Ingredients:

For Crust:

  • Flour – 1 cup
  • Cold butter – 8 tbsp
  • Ice water – 1/4 cup
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar – 1/2 tsp
  • Egg White – 1  (to wash)

For Filling:

  • Apples – 4 no. (peeled, cored, diced)
  • Sugar – 4 tbsp
  • Cinnamon – 1 tbsp
  • Clove – 4 no

Method:

For Crust:

  • Mix the dry ingredients on a marble surface (Marble is best because it keeps the ingredients cold, and cold ingredients are the key to producing a tender, flaky pie crust.)
  • Dice the butter into small pieces and cut it into the dry mixture with a fork to ensure that you make a flaky pie crust.
  • Gather the pie crust mixture into the center of your preparation surface and create a well in the center of the mixture, gradually add the ice cold water
  • Knead it a few times till dough is formed

For Filling:

  • In a pan without lid, add the apples and sugar and stir to combine the sugar with apples
  • Mix in the cloves and cinnamon and keep gas on simmer and cook for 30 minutes or till water is dried out and apples are soft.

For Pie:

  • Roll out the dough in a square and in the center put the stewed apples
  • Now cut the dough in horizontal lines, 1 inch away from each other
  • Start folding it from the top; first the left and then the right alternating it to form the braided effect
  • With a brush egg wash the pie
  • Bake in oven for 20 minutes

Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
