My Yummy Apple Pie

The aroma of apples and spices filling the kitchen while baking this Apple Pie recipe is enough to make your mouth water. Last year, my hubby´s work colleague gave us 3 bags full of apples from his own orchard. We were really thankful but I did not know what to do with all those apples??!! So I looked up for some Apple Pie recipes. I found lots of them, tried some but really like only one or two, like the really Easy Apple Crumble. So when I was getting the hang of making apple pie, I tried to add some personal touch and mix it a bit…the result was this recipe. I find it best to bake it in a Flaky Pie Crust.

My Yummy Apple Pie
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
  • 4 medium size apples- peeled, cored and cut into slices about 2cm thin
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp peach nectar or juice (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 250g All purpose or whipping Cream (Schlagsahne)- make sure it is cold
  1. Preheat the oven to 390°F/200°C.
  2. Take ¼ cup of the sugar and mix with cinnamon and mix with the sliced apples. Set aside.
  3. Press the pie pastry into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Flute the edges if desired. Arrange the apple slices in the pie crust in layers starting from outside circle going to the center, lying half on top of the other.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix the butter and 2/4 cup sugar together until smooth, then beat in the eggs one at a time until light and fluffy. Stir in flour and vanilla. Mix in the raisins and apricots. Pour over the top of the apples.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes then reduce to 325°F/175°C for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until apples are soft and custard is set in the center. Cool completely before slicing and serving.
  6. While the pie is cooling, place the cream in the mixing bowl. Add a teaspoon sugar if desired. Whip on high speed for 2-3 minutes or until stiff.
You may also use 2 big or 3 medium pears instead of apples.
