Ingredients

How to make it

  • Make crust:
  • Mix flour and salt in a food processor, add diced butter and process until mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add iced water and mix until dough forms a ball. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead it together, and then divide in half.
  • Flatten each half into a disk, wrap and chill for at least half an hour.
  • Roll out one of the disks on a lightly floured surface until you have a circle of 12 inches in diameter.
  • Put the circle in a 9" pie plate, trimming any extra dough from the edges with a rolling pin. Return it to the refrigerator until you make the filling.
  • Heat oven to 390F.
  • Peel, core and cut the apples into dices .Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in large bowl. Stir in apples. Pour into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter .Cover with top crust and seal the edges. Cut slits in the top. Using a cookie cutter make decorative shapes with the rest of the dough (hearts flours or leaves).
  • Glaze with a little milk on the top. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serving idea:
  • Cut into wedges, scoop vanilla ice cream ball over the top and drizzle with rich caramel sauce.

    I have to agree, Ahmed - it is hard to beat a good apple pie with a crispy crust (and all that butter in your crust is bound to make it light and flakey!!) and a side of vanilla ice cream or caramel sauce...it IS a classic! And of course, you took the presentation a step higher with those cute cut-outs...you ALWAYS go the extra mile, and that's what makes your desserts absolutely irresistable (that, and the taste, of course!)...thank you, friend, for such a truly timeless recipe...Krum

    Ahmad - Gorgeous pie, tart, as you said, whatever you want to call it. As Shakespeare might have said if he had seen and eaten your pie, A pie by any other name is just as sweet. (So long as it's made by Ahmad!) Great photos!!!

    Apple pie is something I keep saying I am going to bake soon...there is always something else that I need to bake first. Your pie looks so beautiful with the cut-outs on top. Recently I bought a pie trim. It is something that presses down on the crust like a cookie cutter. I need to use it and make a pie real soon!!
