Rest Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 1 hour
Serves : 4-5
To make the dough:
All purpose flour: 2 cups
Salt : 1/2 tsp
Unsalted Butter : 6 tbsp (cold)
Water : 60 ml (Ice cold)
Any Red Apples: 6 medium peeled, cored and sliced
(If using Granny Smith, 5 apples are enough)
Cinnamon powder: 1 tsp
Ground nutmeg: 1/2 tsp
Sugar : 1/3 cup
Brown sugar: 1/3 cup
Salt : 1/4 tsp
Egg : 1
Milk : 1 tsp
Butter: 2 tbsp
Take the flour and butter, start breaking butter into small pieces and slowly work it into the flour with your hands. Once it all mixed with no lumps left, add water little by little and make a smooth dough.
Cut the dough into half, wrap it in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Take all the ingredients under filling, mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Take the dough out, dust some dry flour, and roll them into 10" circles.
Take the first one and place in the pie pan, take the filling without the juices and fill all the way in the pan.
Add 2 tbsp of butter to the juices and cook for 3 minutes in a microwave to get a caramel texture. Pour that over the apples.
Cover with the second circle, press the edges, cut on the top.
Cook for 15 minutes, take it out, brush the milk and egg wash.
Lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for 45 minutes.
Take it out, let it cool for 15 minutes before serving.
