Apple Pie

"Since I was little my mother always makes this apple pie which she learnt form her father's mother. Make sure you use enough apples.

Mammas farmors eplepai

250 gram smør
300 gram mel
1dl vann

200 - 250 gram sukker ( støs oppå)
20 epler

Smuldre smør med mel til grynete masse.
Bland inn vann, samle til glatt deig. Del i to og kjevle ut, en til topp og en til bunn.
Legg den utkjevlede bunnen i langpanne, også oppover kantene. Fyll pannen med epler som du har skrellt og delt i båter, eplene synker sammen så det er viktig at det er masse eplebåter. Stø over sukkert. Legg på toppen, deigen må være kjevlet nokså tynn. Stek på midterste rille i ovnen i 45 til 60 min på 200 grader Celcius ( til gylllen).
Kjøl den litt og sikt på melis.
Er god sammen med vaniljeis eller krem.

enjoy,
Jana Winderen"

[translated by Marta Dixon:

Great Grandma's apple pie

250g margerine
300g strong white flour
1 dl water

200-250g sugar [to sprinkle on top]
20 apples[peeled and cored]

Crumble the margerine in the flour. Add the water, then knead the dough until it is smooth and firm. Divide the dough into two parts, one for the base and one for the top.

Roll one part into a square, big enough to cover a baking tin, including the sides.

Cut the apples into segments and fill the baking tin with the apples. The apples will shring in the oven, so it's important to use lots of apples!

Sprinkle the sugar on top.

Roll out the remaining dough until it is quite thin, then place on top of the pie.

Cook in the middle of the oven for 45-60 minutes at 200ºC (until golden).

Leave to cool a little, then sieve icing sugar over the pie..

Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

enjoy,
