Apple Pie

Apple pie, one of our favourite pie and we just love it, i can also say that apple pie one of the most famous dessert in France. I do it quite often when its peek season of apples here,  when we got the mail for this month's Baking Partners challenge, i was really surprised to see that this month's challenges was to make either pie with apples or a savoury tart. Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen,the brain child of this monthly baking event shared us very interesting pies and tarts suggested by the members of this baking family and asked us to try atleast one among them. I chosed to make apple pie suggested by Gayathri of Gayathri's Cook Spot from Taste.com and i know this pie will be a hit among my kids.

I used golden apples for making this pie, as i told the crust was quite a keeper, am gonna make this pie with different fruits very soon. My lil one enjoyed thoroughly and he even asked me to make an another pie on the same day itself,yep he just loved it. Thanks to Swathi and Gayathri for sharing this beautiful apple pie.


1+3/4cups Plain flour
1/2cup Self raising flour
185grms Unsalted butter
1/3cup Sugar
1no Egg
1tbsp Milk
A pinch Salt
Beaten egg for brushing

For filling:
6nos Golden apples
2tbsp Lemon juice
50grms Butter
1/2cup Sugar
1tsp Cinnamon powder
1/4tsp Nutmeg powder

Sift the flours with salt in a large mixing bowl, add the butter and rub it with your fingertips.

Continue to mix until the flour resembles as fine bread crumbs, then add in the sugar, one beaten egg and milk and drizzle over the flour.

Start to bring the dough together  and form a smooth ball with your hands. Divide the dough into two pieces, one larger than the other.

Wrap it in a plastic wrap and let it sit for half an hour in fridge.

Peel and core the apples and cut into 8pieces, toss it with lemon juice to prevent the discolouring of the apple.

Place the butter,sugar in a large pan and heat it in low medium flame, once the butter starts melting, add the apples,spices and stir to coat.

Cook by stirring occasionaally until the apples softened. Keep aside and let it cool.

Roll out the larger pastry ball,dust it well and roll it as a round circle, transfer the rolled pastry to the pie dish.

Gently press the corners, now place the filling over it.

Roll the small pastry and top it.Lift the pie dish and cut the excess of the pastry from the edges,press the edges well with the fingers.

Chill it for 30minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350F, place the pie dish on the baking tray, brush the top with the beaten egg and bake for 30-35minutes.

Once the pie gets cool, dust it with confectioner's sugar and enjoy.
