Apple Pie

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 min. + 3 min. oven off
4-6 Servings


  • 600 gr. apples
  • 180 gr. plain flour
  • 150 gr. granulated sugar
  • 50 gr. butter
  • 2 eggs
  • a little milk
  • 1 lemon
  • 16 gr. baking powder
  • 2 or 3 biscuits
  • salt

1. Crumble the biscuits finely. With very little butter grease a nearly 24 cm diameter baking-dish, then dust it with the crumbled biscuits paying attention to make them stick to the inside of the pan (mould). Peal the apples, cut them in the middle and, after having taken out the cores, cut in thin slices.

 2. In a bowl pour out two yolks and 130 gr. of sugar; with a wooden spoon or a small whisk, work until they are properly whipped, adding, if needed, two or three spoonful of milk. Join the grated lemon rind (well cleaned) and little by little all the flour, to which is to mix the baking powder (if possible, pass them through a sieve). Add some other spoonful of milk in order to obtain a mixture as dense as mashed potatoes.

3. Pour out in another bowl the whites, put a pinch of salt and beat them until they are stiff. Add them to the egg yolk mixture and work very gently to keep it whipped.

With a spoon pour out everything in the baking-dish paying attention not to create air pockets, then level the surface and cover it with the apple slices making a regular layer; then dust the surface with the sugar left and add over all small pieces of butter.

4. Afterwards put the baking-dish in the oven set on PIE function for 35 minutes. When cooking time is over, let the pie stand in the oven switched off for 5 minutes before putting it on a dish. Spread the surface, while still hot, with liquid honey.
