Deep Dish Dutch Apple Pie with Filo Dough Crust

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I've had a box of Filo Dough in the freezer for some time and wanted it gone before burn set in. I had heard of this method but never did it so off we went. I did about 6 layers of Filo in the deep dish and trimmed off the edges. I also cheated and used canned apples to speed up the process. All in all an excellent way to use up that left over Filo dough.

 

raw everything

 

streusel topping

 

after 35 minutes

 

added topping

 

after another 15 minutes.....oh yeah

 

Filling:
6      large apples, peeled and sliced (McIntosh, Granny Smith) need 6 cups
1 2/3 cups sour cream
1       cup sugar
1       large egg
1/3   cup all purpose flour
2      tsp vanilla extract
1      tsp salt

Streusel:
1    cup chopped walnuts
½   cup all purpose flour
1    stick softened butter
1/3 cup each of sugar and packed brown sugar
1    tbl cinnamon


Combine all filling ingredients in a large bowl. Combine all streusel ingredients together in another bowl until crumbly. Add the filling. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 35 minutes more. Remove pie from oven, mash filling down lightly with fork. Sprinkle streusel over the top and bake for 15 minutes more. Let the pie cool completely on a rack.

That looks very, very good with the streusel topping! Was the 6 layers of filo enough?  I'm gonna hang around & hope for a sliced pic!  :32:

 Dave.....outside edges stayed nice and crispy....inside layers with the filing on top was more like regular pie dough

Yes, 6 layers seemed plenty...but, see no reason why more wouldn't work either

That looks really good Chef, so would the filling be considered more of a French apple pie, in a custard?

 

For years I used Pillsbury for my crusts, My Mom made great crusts. Then I showed her Pillsbury and she quit making her own..... My bad!

 

Great idea Chef. Whenever I have some philo, I make Pot-Pies.

HI Foam.....something about that sour cream in there gives it a unique taste. Pot pies are delish....my sister told that's what she does with leftover Filo.....must try that as well. Regards....Willie
