The World’s Best Apple Pie
I am sick in bed with a migraine (it started yesterday around noon and still keeps on bothering me so that I can barely keep my eyes open). But hunger made me get up out of bed and I had to see that we have nothing in the fridge. The boyfriend then suggested that I could make the apple pie, which we did not make for my birthday. As it is a super easy to make and amazingly delicious I thought I share my way of making it.
What you need:
- 1x pie dough (yes, you could make it yourself, but this recipe is meant to give you a quick and delicious pie, so why bother if you can buy them already done)
- 4-6 apples (how many you need exactly depends on their size, you can decide yourself if you want to take more sweet or more sour-tasting apples)
- 3-4 cups of flour
- 2,5 cups sugar
- 150g butter
- 3 TS lemon juice
- 2 TS cinnamon
- sour cream (for afterwards)
1st Step: Take the apples, wash and dry them and start cutting them into thin slices.
2nd Step: But the cut apple slices into a bowl and add the lemon juice (for taste and so that the apples do not turn brown), 3 TS of sugar and the cinnamon. Now mix it all up and let it soak in.
3rd Step: We have to prepare the crumbles for the topping. We mix the butter, the rest of the sugar and the flour. Start mixing it with your hands and knead it until it looks like above. Do not knead it too much and watch out that the butter stays cold enough!
4th Step: But the pie dough into a pie form and cut off the excess. Afterwards but in the apples but watch out to not get the juice in as the pie might turn out to soggy.
5th Step: But the crumbles on top of the pie and put it in the pre-heated oven. The pie needs about 30 minutes with 180 degrees celsius. Take and give a few minutes.
6th Step: Take out of the oven and let it cool down! The juice as to be sucked up by the cake again so it needs a while after it has been in the oven. Eat it with a bit of sour cream to make it less sweet. Enjoy!
PS: This is the pie after 20 minutes. Afterwards I put it back in and gave it another 10 minutes. It varies from time to time 🙂
