For some time now, my daughter has been asking me to make an apple pie. Honestly, I have never made a pie, not apple or any other kind, at least not what in the U.S. one would call a pie.
Pie dough I made numerous times, but always for some different desert such as a tart, a galette or similar. I guess, I just hang too tight on my European/Bosnian strings and have not yet found inspiration or courage to tackle the Pie Challenge. So, today I went for a, what is in Bosnia known as a Lazy Pie, because it really is almost effortless and the results are more than satisfying. Instead of all white flour, I used some rye flour too, for a richer taste. The real pie will have to wait for that special moment of inspiration…
THIS PIE TRULY MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH!!!
- 1 2/3 cup (215 g) all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup (43 g) rye flour
- 1/4 cup (50 g) sugar
- 10 1/2 tbsp (150 g) unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 lemon (zest)
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1 egg yolk
- pinch of salt
- 35 oz (1 kg) apples (peeled and shredded)
- 6 tbsp (75 g) sugar
- 1 pack vanilla sugar (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
- 1/2 lemon (zest and juice)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- handful of raisins (soaked in mixture of 1/3 cup rum and 1/3 cup water)
