Dutch Apple Pie Recipe using Dehydrated Apples From your Food Storage

Original Article

I was very happy to discover just how easy it is to use dehydrated apples in apple pies. In fact, not only are they easy…they are DELICIOUS! I can honestly say I have NEVER gone back to peeling, coring, and slicing apples for a delicious apple pie. Making an apple pie from dehydrated apples saves time (takes only 5 minutes to get the apples ready and most of that time is just the apples sitting in boiling water), makes a smaller mess, and is just as delicious. HOORAY!! Once again food storage makes life easier (and just as delicious)! So give it a try at your Thanksgiving Feast…no one will know you did anything different.


One pre-made pie crust (you can make your own or I like those pilsbury ones that aren’t in a pie crust)

2 cups dried apples firmly packed
2 cups boiling water.
Pour over apples and let set for at least 5 minutes.
Mix together:
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp. Flour
½ tsp. Cinnamon
Add to the apple mix and continue cooking until thick.
Stir constantly to prevent scorching.
Pour mixture into pie shell and dot with 1 tbsp. Butter

1/3 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup butter
Cut in till crumbly. Sprinkle over the apple mixture and place in 350ºF oven for 55 minutes.
