Apple Pie


Apple Pie
This classic of family cooking is quite simple: just a puff pastry "shell" sealing in lightly sweetened slices of apple.

During cooking, the fruit softens to resemble stewed apple. Serve warm, if possible, to enjoy at its best.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Apple Pie
Roll out 300 g Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée), if not ready-rolled, into 2 identical circles.

Line a tart tin or mould with one.

If your pastry came with a sheet of cooking parchment, leave this in place in the bottom of the tin.

Stage 2 - 2 min.
Apple Pie
Fold the pastry over the edge of the tin, leaving an overhang of about 1/4 inch (1/2 cm).

Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C).

Stage 3 - 7 min.
Apple Pie
Peel 750 g apple, slice into half-rounds (like in the photo) and fill up the pastry case.

Stage 4 - 1 min.
Apple Pie
Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons caster sugar and 1 teaspoon Vanilla sugar over.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Apple Pie
Prepare the second circle of pastry: make a small hole in the centre to let the steam escape during cooking, then use a brush to moisten around the edge with cold water.

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Apple Pie
Moisten around the rim of the pie case as well.

This will help the pastry "lid" to stick.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Apple Pie
Place the second pastry circle on top of the first so that the moistened edges are in contact.

Seal the edges by pressing with your fingers, then trim off any excess pastry.

Stage 8 - 2 min.
Apple Pie
Finish by glazing the top of the pie.

Stage 9 - 30 min.
Apple Pie
Bake, preferably low down in the oven, for about 30 minutes.

Leave to cool slightly before taking the pie out of the tin.
Remarks
Use slightly sharp apples if you can, or add a little lemon juice with the sugar.

If serving the pie warm, make it extra delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a little chantilly cream.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Home made.
