MY CUPCAKE NOTEBOOK

Apple Pie

Anna CarreraComment

Hello everyone!

{Spanish Here}

I have another classic for you today. If you think about it, it is curious that I have never published an apple pie recipe. And I love them! So far, you can find Caramelized Apple Tartlets, Apple and Cinnamon Muffins and Apple Crumble recipes on the blog.

I must confess that, if I could, I would eat a slice of this apple pie every day. The sweetness of the apple combined with the cinnamon is a flavor that will never tire me. Just smelling it makes me happy.

Bake one when the cold starts to seep inside your home. Heat it up a little bit, and have a nice cup of tea. I can promise you that this will fix a bad day.

Apple Pie

 

Pie crust ingredients

  • 300g flour

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 60mL olive oil

  • 120g butter (cold)

  • 80ml water (very cold)

Directions

  • In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Add olive oil slowly while stirring (manually).

  • Slice the cold butter, add it to the mix and blend. Bear in mind that there need to be small portions of butter in the dough.

  • Add water little by little, stirring until the dough forms a ball.

  • Roll the ball, fold in three parts (like you would do with a letter) and afterwards fold into two more. Wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for an hour.

 

 

 

  • When the hour has past, roll the dough again into a circle slightly bigger than the pan. Line the pan with the dough and prick with a fork. You can decorate the perimeter of the pie crust however you want to. Refrigerate again for 30 minutes.

 

Filling ingredients:

  • 6 medium-sized apples

  • 170g brown sugar

  • 15g flour

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 dash of nutmeg

  • 1 dash of salt

Preparación:

  • Preheat the oven at 180ºC (356ºF).

  • Peel and core the apples. Slice them in half a centimeter-thick pieces.

  • Mix all the ingredients together and stir until everything is well incorporated.

 

 

 

  • Pour the mixture into the pie crust lined pie pan and cover it with the other dough circle. Make a hole in the center of the pie to allow the steam to come out while baking.

  • Paint the dough with a mixture of egg and water.

 

  • Bake for 60 minutes, up until the pie crust is golden. 

I hope you enjoy it!
