Dutch Apple Streusel Pie with Raisins – Comfort Food Dessert

This Dutch apple streusel pie has a crunchy oat topping and raisins for extra sweetness. It is the ultimate comfort food recipe.

There is nothing quite like the warm aroma of juicy apples and spicy cinnamon and nutmeg with a crunchy streusel topping. 

Apples are plentiful right now, so grab a bunch of them and back up this delicious pie.

Use firm apples such as Granny smith, Gala or my personal favorite McIntosh.  They hold up well in the oven.

The crunchy oat topping adds an extra bit of texture to this delicious apple pie. I love to serve it with a dollop of ice cream.

Even though this pie has a crumble topping, many apple pies have a crust on top.  If you like that type of pie, check out these pie crust decorating ideas for some inspiration.
