#27 Apple pie

It all started about 2 years ago when I was studying and my ex-classmate and dear Taiwanese friend Betty found me a 19th century recipe for apple pie. Since then I have made innumerable changes to this recipe by taking out some ingredients and adding others and ending up with an apple pie which totally suits my taste! 😛 Do you want to try it? Believe me you won’t regret it! 😉


For the pastry:

125g of butter

4dl all-purpose flour

1 egg

½ dl sugar

4 tablespoons of cold water

For the filling:

2 medium-sized apples

70g of butter

1 ½ dl sugar

1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder

½ teacup of cold milk


Put the flour in a bowl and add the butter chopped in small pieces. Work it on till it looks like this!


Add the sugar, the egg and the water and work into pastry.

Cover the bowl like this and let the pastry chill for a couple of hours(in room temperature).


Start preparing the filling by taking a saucepan and melting the butter. Add the apples sliced into moon-like pieces (not very thin!), the sugar and the cinnamon powder. Keep stirring in high temperature until the apples become very soft and the mixture starts getting a caramel texture. Roll out the pastry and place it on a tart form. Place the filling on top and pour the milk. Bake your pie for approximately 45 minutes at 175 degrees and there you are! 🙂

Good luck!
