The Difference between 2 Crust Apple Pie and Apple Crumble Pie

An all American apple pie has a top and bottom crust. Dutch Apple Pie has a crumble top and only a bottom flaky pie crust. Dutch Apple Pie has a buttery crumble crust on top of the apple filling.

Traditional Dutch Apple Pie is from the Netherlands or Germany and has a lattice pie crust on top. But over the years the Apple Pie with a crumble topping is sometimes referred to as Dutch apple pie.
