Apple Pie

The ingredients

For the pastry:

  • 350 grams of flour

  • 180 grams of butter

  • 100 grams of sugar

  • a envelope of vanillin

  • one yolk

  • a pinch of salt

  • half a cup of cold water

For the stuffing:

  • 3 sliced apples

  • a small piece of butter

  • juice of half a lemon

  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

  • cinnamon to taste

  • 3 tablespoons of jam


In a bowl, mix the sifted flour, sugar, vanilla, a pinch of salt and an egg yolk.

Then add the butter in pieces at room temperature.

After mixing the ingredients sufficiently, add cold water and continue to work, make the dough homogeneous (but not hard) and place it temporarily in the refrigerator.

Cut the apples and sprinkle them with lemon and sugar. Melt a small piece of butter in a pan and, when it sizzles, add the apples and cinnamon leaving them to cook for about ten minutes, then let it cool.

Roll out a little more than half the pastry and cover the pan with this, sprinkling the bottom with a layer of jam. Immediately after, add the apples.

With the shortcrust pastry you have left, make another disc that you will need to cover the apples. Close the edges and make small incisions in the central part of the cake.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° C for 40 minutes until the surface of the cake appears slightly golden.
