Autumn Apple Pie

Back to big city life. Summer holidays are already a sweet memory of juicy fruits and fresh red tomatoes ripen in the Mediterranean sun in my grandpa’s garden. Winter is approaching, I can feel the nipping breeze blowing from the northern lands. An apple pie is the ideal treat for these gloomy days in between summer and cold season. Apple pie is easy to make and cheap but it is great in taste. It is necessary just some apples and half an hour to spare. Add some spices, honey and pine nuts to give it an original twist…just like in love affairs, the special ingredient in the kitchen is fantasy. The scent of hot apple baking in the oven warms up also the coldest day.

3 juicy apples
200 gr. plain flour
150 gr. sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon of baking powder
100 gr. of butter
200 ml. milk
A pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of honey
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Some crushed pine nuts

Preheat the oven to 180 C.Mix eggs and sugar together, making a soft yellow cream.
Sift the flour and all the other ingredients together until obtaining a soft mixture. Finally incorporate the crumbled apples. Spoon the mixture into a cake tin and bake for 35 minutes
