We have several recipes for apple pie on our blog – this recipe for apple pie is made with marzipan and is very delicious. We think that an apple pie is best in the fall where the apples are freshly picked and full of tasteful apple juice. However, it is still very delicious all year around.
This apple pie is very simple to make. You simply just mix together the five ingredients for the pie dough, put it in a pie pan, cover it with apple wedges and finally sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and cane sugar. Then it is baked for about 25 minutes and it is done. We normally serve it warm with sour cream or some homemade vanilla ice cream.
