How To Make Apple Pie
For Pastry Dough
- ¼ cup Ice Water
- ¼ tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 2 tbsp Yellow Cornmeal
- 7 tbsp Unsalted Cold Butter
For Fruit Filling
- ¼ tsp Ground All-spice
- ½ tsp Cinnamon
- 1/3 cup Walnuts
- 2 oz Quince Paste
- 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 3 Small Golden Delicious Apples
- 3 tbsp Granulated Sugar
- Stir together flour, cornmeal, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
- Cut the butter into small pea-sized pieces and scatter it evenly over the flour mixture.
- Sprinkle ice water over the flour mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, while tossing it with fork. This will help distribute the moisture in the mixture uniformly, so that it sticks together.
- Use hands to shape the moistened fur into a cohesive ball. Flatten it roughly into a square shape and wrap it in plastic.
- Refrigerate for about 2 hours or more, before rolling.
- Peel the apples, cut them in half, throw out the core and cut them in 1/8” thin slices.
- Melt the butter and keep it aside.
- Toast the walnuts and chop them coarsely.
- Adjust rack in center of oven and set its temperature to 400° F to preheat it.
- In the meantime, sprinkle flour lightly on the work surface and roll the dough to about 1/8” thickness.
- Line a large rimless baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Drape the dough over the rolling pin and set it on the baking sheet.
- Toss apple slices, sugar, spices, nuts, and butter together.
- Spread the apple mixture evenly on the pastry, leaving an uncovered border of about 1½ to 2 inches.
- Fold the border over the fruit filling, to form a shape similar to that of a drawstring purse.
- Lightly coat the edge of the pastry with water using a pastry brush. Now, sprinkle sugar at the edges.
- Bake the pastry for about 40 to 50 minutes or until it is golden and crisp. Then, transfer it to the cooling rack, for 10 minutes.
- Cut the quince paste into 10 1 x ½ x 3/8 inch rectangular slices and put them under random apple slices, in a way that they peek out to give the delicious look to the dessert.
- Transfer the pie to a serving plate and serve warm.
