My First Time Baking An Apple Pie!

Hello!

My mouth starts to water every time I see an apple pie, like in a bakery or in a TV Show (I blame you Supernatural). One day I came across this recipe that looked so easy and the photo was calling me so I made it!

My mom said that it was going to be way too big for a first try, so I used half of the quantities, so instead of making it of 12 portions, I did it of 6.

Let’s start with the ingredients:

  • 125 g. flour
  • 375 g. apples (I used 1 and 1/4)
  • 62.5 g. butter
  • 50 g. sugar
  • 3 teaspoon of apricot marmalade
  • 1 egg

 

Now the steps I followed:

  1. Mix butter, sugar, egg, and flour, give it the form of a ball and put it in plastic wrap in the fridge for 30 minutes. (It’s a really sticky mixture so make sure to put flour everywhere)
  2. Peal the apples, cut the heart out and cut them in very thin slices.
  3. Butter the baking pan.
  4. Extend the mix with a rolling pin and put it in the baking pan. (This was the moment that I realized that there wasn’t enough mixture)
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 170º C (if it has a fan put it to 150º C)
  6. Put the apple slices on the pie (like a fan), put them pretty close to each other and spread 2 teaspoon of marmalade on them.
  7. Leave the pie in the oven for 25 minutes. (I don’t remember correctly but I left it in the oven for more than that. Until it looked golden)

 

So that was the recipe that I followed. But the pie did not look like the one in the book, so I thought I failed, until I try it and it was DELICIOUS!!

As you can see the pie on the book is thick and mine is way too thin.

So it was a fail for how it was supposed to look like, but it was a total WIN of how it tasted!

I will try this recipe again with the measurements for 12 portions, and see what happens. Or maybe use a smaller moulde.

My love for apple pie hasn’t change a bit if not grown, so tell me what is your favourite pie?

 

Have a great Wednesday. I will come back with another post very soon!
