Thin Apple Pie


Many of you, who have been following my recipes would have noticed that I am more into making savoury dishes because that's the kind of food I will jump up and down for. I do consider myself lucky for my other half has the same taste in food as me, the spicy,tangy and salty kind of dishes. Even the snacks we have during weekends are pretty much the same, something like tuna rolls, mini pizzas or herbs flavoured slices of bread.  

Out of the blue, I had a craving for a sweet dessert into my system and what would be a better dessert than a thin slice of apple pie served with a scoop of ice-cream. After all, whenever I buy desserts from cake shops, it will either be apple puffs, apple turnover and apples! apples! all the way. Making desserts for me is about simplicity with searching for ingredients within my reach. I hate spending hours in my kitchen preparing desserts and the cleaning up of the utensils and the rest of the items used.  

While the crust was baking, I had enough time to prepare the apple topping.  Next was layering the flavoured apples in circles and back into the oven.  Either enjoy the baked pie as it is or with a scoop of ice cream.

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
Combine all ingredients for the crust.
Rub ingredients together to form a crumble mixture.
Into a greased spring form pan, press the crumble inside.
Bake on preheated oven (10mins) at 170C for about 15 mins or until crumble becomes light brown in colour.

For the top layer/apple topping
Add all ingredients and gentle mix together.
Arrange the apple sliced in circles on top of the baked crust.
Put back in the oven and bake for 50mins or until the apples sliced becomes light darkish brown.
Remove from oven and let it cool down.
Dust some icing sugar on top and served with ice-cream.

  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.
