Best Apple Pie

, , , , , , , ,

It is now time to go English, the American art.
I have baked this Apple Pie really often now, it is just delicious and so juicy.

Started with the pie crust, best Pie Crust ever! 😛
It’s buttery, crispy, simply delicious. Quick and easy to prepare.

The apple filling is amazing! I prepare a sweet marinade and mix the apples in. This makes the filling nice, juicy and very tasty. I am really proud of this Apple Pie.

It is best to use slightly sourly apples for apple pies.

Best Pie Crust
  • 350 g flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 250 g cold butter
  • 6 tbsp ice cold water
  1. Mix flour, sugar and salt.

  2. Add cold butter pieces and knead. (Best using a food processor.)

  3. Add ice water and knead for a very short moment.

  4. Divide dough in two and wrap in cling film.

  5. Place in fridge for 1 hour.


The butter and water should be very cold.
The dough should stay cold, that is why it is best to use a food processor to knead.
Knead the dough shortly, so it stays buttery and flaky.

For the ice water I use a small bowl with water and ice cubes. Out of this I take the 6 tablespoons of ice water.
