Apple Pie


Apple Pie

1 roll Spelt Butter Puff
4gm Corn Starch
55gm Caster Sugar
1pc Cinnamon Stick
20gm Unsalted Butter
270gm Green Apple (skinned and cubed)
2gm Sea Salt
0.5pc Vanilla Pod
1 Egg

Cinnamon Sugar

20gm Caster Sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.

  2. Peel green apples and cut them into small cubes.

  3. Pour the corn starch over the apples and mix it till the corn starch can't be seen.

  4. Cut vanilla pod into half lengthwise. Scrape the pods from the half vanilla.

  5. Heat pan on medium heat for about 1 minute then put sugar, salt and half vanilla pod into pan.

  6. Turn to low heat. Resist from stirring. Instead, once there is colour seen from the sugar, swirl the pan to distribute heat.

  7. Once sugar is caramelized (a nice amber colour), add in cinnamon stick and butter. Stir well with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula.

  8. Add in apples and stir. Cook till apples are soft and the filling is thickened, around 6 to 8 minutes.

  9. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

  10. Unroll the spelt butter puffs and cut into 9cm by 6.5cm rectangles. You'll get 16 rectangles. That makes 8 covers and 8 bottom layers.

  11. Make 3 scores on the 8 puff covers.

  12. Brush the edges of the bottom pieces with an egg that has been gently whisked. Add a little more than 1 table spoon of cooled apple filling to each.

  13. Add the top piece of puff and press along the sides with a fork to seal. Then place your pies in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes. This will help the pies to keep their shape.

  14. Sprinkle sugar onto the puffs along the sealed sides or all over the top.

  15. Bake for about 13 minutes then turn the tray and bake for another 2 minutes for even colouring of pies.
