Apple pie

I baked apple pie for iftar last month, tapi belum sempat post gambar apple pie tu lagi. When my sister in law stayed at my place on the eve of raya, she had asked for the recipe.

So, to Awin, this recipe is for you, enjoy!

Recipe adapted from pete bakes! with some slight  changes to the original recipe (and I also skipped the part on caramel sauce and cinnamon ice cream).

For the crust:
110 g butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
a pinch of salt
1 14 cup flour

Beat the butter, add in other ingredients (except for the flour) and beat until blended. Add in the flour and beat just until the dough begins to clump together. Flatten and press into a 9 inch tart pan. Pierce crust all over with fork and freeze for 30 minutes. Bake for about 30  minutes in a preheated oven (160 degree Celsius) until golden brown.

For the filling:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cornstarch
50 g butter
About 4 granny smith apples, mix with 1 red delicious apple and 1 yellow delicious apple
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Mix both brown sugar and cornstarch in a bowl. Melt butter, add in apple pieces and saute for about 10 minutes. Add the brown sugar/cornstarch mixture, stir until dissolves and add in vanilla essence and cinnamon. Simmer for about 5 minutes until juices are bubbling and slightly thickened.

For the crumb topping:
6 tbsp flour
6 tbsp brown sugar
a pinch of salt
3 tbsp chilled butter

Mix all in a food processor until small moist clumps form.

To assemble the tart, spoon the apple filling into the tart crust and top with the crumb topping. Bake for about 25 minutes in a preheated oven (170 degree Celsius) until topping is crisp and golden.
