Hmm, after a long hiatus in the pie-baking field, have I recently picked up this old habit of mine again  - with family members volunteering to test. Today, while watching Verdi's Macbeth, I prepared the dough and the Bramley apples (sitting on the sofa made it a relaxed job)  and afterwards made it in to a pie. And of course, I proudly had to picture the result:




I
t's a quite tasty pie, though I was careless and didn't read the recipe well - too much sugar in the dough - so now the pie is sweet but chewy instead of crumbly. In Dutch it's called sand-pie, and not without reason. It should be a bit like short-bread when baking cookies from the same dough.

This is said to be a Dutch pie (though to me it looks rather international), with sour apples, flaked almonds, a hand full of raisins and cinnamon.

It seemed a razor-sharp picture as a thumbnail on my phone, but it puts me to shame here on my journal . Next time better. :)

And do not worry (in case any one would do that, which seems doubtful on a low-traffic blog, ha ha): this should be the only time I will share the results of my cooking with the world...
