My First Apple Pie


Last week I made my first apple pie from scratch.  

Here is the recipe.  I added one secret ingredient - lemon zest.

Crust
  • 1/2 L or 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 of a stick (90 g) of unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoons of cold water or apple cider - I used apple cider
  • 1 egg (for brushing, helps the surface get golden)
  • Milk (for brushing)
  • 1 TBL spoon of lemon zest and lemon juice
Filling
  • 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 80 mL or 1/3 cup of white sugar
  • 80 mL or 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • Lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 6  medium-sized apples (McIntosh or Granny Smith)

This pie tastes delicious with vanilla ice cream!  And it tastes even better in US!
If I would've made this pie in Chad I would have paid 7$ for six apples imported from South Africa ...
