Simple Apple Pie

Simple Apple Pie

I made a very delicious apple pie with left over apples.

Ingredients: Makes 4

☆Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
Puff pastry
4 pieces
Egg yolk
1 egg's worth


1. Peel the apples and soak in salted water (to keep the apples from browning).
2. Heat all of the ☆ ingredients, then add the apples from Step 1 once it comes to a boil. Cover the pot and boil the apples for 15-20 minutes.
3. Put the apples from Step 2 in a bowl and set them aside to cool. Cut into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
4. Cut the puff pastry sheets in half and cut long slits in half of the sheets as shown.
5. Place the apples from Step 3 on the sheets of puff pastry without slits.
6. Lay the sheets of puff pastry with the slits on top and brush the edges with egg yolk. Use a fork to press the edges down to seal the pies. (The egg yolk will act as a glue.)
7. Brush the surface of the pies with egg yolk (to add shine).
8. Bake the pies in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
9. All done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I made these since I had a lot of apples on hand.
