I’m back — Sort of! I’m busy changing the lay out (again), so don’t mind the mess!
A few weeks ago I made a delicious apple pie, which I had to share! got the recipe from one of my mothers cooking-books, but I changed some things here and there.
For the dough
- 250 grams flour
- 150 grams butter
- 80 grams sugar
- 3 eggs
I used 1 egg instead of 2. 2 eggs make the dough very wet, yet one egg tends to make the dough a bit dry once it’s finished and out of the oven.
- Vanilla sugar for taste
- A little bit of salt
For the filling
- 8 apples (It’s too much. 6 will do too)
- Raisins (As much as you want)
- A bit of cinnamon
- Butter (to grease in the apple pie form)
- Sugar (1 tablespoon)
Preheat the oven on 180 Celsius degrees. Make the dough to by mixing the flour, butter sugar and eggs together. When you’re done leave the dough to ‘rest’.
Skin the apples, remove the core and cut it in pieces. Put the raisins in water, and let them in there for a while. When they have gone all soft take them out and dry them. Mix the apples and raisins with the sugar and cinnamon.
Roll out the dough and grease in the cake-form/spingform-pan, cover the bottom and the sides with the dough, but make sure you still have enough dough left for the top of the pie. Add the filling in there and press it in firmly. When you’re done with that use the left over dough to create strips for over the pie.
Bake the pie in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes until they are gold-brown.
Variation: Mini apple-pie cupcakes.
Follow the recipe for a normal apple pie. But instead of using the regular cake-form use cupcake forms (something like this). Grease it in with the butter, cover the sides and bottoms with the dough (keep in mind to leave enough dough for the top), fill it with the apple/raisin mix and roll out the left over dough again. Instead of using strips, cover up the entire cupcake pie, and use a small knife to make 3 or 4 cuts in the middle of the pie, on top of it for air to get out of there.
Put it in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes. I had it in there for around 40, because it didn’t wanted to get brown. But you usually keep it in the oven until the top is golden-brown.
