An Easy Dutch Apple Pie Recipe with Chai Spices

Yes, it’s March, and yes I am posting an apple pie recipe. I’m basically going against all the laws of the food blogging land. Posting an apple recipe while people are gearing up for Spring Break? I am going way against trend here. Not only is this an apple pie, it is a CHAI apple pie, which makes it all the more cozy. Have you ever had a Chai Tea Latte? Yeah, imagine that mixed with tart apples and a buttery streusel…

You get it now, right? That’s the type of dessert that belongs on your yearly rotation…not just designated to the “pie making months”. We’re rebels over here, but it’s perfect to bake up with Pi Day right around the corner! Make sure to bake extra to share with friends—they will love you forever!

The fantastic detail with this Apple Pie, is that not only is is packed with tart Granny Smith Apples the Chai spices add a little something special, while still keeping it classic!

And did I mention there is crumb pie topping involved? Yeah that.

How to Make this Dutch Apple Pie:

Chai Pie made with corn syrup

The pie goes together in minutes. This is a deceptively easy recipe for sure, especially if you start with a store-bought pie crust!

Karo Corn Syrup

You slice the apples and then just mix your Karo® Corn Syrup, Argo® Corn Starch, spices, vanilla, and a little honey together.

Honey mixture added to sliced apples

The Karo Syrup gives it the perfect texture for coating your apples!

Pour your apples evenly into your pie crust and then whip up a quick streusel topping…

Crumb topping made in a bowl

Spread the stresuel topping all over the apples evenly

And then bake your pie! It’s that easy!

Allow it to cool before slicing, but if you can’t wait I understand that too!

Chai Apple Pie served to eat

So cheers to pie all year long!

If you love apple pie and the cozy flavors of chai tea, you’ll love this easy apple pie recipe! Sliced apples tossed with honey, cinnamon, cloves & cardamom make this homemade Chai Dutch Apple Pie completely irresistible. The crumbly pie topping takes it over the top!


  • 4 large Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 unbaked, deep dish pie crust
  • 1/4 cup Argo® Corn Starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup Karo® Syrup


  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place apple slices in a large boil and sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir to coat and set aside.
  3. Place pie crust in a deep dish pie plate and pinch the edges to form the crust. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl whisk together cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, honey, and corn syrup. Pour this mixture on top of the apples and stir to coat. Pour the apples into the pie crust.
  5. For the topping, combine the butter, flour, cinnamon, and sugar in a medium bowl with a pastry cutter or a fork. Sprinkle this evenly on top of the apples and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the topping is golden and the filling is bubbly.
  6. If necessary, cover the crust with aluminum foil to prevent from getting too brown.

  1. I love chai so of course I had to try this one. Amazing apple pie recipe! So easy to make and I had to fight my family for a piece LOL!

  2. Bake for my family to make it healthier, corn syrup is not healthy, I make sure the foods I buy don’t have it, so why in the world would I put it in my recipes….and don’t say it is not bad for you….corn is a GMO food….

  3. Pie baked for almost an hour. Very disappointed in the streusel topping. Never browned and looks NOTHING like the one on the recipe. It is cooling now, and so have not idea what the overall taste it. Would not try it again.

    1. Scraped the original streusel recipe off of pie. Reworked streusel topping, adding more butter and less flour, with a tad more brown sugar. Placed under broiler for 20 minutes and it worked. I would add a little brown sugar to sweeten the apples more. Husband did like the tartness of the apples in the pie.

  4. I have one in the oven now. It has been baking for almost 45 minutes, but does not seem to be “bubbling” nor getting very brown on top???
