Introduction

This apple pie has a tender pastry and a sweet, moist apple filling. It can be served hot, warm or cold. It can be served for breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or as dinner dessert. Surely, it will take you some time to prepare the dough, but it's worth the effort. What I liked the most -it smelled particularly wonderful while baking.

  • Divide the dough into two balls, one lightly larger than the other. The larger ball will be the bottom crust and the smaller ball will be the top crust. Place one half of the dough onto the bottom of cake plate.
  • In a separate bowl, mix lightly cut apples, sugar and cinnamon. Place this mixture ontho the bottom of the dough.

  • Set this aside as it will be used as a glaze for the top of the cake. Brush the top of the dough with the egg and milk glaze, and sprinkle with white sugar. With a sharp knife cut several slits in the top crust to allow steam escape as the cake cooks.
