Best non-nut dutch apple pie besides Pie N Burger

I hear the pieces are small and expensive at Pie N Burger.

Well, now, that won't do at all! A good slice of apple pie should thump on the table!

So, where can I get dutch apple pie-with the yummy crumbly topping- that "whomps" properly and tastes good- WITHOUT NUTS?

Also, a good milkshake on the side is necessary.

And perhaps caramel sauce!

  1. Okay, although I've only been to Pie N Burger once, one thing that I remember was that the piece of pie was *huge*. I tried a slice of the fresh strawberry pie, and it was the largest slice of pie that I've had anywhere.

    The only other place that comes to mind are the chains that serve pies.

    Long Beach may be too far for you, but recently a lot of people have been talking about the really good pies at Bake & Broil. I am planning to check it out down the line. I do not know for sure if they have apple, though. Apparently, they change what they offer daily.

    1. My favorite is at Marie Callendar's of all places, but they call it French Apple for some reason. Not sure about the nuts...

        The crumbly topping is brown-sugar laden and more than ample at MC's; plus, the apples are perfectly caramelized.

        Another contender is also Costco's.

      2. It's been a while, but I think the Filing Station in Orange ( ) does a pretty good version, with caramel on top, f I recall correctly. Their pies are bigger than the usual 8 inches (10 or 12, maybe), so a slice should thump pretty well.

          yeah, and covered with walnuts!

            Ops. Sorry about that. Like I said, it's been a while since I've had a slice.

        2. I think that Baker's Square tops Costco and Marie Calendars for a most of the time very good apple pie. The only thing hat I don't particularly cae for is that they put these big sugar cristals on top.
