Apple Pie Made with an Easy Pie Crust

Apple Pie Made with an Easy Pie Crust

I learned how to make this flaky pie crust in England. I stuffed it with thick and juicy sweet apples.

Ingredients: 15 cookie shaped pies

Pie Crust:
Plain white flour
150 g
Butter or margarine
75 g
Water
2 tablespoons
Apple Filling:
Apples (Jonathans, if available)
1
Sugar
20 g
Water
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. ★Make the pie crust: Add the flour and butter to a bowl. Mix together with your fingers until crumbly.
2. Once the mixture has become crumbly, pour water and bring it all together. Wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
3. ★ Make the Filling: Thinly slice the apples. Combine the apples, sugar, and water into a saucepan and boil on low heat until soft.
4. Take out the pie crust, roll it out thinly, and cut out the shapes.
5. Spoon the filling on a cut out circle, lay another on top and press down the edges along with a fork. Poke a hole in the center with the fork.
6. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and put on the pie crusts. Bake for 10 minutes in a 210ºC preheated oven, cool on a rack, and they're done!
7. Leftover Pie Crusts: It's cute if you fill them with jam and make jam pie. (Recipe ID: 700407)
8. Wrap around chocolate to make a chocolate croissant (Recipe ID: 1049264)
