Recipe taken from The Way The Cookie Crumbles. (Recipe from Dorie’s Greenspan)
Made this using 8 small red delicious apple + 2 large South African green apple. But turn out to be too much apples, i think using 8 small apples is enough.
Personally, I don’t find it that good, perhaps it is really good when eaten warm, it can get slightly wet and soggy when completely cooled the next day.
Total baking time is 80 minutes, there are bubbles from the apple through slits on the pastry 60 minutes into baking.
Pie pastry which is quite soft, has to be rested around 2 hours (up to 3 days) in fridge
Assembled apple pie cake, it was slightly difficult to assemble as the pastry is quite soft, as seen to be quite messy in pic above, i was literally pinching the dough into side of pan. Remember to cut few slits to let steam to escape
I used 230g butter, reduced sugar to around 100g, flour used was about 410g
