How To Make Apple Pie From Scratch, Simple And Easy As Pie ;)

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes
  • For the casing you will need:
    1/2 L or 2 cups of flour
    1 teaspoon of salt
    90g of tenderflake pastry lard
    5 tablespoons of cold water
    1 egg (for brushing, helps the surface get golden)
    Milk (for brushing)

  • Place the flour, salt, and butter in a large bowl. With a fork, crush the butter until it forms tiny balls with the flour. Then slowly add the water. Knead with floured hands until a large dough ball forms. Split the ball in half and wrap one of the piece in plastic wrap and place in the fridge.

  • On a floured counter-top, begin to roll the dough out into a circle shape about 2 inches larger in diameter than the pie pan. Place the dough over the pan, being careful not to let it tear. Fit it into the pan, pressing it against all the sides. Place in fridge.

  • For the filling you will need:
    1/3 cup of white sugar
    1/3 cup of brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon of salt
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    3 tablespoons of flour
    6-8 medium-sized apples

  • Make the filling. Peel and slice the apples into pieces about 1/8 of an inch thick or chop them into 1/2" cubes. Put them into a large bowl and mix with sugars, salt, lemon juice, flour,nutmeg and cinnamon. The more you stir the juicier it gets. Place in refrigerator.

  • Roll the remaining dough flat on floured surface. Cut the dough into as many 1" wide strips as it will yield. Next pour the apple mixture into the casing.

  • Place the pastry strips across the top of the apples in a criss-cross pattern, then weave them together to create a lattice effect.
    Cut off the overhanging excess pastry and press the edges down into the rim.

  • Dust with milk and cinnamon. Bake at 400ºF (200ºC) for 15 minutes. Turn down the oven to 375ºF (190ºC) for 45 minutes.

  • Not bad for my first attempt. It tasted seriously good
