed brown sugar
•1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
•3/4 cup butter, melted


FILLING:

•2/3 cup sugar
•3 tablespoons cornstarch
•1-1/4 cups cold water
•3 cups diced peeled tart apples
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions
In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats and butter; set aside 1 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 9-in. pie plate; set aside.

For filling, combine the sugar, cornstarch and water in a large saucepan until smooth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in apples and vanilla.

Pour into crust; top with reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.



You can use the same crust, put it in a pie pan/cassorle dish even, and then layer it with fresh fruit (lightly mixed with sugar to taste) and then top it with gobs of the topping. 

I usually do NOT melt my butter, but, use cold butter, then just mix it all in with my hands....leaving it really crumbly.  Yum.

I knew Vodka could make other things flakier, but I didn't know its powers extended to pie crusts.  Wink

I'm no baker, but I want to eat this exact pie right now.  Unfortunately, I developed some sort of allergy to the skins of fruit.  Whereas I used to eat an apple every day, now it just makes my throat itchy, lips and tongue puff up, etc.  Same problem with almost every seasonal fruit I love: peaches, plums, cherries, pears, pineapples, you name it.  I can only eat such fruits if they are canned, in pies, or otherwise prepared.  It's a bad problem to have.  Fruits are 0 points on the Weight Watchers system, so I can eat as many as I want, but that doesn't extend to pies.   Cry

That sounds like the worst kind of torment to be faced with on earth. I usually eat 3-4 fruits a day.  If I had to forgo those, my priest would be doing some serious suicide counseling...

I agree.  Many of them are now abandoned by the Roman Catholic Church and instead of being empty would be wonderfully converted to an Orthodox Church.

As for the pews, I generally like pews, but that would be absolutely gorgeous wide open. Maybe they can be put to good use as kindling at the mandatory ethnic food festival?  police

"Too bad about the pews". No, given recent precedents they could be taken out and used to fuel street barbecues or broken up and donated to the poor for winter fuel. Material does not have to be wasted but often may be recycled, surely? But pews in Orthodox churches, never.

Since there are trees there, it's probably a flooded area. If the waters have different density due to temperature or from having different chemicals in it, then the river still flows like marine currents do. I guess. Smiley

Serious stuff: the 69th anniversary of Warsaw Uprising in which were murdered more than 150,000 civilians, including Orthodox priests and believers (also children from the Orthodox orphanage) from my parish; my church is in the disctrict that my family and ancestors (certainly from mother's side, some of them were fighting too) and I come from. It also suffered the most from all parts of Warsaw.

So, please pray for all the victims...
