Apple pie

I have this apple pie recipe not from my grandmothers or from my mother, but my godmother. I found it on an old piece of paper, with my mother’s handwriting on it, in Hungarian.

Apple pie

150g flour
70g butter (melted and cooled)
1 egg yolk
1 vanilla sugar sachet
1 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsps water
a bit of salt

2 large apples (chopped or grated)
10g butter
a bit of cinnamon (ground)
a bit of powdered sugar

First, let’s make the dough.
In a bowl, we will mix the flour, vanilla sugar, and salt. Separately, we will mix the wet ingredients – the butter, the egg yolk, the vinegar, and the water. We will then pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones.
When we reach a nice consistency, we will start to knead until we get a soft and wet ball of dough. 
Using a silicone mould (which doesn’t need greasing) or one of another type (either round or square) – which must be greased though –, spread the dough onto its bottom and its sides.

Let’s continue with the filling. We will cut the apples into cubes and chop them (I used my blender) or grate them (as I’ve seen my grandmothers do many times).

Heat the butter in a saucepan, add the apples and a touch of cinnamon and powdered sugar and mix for 2-3 minutes. The flavours will drive you wild!

As a last step, spread the apples over the dough, put the pie into the oven and bake at 170ºC for 15 minutes.
