Who doesn’t love a good slice of pie? Salted or sweet, for us, pies are one of the most versatile recipes you can have. Due to is versatility, if you search online or in cookbooks, you will find millions of different recipes. For breakfast, lunch, dinner, basically for every occasion! So, as a result of this huge success, we decide that is time to share with the world our favorite pie recipes. (stay tuned for more!) With that in mind, we decided to start with our ultimate apple pie recipe.
The secret for this awesome pie is the combination of a buttery, flaky pie crust with the best variety of apples. This recipe is perfect for any occasion, for a dinner for two or for a big party with friends. In this particular recipe, we like to use a lot of apples (approximately 2 kg) so you will need a 26 cm (10 inch) tart pan. If you don’t have a large pan, do not despair. Just reduce the amount of apples, that everything will go perfectly. But if you really love pies as we do, you should definitely buy a 26 cm tart pan. You will not regret it!
