Rum Apple Pie

Let’s be honest, rum makes everything a little better.

It’s not like apple pie really needs any help to begin with, but rum really takes it to another level of deliciousness. I just can’t get enough of this treat: soft baked apples, a dash of cinnamon and some dark spicy rum, all surrounded by a buttery, flaky crust. Now that’s a pie!

Ingredients:

150g (1.5 sticks) of butter

2 cups flour

3-4 tablespoons cold water

a dash of nutmeg

1 teaspoon cardamom

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon sugar

filling:

7-8 medium apples

50g (½ stick) of butter

½ cup sugar

6cl (2 ounces) dark rum

1 teaspoon corn starch

1 teaspoon cinnamon

a touch of vanilla

plus: greek yogurt & honey

How to:

Start by making the pie crust. Pick the cold butter and flour together, add seasoning, sugar and cold water one tablespoon at a time until the dough is soft and bendy but doesn’t stick to your fingers. Press the dough onto the bottom and sides of a pie pan or several small individual pie pans, and refrigerate.

Peel and slice the apples very thinly. Melt the butter in a saucepan and let it brown for a few minutes. Add sugar, rum and finally the apples, mixing and cooking on medium heat for a few minutes. Add corn starch and seasoning and continue cooking for about five mintues, until the apples have softened.

Fill the pie crust with the apple filling and bake in 180°C / 350°F for 45 minutes, until the crust browns a bit in the sides. Serve warm, preferably with greek yogurt and honey!
