The hallmark of Dutch apple pie is its creamy apple filling, but we didn’t rely on the traditional cream to achieve it. Instead we added melted vanilla ice cream to the apple filling for extra creaminess and a rich vanilla flavor that nicely complements apple pie.
To make the mustard dressing, place the mustard, vinegar, juice, oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine. Arrange the the celeriac, celery, leaves and apple on plates and spoon over the dressing.
Pie does not get better than this. Reducing and concentrating the juices of the apples make it necessary to use only about half the usual amount of thickener, resulting in a purer apple flavor, a juicy filling, and a crisp bottom crust. Make apple pie in the fall, at the height of the apple season, or whenever you have the yearning.
This dish tastes like health and summer.
