Warm apple pie that smells of cinnamon is one of my most favourite things. For me this scent evokes coziness and a feeling of home.
For this recipe only 9 ingredients are needed plus a baking tin. The dough is best kneaded by hand since it is really crumbly and the warmth of your hands will help bring all the ingredients together nicely.
To start with, peel the apples and slice them into thin wedges. Place them into a large bowl, add cinnamon and sugar, then mix well until all slices are coated.
Take roughly 3/4 of the dough and use your fingers and knuckles to spread it evenly throughout the baking tin. Make sure to pull the edges up a little. Then add the cinnamon and sugar coated apple slices.
Use the rest of the dough to make the top covering the apples. I find it easiest to spread the dough on a sheet of cling film until it is the size I want it to be. Afterwards I place it face down on top of the apple filling and carefully remove the cling film.
Make sure to punch a couple of wholes into the dough cover so the steam can escape.
After it is done baking, let it cool of a little – it makes it easer to cut without it falling it apart.
