APPLE Pie

1 round baking pan, 26-28cmFilling:

750g sour apples, peeled and cut into 8 peacesTbsp Butter

3 Tsp spoons of sugar
half a lemon squeezed on the apples to keep them bright

I use store bought pastry dough.

Pudding
150 g water
3 cinnamon Sticks,
3 tablespoons sugar
2 Tbsp Maizena (corn or potato starch)
250g Cream
vanilla essence
3 egg yolks

Boil water with the Cinnamon stick until it takes on the color of cinnamon, add 3 tablespoons sugar and let it simmer. In another bowl combine 2 Tbsp. Maizena (corn or potato starch), 250g Cream , vanilla essence and 3 egg yolks.. Stir and add to the cinnamon water( Take Out Sticks at this point) Now stir until consistency changes into pudding and let it cool a little.

Place pastry dough into baking dish, pour in the pudding and cover with apple slices as seen in the images, then bake pie for 30 min at 180C. For thecaramelized topping, combine sugar with some lemon juice in a pot, heat and add some gelatin powder, stir while cooking for about 40 sec. Let it cool for about a minute then pour over pie
