Apple pie

An Apple pie is a Pie or a Tart, in which the principal filling ingredient is Apple. It is, on occasion, served with whipped cream or ice cream on top, or alongside cheddar cheese. The pastry is generally used top-and-bottom, making it a double-crust pie; the upper crust may be a circular or a pastry lattice woven of crosswise strips. Depending on the baker’s preference, the bottom of the double-crust may be baked first (before baking the whole pie) to prevent the bottom from getting soggy. Follow the steps to get amazing results.

Short Crust pastry dough – 200 gm.

Apples – 100 gm.

Sugar – 50-60 gm (depending upon the sweetness of apples)
