A classic American dish, the apple pie has a filling of fresh apples, which get caramelised when baked, with a hint of cinnamon. The sweet filling of apples with the crunchy pastry of the pie makes this a wonderful dish!
125 gms flour
100 gms butter(cold)
2 Tbsp water
1 apple (peeled and thinly sliced)
2 Tbsp of brown sugar
Pinch of cinnamon powder
In a bowl lightly knead flour with the cold butter.
Add few spoons of water to make the dough compact.
Pack the dough in a plastic film and rest for half an hour in the fridge.
Place the apples in a bowl. Mix some brown sugar and cinnamon to the apples.
Once the dough is set place it between two plastic cling film sheets and roll it out to form a flat round disc.
Place the apples in a baking dish.
Remove the cling film sheets from the rolled out dough and place it on top of the apples.
Make incisions using a fork to the dough for the air to escape. Brush the pastry with whisked egg.
Bake the pie at 200°C for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 180°C and let it bake for another 20 minutes.
