My First Apple Pie

Apple Pie

We have an apple tree on the backyard. As the fall is starting, the apples had started to fall down. Some of them are rotten, but some of them as still alright. What none of them are yet is in the ripened state, so I could just eat them raw.

I hate throwing the food away, so I have adapted a recipe to suit my needs better. Alright, I will admit it, I did not want to use eggs, happy?

Ingredients:

  • flour
  • salt
  • butter
  • milk
  • apples
  • cinnamon
  • sour cream
  • sugar

Recipe:

  • Melt the butter
  • Mix flour, salt, butter and milk to make a dough
  • Grate apples
  • Add sugar, cinnamon and sour cream to the apples
  • Put dough, apples and dough again in the pan
  • Bake on 180°C for 60 minutes

Suggestions: - If there is too wet filling, I have heard that putting flour can help. But I like the wet filling - This recipe ended up with too hard dough. Next time I should be careful to use enough butter

When the pie was still warm, it was delicious. I don’t really like the changes that happened when it got cold. Overall, it was a nice first try.
