Ingredients serves 8

For the pie crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons shortening

For the filling

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 7 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Milk for brushing the crust


1 The crust: mix crust ingredients in a food processor and mix until crumbs form. Add 5 tablespoons of ice water and process until the dough forms a ball. Divide in two, flatten, wrap in plastic and refrigerate.

2 The filling: mix the ingredients in a bowl, except apples and butter, and set aside.

3 Roll dough out into 2 rounds. Use one to fine a pie plate. Add the apples and the reserved mixture. Dot with bits of butter and top with the remaining crust. Seal the edges, brush with milk, and make some slices in the top crust to allow steam to escape while cooking.

4 Bake on high heat for 40 minutes or until crust is nicely browned. Serve warm.

Wine Pairing

Advice of Wine to combine

Suggest from Sommelier

Here it's necessary to balance the sweetness of the dish with the vine. To achieve that, we think of a late harvest Riesling, honeyed, with notes of orange blossom, mandarin, and citrus, which leave a fresh sensation on the finish.
