  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I love making this for my clients and family on their special days, as it's not too sweet and better for them than cakes and much easier. 💋

    Step 2

    Wash, de-core, and peel the green apples.

    Step 3

    Slice the apple thinly.

    Step 4

    Put the apple in a microwave safe bowl, add sugar, apple juice, corn flour, salt, and cinnamon. Gently toss everything together. If you like, add raisin, it's really good. 😁

    Step 5

    Put the bowl in the microwave oven and nuke it on high for 4 minutes, stir gently and nuke it for another 4. When done, add lime juice and fold gently and leave to cool in room temp.

    Step 6

    Separate the egg. Drop the yolk into the cold water, add salt and sugar. Mix together the add the the freezer.

    Step 7

    Sift the flour. Some ppl say you don't need to. I'd say. It wouldn't hurt would it. 😜

    Step 8

    Dice or shred cold butter into small pieces.

    Step 9

    Cut and blend the flour and the butter together. You can use your hand, if you like, but it will get pretty messy. ☺

    Step 10

    The crumb should look like cake or bread's crumbs.

    Step 11

    Add the liquid ingredient (don't forget it give it the last stir before pouring)

    Step 12

    Work it into a smooth ball of dough.

    Step 13

    Cover with wax paper

    Step 14

    Chill for an hour.

    Step 15

    Divide the dough in half. Put the second half back in the fridge.

    Step 16

    Roll out thinly. Try to make it close to your pan's shape as possible.

    Step 17

    Put the pan over it

    Step 18

    Flip

    Step 19

    Peel off the wax paper and fit the dough into the pan.

    Step 20

    Make sure u check the corner of the pan

    Step 21

    Poke holes with a fork.

    Step 22

    Fill it up with ur apple

    Step 23

    It should be almost to the top.

    Step 24

    Take the other half of dough out from the fridge and roll out as thin as you can. Lazy? Put it over you pan just like that. And poke some venting holes.

    Step 25

    For something more fancy. Cut the dough into strips

    Step 26

    Weave it up. It doesn't have to be perfect. We can do some creative cover up.

    Step 27

    Pu the last strip on the rim of the pie.

    Step 28

    Cut anything beyond out border strip.

    Step 29

    Press the fork on the border strip to seal and decorate the pie.

    Step 30

    Use cookie cutter, cutting out cute shapes and place them on ur pie to cover up mistakes. 😓

    Step 31

    Brush egg whites all over the pie

    Step 32

    Preheat the oven to 180 and check your pie one last time.

    Step 33

    Put the pie on a rack and bake for around 40 minutes. By the time you smell delicious aroma from your oven. It should be golden brown and ready.

    Step 34

    rest the pie to cool down on a rack. Et voila! There you have it! A classic simple apple pie. ❤

    Step 35

    Special treat for someone you love and care about. ❤❤❤ enjoy!

    Step 36

    If you are keeping it for the next day, plastic wrap and put in a fridge. If you live in a cold country, you can just leave it on the counter 😄
