Caramel Apple Pie











You'll need:

Crust:



  • 2 cups of flour
  • 90 gr cold butter 
  • 10 tbsp cold water
  • pinch of salt



Mix the flour, the salt, and the butter, until the butter is crumbled into small pieces. Then, slowly add the cold water, and mix until you make a dough. If it seems too crumbly add more water, until everything is well combined.
Divide the dough into two pieces, and it's important to make one of the pieces a little bigger - because you'll need more dough for the bottom crust to be thicker. Wrap them with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge until you prepare the apple filling. ( It's best to keep the dough in the fridge for over an hour, but if you're not patient 30-40 minutes will do. )

Filling:



  • 5 green apples
  • 120 gr brown sugar
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar



Additional ingredients:



  • egg
  • bread crumbs



Melt the butter in a bigger sauce pan ( medium heat ) and add the sugar and the salt. After a few minutes, when the sugar starts to melt and caramelize add the sliced apples ( i sliced mine very thinly, even though they seem large, but it's up to you, e.g. thicker pieces or you can chop them in small cubes ), the vanilla sugar & the cinnamon. Cook for 5 minutes and then add the cornstarch. Cook for another 5 minutes. Let it cool for about an hour, because the filling needs to be cold when you start filling the pie.

Roll out the first piece of dough and put it in a previously buttered dish.
The dimensions of this crust should be as big as your dish, and the ends of the crust need to reach the edges of the dish.
Sprinkle a little bit of bread crumbs on top of it, then add the filling and then put the top crust on top.
Whisk the egg, and then brush the egg wash all over the pie.
Make a few tiny holes on the top crust.
Bake for 10-15 minutes in a preheated oven at 220'C, and then lower the temperature on 180'C and bake for another 30 minutes, or until the crust gets golden brown.

Enjoy!


Until Soon.
