Cooking tip for the apple pie recipe
You can use raisins, which you have removed the stems and washed with plenty of water, after keeping them in brandy to flavor and soften them, and use them in the inner mortar of desserts.
Another option is to soak the raisins in apple juice for flavoring.
You can include any pieces of dried fruit you want in the filling along with the apples.
You can choose to use vanilla extract or essence instead of vanilla powder.
HOW TO MAKE AN APPLE CAKE RECIPE?
After thoroughly mixing the egg yolk, powdered sugar, olive oil and salt, slowly add the water and mix.
Add the sifted flour little by little and knead until all the ingredients are combined. Take the dough that you hold with water and get a consistency in a clean bowl. After covering it with a clean cloth, leave it for 20 minutes at room temperature.
To prepare the apple filling while the dough rests; Divide the apples that you have washed with plenty of water into four equal parts. After removing the core parts, peel the shells. Cut the apples finely into chips or small cubes.
Put the butter and granulated sugar in the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes until it has a caramel color. Add chopped apples, almonds and raisins that you have soaked and drained and fry for 10 minutes.
After adding vanilla and granulated sugar, remove the inner mortar that you mixed last time from the heat and let it cool.
After dividing the dough, which rests covered at room temperature, into four equal parts, roll it out one by one with the help of a rolling pin on the kitchen counter where you sprinkle wheat starch to open it easily.
Clean the starch stuck to the dough you rolled out with a brush. Melt the butter you will use to grease the dough in a small saucepan.
Take the first layer of dough you rolled out on the kitchen counter. Brush it with butter with an egg brush. Stack all the phyllo sheets on top of each other, smeared with melted butter.
The rolled dough of the dough that you have divided into four equal parts should be as thin as possible so that your dessert spreads in your mouth and does not turn into dough.
Spread the filling you have prepared in the middle of the phyllo dough, leaving a margin at the edges. After folding the remaining pieces of phyllo inward, roll it lengthwise to form a large rectangle.
Carefully place the dessert on the baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees for 25 minutes, until golden.
After waiting for the dessert you bought in the oven to reach its first temperature, sift in plenty of powdered sugar. Serve after cutting and share with your loved ones.
