Everyone knows and loves apple pies... that dessert who is adored all over the world, with its crusts of pastry and with delicious apple and spice filling, I can say that it is queen of all pies...

Easy to make and with ingredients that you will always find in your kitchen. It is very important which sort of apple you will put in your filling, I always put Brae-burn or Granny Smith apples.


Brae-burn apples - have a combination of sweet and tart flavor, and they do not release a great deal of liquid and so they are ideal for pie or tarts.

Granny Smith apples - Perhaps the most recognizable of all the apples and certainly one of the most used. They go for very green to yellow when overripe. It is a crisp apple, hard, succulent white meat and very sharp taste.


Most home bakers have a secret recipe for their own best apple pie, with one or two spice that stands up. Except the main spice cinnamon you can find ground nutmeg, ginger, pimentos....
