Apple pie (any kind)

We feel that apple pie is something typical for the Autumn. What we adore about apple pie is that it is absolutely delicious and it is super easy and fun to make yourself. Now we have an apple tree in our garden which means that we can use our own apples for it which makes it even more special.

  • 1 tablespoon
  • 175 gr mixed unsalted nuts
  • 5 tablespoons raisins
  • 225 gr flour
  • 50 gr sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 100 gr butter (little pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Put the flour, white sugar, egg, pieces of butter in a bowl and mix and knead it into a ball. Cover it and let it rest for half an hour in the fridge.
  3. Slice the apples in little pieces
  4. Mix the apples, the nuts, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.
  5.  Get your dough out of the fridge and spread it on a bloomed cutting board.
  6. Cover your spring shape with your dough.
  7. Divide your apple mixture over your dough.

These were our three favourite Autumnal snacks. To be honest, our list is much longer, however, these are the ones we find most easy to make. So, we’d say take an afternoon off and fill it with baking and drinking hot cocoa.

What is your favourite Autumn snack?
