Recipe#42: apple cinnamon cocoa pie
“Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness” (Jane Austen)
300 gr (2 ½ cups) all purpose flour
125 gr (½ cup) granulated white sugar
150 gr butter
cocoa nibs (q.b.)
brown sugar (q.b.)
In a bowl combine the flour, the sugar, the butter and the egg. Knead the dough until smooth and soft. Cover in plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Cut the apples in slices.
Preheat the oven to 180° (350 F). Butter a 22 cm (9 inches) round pan. Spread the dough in the pan with sides. Put the apple slices on the dough. Sprinkle the brown sugar, the cinnamon and the cocoa nibs on the pie.
Bake for around 45 minutes or until the top turns slightly brown.
