Apple Pie

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I love to bake. It's my guilty pleasure as well as eating cakes and sweats....I'm such a sweat tooth. I'm always trying to find easy and delicious cakes. This week I've been baking pies. Yesterday I beak Pie with cheese but my absolutely fave is Apple Pie. I'm sure that lot of you know how to make this pie but I wanted to share with you my way of doing it.   
So let's start.

200 g of plain flour 
200 g of smooth flour
1/2 bag of baking powder
180 g margarine 
4 egg yolk
4 tablespoons milk
5 tablespoons sugar
grated rind of one lemon


8 medium sized cooking apples
optionally sugar
1 vanilla sugar
1 tablespoon rum


 Mix both types of flour and add the baking powder. 
 Melt margarine but not completely.  When it cooled, rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips. 
 Add milk, egg yolks, sugar and lemon rind. 
 Mixed until the dough is smooth and comes together in a ball.
 Leave it to cool for 30 minutes.

 Peel and grate apples. Leave them to release the juice. 
 Take in your hand a small amount of grated apples and squeeze out excess juice from them.
 Sugared them according to your taste and add the rum.

After the dough has been in the cold for half an hour divide it into two parts. Roll one half of on baking paper and put into a mold in which it will be baking.Then fill it with the apples. Roll other half and cut it into strips. Sort strips on apples. Bake at 160 degrees for 35 minutes.

And that's it. It's really easy to make and so delicious. Hope you like it! xo
