Apple pie in the United States can be regarded as a single character of America. In any roadside cafe or expensive Michelin restaurant you should definitely be offered for dessert was apple pie.

If we have an apple pie - a pie in America - a cake of minced dough and filling nearly 2 kilograms of apples. In my opinion, it is even more apple pie, rather than apple pie. And all because the test here is very little, but a lot of apples.

I will not delay the entry, let's cook!

Cooking method


Butter diced, measure the desired amount of water and vegetable oil and removes all in the freezer for 30 minutes. These ingredients we need not just a cold, but super cool.


Flour and salt are combined together. Add the butter and begin to knead the dough. For this oil pieces are crushed and mixed with flour.

Vegetable oil is poured on top and scooping the dough from the bottom, as if the "sift dough between your fingers." The dough will be gradually impregnated with oil and begin to stick.

Pour ice water and the same movements as with vegetable oil, continue to "sift dough between the fingers." The finished dough should be slightly crumbly, but hold a single ball.

I divide the dough into two parts and rolled in a layer 1-2 cm thick. Packaging in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Prepare apples

While the dough is resting in the freezer, prepare the apples. I wash them, peeled and core. Sliced ​​into quarters, and then into small slices 3-4 mm thick.

All the dry ingredients are mixed until uniform. I poured into the apples and stir.


The dough is rolled out on a parchment layer 2 of about 30 cm in diameter. I shift the first layer in a baking dish. The second layer leave on parchment and send together with the form in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

The dough from the refrigerator. I shift in the form of apples. They are obtained with a slide, as it should be. I cover a layer on top of the dough edges come together and pursed fork.

I grease the cake with an egg on top of a small amount of water. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
