Italian Apple Pie


300 g of flour 

80 g of sugar

a pinch of salt

zest of one lemon

1 egg

200 g of butter


3  apples

40 g of butter

2 tablespoons of sugar

half a teaspoon of cinnamon

For the custard cream

45g sugar

260g of milk

20g cornstarch

Mix the vanilla custard cream, and cook it at medium-low heat until it thickens. Set aside.

Dough: Mix the sugar with lemon zest and the butter. Add the egg, and slowly add the flour with the salt. Add water if needed. Place it in a pie mold previously greased, and leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes. Bake it for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 365F. Set aside.

Peel the apples and slice them. In a pan, heat the butter, and add the apples. Sprinkle it with the sugar and cinnamon. Cook it only for 3 minutes.

Place the apples on the pie dough that it is half way cooked. On top place the vanilla custard. Bake it at 365F for 25 minutes or until golden brown. ENJOY!
