Apple Pie

Apple pie is such a classic dessert that I always go back to during fall and Christmas times. 
This recipe takes about 1,5 hours to make. I would serve it warm with either vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on the side. 

What you need:
for the dough:
3 dl flour
125g butter
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water

for the filling:
5 red apples
50g butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 dl sugar 

How you make it:
Start by making the dough: 
Step1: Combine the the ingredients for the dough.
Step2: Wrap the dough in foil and put it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Continue with the filling:
Step3: Wash your apples and cut them down the middle.
Stap4: Cut the core out of all your apples, slice them in thin slices and place them in a large bowl.
Step5: Melt the butter then take it of the heat and add the sugar, cinnamon and cardamom.
Step6: Pour the melted butter over the apples and make sure that all the apples are covered in melted butter.
Step7: Pour the apples into a large frying pan and place it on medium heat so that the apples cook in the butter and become soft. Cook them for about 10 minutes.

Step8: Preheat your oven to 200°C
Step9: Butter a pie dish.
Step10: Sprinkle some flour on a flat surface and roll out your dough so that it is 4-5mm thick.
Step11: Place the dough in your dish and poke small holes on the bottom of the crust.
Step11: Bake your crust for 10 minutes then take it our and fill it with the apples.
Step12: Bake the pie for another 30-40 minutes and then serve it warm with some ice cream or whipped cream. 

I also made smaller pies. Just because I felt like it.
