Thin Apple Pie


Fruits are absolutely magical. An apple a day I know can keep the doctor away, but please, stop being a boring spot. Any fruit is a fruit for healthiness. Crunch, munch or daintily melt into your mouth, fruits are also so divinely lovely for desserts (Mango Cheesecake and Pineapple Bread Pudding), whereas can we deny on fruits freshness in salads (Apple Cucumber Salad)? Of course not. Having said that, I love apple desserts (Fried Apple Fritters). Undeniably I do. So, am I wrong to say, if not all, some of us just so love apple pie? I've already admitted, you take your time, at the same time, I'll tell you how to make this thin apple pie. Yes, thin because I hate being fat. The easiest crusty bottom layer, atop with apple slices scented with cinnamon, baked and luxuriated alongside a scoop of ice-cream. Nava-K's peak. Enjoy everyone.

Ingredients
For the bottom layer/crust
150g all purpose or plain flour
75g softened salted butter
10g caster sugar

For the top layer/apple topping
4-5 granny apples - cut into two, remove seeds and sliced thinly with the skin on
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon powder

Method:
For the bottom layer/crust
Rub all ingredients for a crumbled mixture.
Press it into a greased spring form pan.
Bake at 170C for about 15 mins or until crust is formed and cooked.

For the top layer/apple topping
Combine all ingredients and gently mix. .
Arrange apple sliced in circles on top of the baked crust.
Put back in the oven.
Bake for 30 mins or so or until the apples are soft.
Remove from oven.
Let it cool down.
Dust some icing sugar on top and served with ice-cream.

  10. No one likes the clean up work but I see that in my house who so ever cooks for clean up its only me.
    I like your sweet deserts which does not require too many ingredients. This pie is one of them and I like apples with cinnamon.

  12. Sometimes when you get the craving, it is best just to go ahead and make it! The crumble mixture with the apples does intrigue-I like the thick texture of this rather than a runny pie. Yum!

  20. The apple pie looks classy, compact and nice and I'm sure it'll taste delicious too. I also like the blue background against the white plate and the sliver of pie and ice cream(from afar there's a hint of mystery as to what it is-pistachio, dollop of ? ). This is a case where less is definitely more.
