- 375 g apples
Peel and core apples, cut in two half’s and slice into pieces.
- 1 tbsp sugar
- ¼ tbsp cinnamon
- ½ tbsp lemon juice
Add cinnamon, lemon juice and sugar to apples and mix
- 10 g unsalted butter (for the sauce)
- ⅜ tbsp whole-wheat flour
Heat the pan, melt butter and add flour, then mix until smooth.
Add the souse to apples
- ¼ egg yolk
Roll out the dough (the biggest ball is the first layer) in a round shape. Remove it in the cooking mold. Put all apples in it, then roll out the remaining dough and slice into thin (1,5cm) layers. Weave a lattice crust for the top layer or the upper part can coat the entire pie! Whisk one egg yolk and brush it on the top crust.
