Go to Image Apple Pie

For the dough:
- 280 g flour
- 170 g butter
- 35 g sugar
- 1 egg

For the cream:
- 1 litre of milk
- 7 egg yolks
- 200 g sugar
- 80 gr cornstarch
- 80 gr flour
- cinnamon
- Lemon and orange zest

For the apple decoration
- 3 apples
- 200 g sugar
- A little butter

We start our recipe by making the dough. Mix the flour, butter, sugar and egg in a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together and knead them by hand until the dough is homogeneous and not sticky. A trick, if the dough does not stop being sticky, is to add more flour little by little so that it gains consistency.

Once our dough has the desired texture and is not sticky, we will spread it on a low base for baking cakes. Before rolling it out, bear in mind that the base of the tart should be covered with either aluminium foil or baking paper.

Put the dough in the preheated oven, bake at 180ºC for 10 minutes. Once this time has elapsed, remove and reserve for later.

Nowwe start with the cream for the cake. To make it, put the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and mix until the ingredients are well blended.

Add the flour and repeat the process and the same with the cornflour. Pour half a litre of milk into the mixture and stir with a whisk.

Boil the other half litre of milk with the cinnamon and the lemon and orange zest. Once the milk is boiling, add our mixture and stir with the whisk until it thickens.

When you have reached the desired thickness, add the cream to the baked cake base and set aside while you prepare the apples for decoration.

Peel and cut the apples into small segments. Put these segments in a bowl with sugar and butter, cover it with cling film and heat it in the microwave. Once heated, add the segments to the cake with the design you like best until the whole surface is covered.

When we have finished, bake the cake for 10 minutes at 150ºC.

Voilà, we have a delicious apple tart, ready to serve, eat and enjoy!
