Hey!!What holiday do we celebrate on March 14th? What might hungry mathematicians eat on the 3rd month’s 14th day? Ah yes, on March 14th, we celebrate Pi Day to honor pi, the revered mathematical constant of 3.14 and a trillion more digits.
So.. in honor of the Pi Day we have to bake a Pie!! I decided to bake a delicious Apple Pie for the Pi-Days of Kitchenparade! So.. thanks to hosting this event! Ya.. I have to say.. if I hear the word PieI always have to think about the American Pie… the movie… should I shame on me?? *g* All of you will probably remind the scene with the Apple Pie.. right? Actually I don’t think I have to show you the scene.. but if you really like to see … now you remember- right?
So… I thought.. you have to bake one like that! A double crust apple pie!! What a glorious idea, isn’t it? Oh and an other thing… you know that I LOVE Ben & Jerry’s (ya.. right after Häagen Dazs)… and I just saw that they have the taste “Apple Pie”!! Wow.. I think you can’t buy this here in Switzerland.. but omg.. I really want to try this…! So if you see this in your store.. PLEASE please send it to me! 😉
– 420g flour
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 2 tablespoons sugar
– 240g cold butter, cutted
– 90g palm-shortening
– 160ml cold water
– 5 big apples, peeled and sliced
– 35g flour
– 110g sugar
– 3 tablespoons cinnamon
– sultanas, nuts… whatever you like!
1. If you like the dough really “crumbly” you can give the butter and palm-shortening into your icebox till you’ll need it again.
2. Measure flour, salt and sugar and mix it well. I really love cinnamon.. so why don’t you give some cinnamon to the dough? Amazing!!!
3. Add the butter and palm-shortening till the whole looks really crumbly.
4. Add 140ml cold water (reeeeally cold water!!!) … just enough that the dough is mixed well and fits together. So maybe you won’t need 160ml water!
5. Give the dought to your table (which you spread with flour) and press fast to a slice. Give the dough in a plastic bag and this to your fridge for 2 hours
1. Preheat your oven to 225°C. Use a baking pan with a low border! Don’t use a normal spring form! Split the dought to 2 pieces. Roll both parts out (2-3mm) on a flour spreaded table.
2. Give one of the parts to ur baking pan and press on the sides. Fill the Pie with the apples (many – many – many apples!!) (of course you mixed the apples before with the other ingredients –> see below).
3. Give the other dough piece over the apples. If there’s some dough-rest at the border .. just cut it away. Slit some decoration in the dought (you have to… ’cause the heat has to come out during baking!)
4. Bake for 15 minutes on 210°C. Reduce the heat to 190°C and bake for 60min. He’s done if the dough is gold-brown.
1. Peel and slice the apples.
2. Add flour, sugar and cinnamon (as much as you like!).
3. Do you like sultanas?? Add! Do you like some nuts? Just chop and also give to the filling! Whatever you like… give in!
