How to make "Polish Apple Pie"
Prepare all the ingredients you need.
Sift flour, icing sugar and baking powder into a dry bowl. Add cold butter.
Chop the butter with a knife and crush into crumbs. Add yolks and yogurt. Knead a soft dough. If the dough does not form well, add a little protein.
Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Wrap each in a bag. Put one part in the refrigerator, the other in the freezer.
In the meantime, let's prepare the filling. Wash the apples, peel and core, cut into small pieces. Place the sliced apples in a saucepan and cover with apple juice. Add spices and simmer over low heat, covered for 10 minutes. Then add sugar and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add starch and lemon juice. Mix everything well. The filling is ready.
By this time, our dough has cooled down a bit. Roll out the dough from the refrigerator into a layer (taking into account the sides) for a shape of 22-24 cm. The side should be 2-3 cm high. The sides can be stretched with your fingers right in the mold.
Place the filling on the dough.
Grate the dough from the freezer on a coarse grater. Place the grated dough on top of the filling and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 180 degrees.
After cooking, let the cake cool completely, carefully remove it from the mold and serve with freshly brewed tea!
Enjoy your meal!
