The apple pie is the classic, traditional American apple pie, a cake that dates back to the times of the settlers, and that in the United States today is as much a cultural icon is commonly called American Pie. The Apple pie is a cake made of two layers of a kind of sweet pastry crust with the center a rich layer of apples flavored with spices and sugar, is a cake without eggs (egg the only one to utilize is to brush the top the upper crust which can easily be replaced with a little 'of brushed milk) easy to do and very meloso. The apple pie intrigued me since childhood, I love cakes with apples and when I read the little mouse and I saw Grandma Duck churning apple pies all the time I have always had the desire to go to America just to taste it and now that at last I decided to prepare I crowned my little dream girl 🙂 This apple pie is the first recipe of the year and it is with it that I offer you my best wishes for a new year really crackling!
