We really love apple pie and especially when it is freshly baked from the oven and it is still a little hot. In Denmark the apple season is in the autumn – this is the time of year where the apples have spent the entire summer licking sun and growing big and juicy. I believe this is just great because a hot apple pie is the perfect desert for a cold autumn day. This recipe for apple pie is super simple and easy to cook and you get the most delicious pie. This apple pie is basically a layer of fresh apples topped with crumbled cinnamon dough. The sweet but still a little sour apples, goes perfectly with the crispy and cinnamon spiced crumble dough.
