Apple pie for dessert can keep your stress away! How about that new saying!! LOL :P but it did for me. Things have been a bit busy and stressed in life for me and I am trying to break them all by baking some goody godly stuff now and then. This one for sure was a hit and made my day!

The completely warm and delicious dessert can for sure melt hearts and make you say a mmmmmm :) Its actually pretty easy to make to and wouldnt fail. Ofcourse the lattice strip pattern part is a bit challenging for beginners, its still worth a try and looks pretty decent and who cares if it taste all so great :P

Pastry dough:

Take the maida and icing sugar in a mixing bowl. Chop the cold butter into small chunks and drop them into the bowl. Put your hands into work and mix them until it resembles crumbs. 

Now add the beaten egg and work quickly to bring them all together into a dough. Dont work too much on it. Just mix it all and bring them together. Cling wrap and chill for an hour. 

Apple filling:

Peel and chop apples into small pieces. Take in a large pan and add the sugar and butter to it. Mix well until the sugar melts and the apples get cooked a little. Now add the cinnamon powder and cake crumbs and mix well. Remove from flame and allow it to cool. 

Roll the pastry dough into a large circle of 1/4 inch thickness. Carefully line the pie base and cut the extras. Poke holes on the base using a fork. 

Now spoon in the filling on the pie base and spread evenly. 

Roll remaining pastry, cut into 10 strips, each about 1/2 inch wide. Place 5 strips across filling in pie plate. Weave a cross-strip through by first folding back every other strip of the first 5 strips. Continue weaving, folding back alternate strips before adding each cross-strip, until lattice is complete. Trim ends. 
Egg wash the pie. 

Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C. 

Transfer the batter to the baking pan and bake at 180°C for 45 - 50 mins or until the pie looks golden brown. 

Serve warm and enjoy eating :)
