Classic Appeltaart Recipe

Classic Appeltaart Recipe

Appeltaart is a traditional Dutch apple pie that is very often accompanied by a cup of hot coffee.

Although it is essentially the same as most apple pies, Dutch appeltaart differs from the classic American apple pie in many ways: it is baked in a spring-form pan, making it deeper; it is drier on the interior. 

It is full of big chunks of apple, currants, and raisins, and it is full of speculoos spices such as cinnamon, lemon juice, and other warm spices.
