For us there's no autumn without apple pie and this is a recipe we love to do over and over again☺️ 

I even remember where I found it; I was reading a magazine while waiting for the dentist. Back then there were no phones with cameras so I must admit (sorry dentist!) I ripped out the magazine page with the recipe..... 

Hope you will love it as much as we do.

apple pie



For the pastry:

  • 180-210 grams all-purpose flour
  • 150 grams cubed unsalted butter
  • 60 grams icing sugar
  • 1 yolk

For the filling:

  • About 700 grams cooking apples, peeled and cut in wedges (must not be too thin, see picture)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cognac
  • 2,5 deciliter (double) cream   
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 deciliter almond shavings

 Steps to make it

Apple pie

For the pastry

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Place the flour, butter, sugar and egg yolks into a large, clean bowl.
  3. Combine the ingredients with your fingertips (or preferably in a food processor) until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, working as quickly as possible.
  4. Wrap the dough in clingfilm and chill for a minimum of 15 minutes, up to 30 minutes. Heat the oven to 175-200 C.
  5. Roll out the dough and line a 23-centimeter pie dish, peck the dough with a fork and powder some flour on, followed with your apple slices in a nice design.

For the filling

  1. Gather the ingredients and pour it over apple slices and sprinkle the almond chippings on top.
  2. Bake in the middle of a hot oven about 30 minutes or until the apples are soft and pastry is brown.

Serve with cream if you like but it’s not necessary ☺️

And don't forget to lit candles, take a nice cup of coffee or tee and place your self in a cozy armchair.

Bon appetit!
