Mini apple pie deluxe recipe
Mini apple pie deluxe recipe is my first apple pie blog online. This is a medium size pie with buttersauce. When this pie is ready, I cut this apple pie in 4 pieces! My standard Dutch apple pies contain Vienna dough. This apple pie does not need special treatment dough like Vienna dough. When this dough is ready, you can start this recipe right away! I recommend for this recipe pastry flour (type 00 flour) and butter. Over the years I have baked so many apple pies and different type of apple pies. My apple pies are Dutch style which means, you need good quality of butter and flour. For this recipe you need a 7 inch ring without bottom. These rings don’t look like the regular springform baking pans. When you can find a 7 or 8 inch ring, this recipe will fit perfect!

All my apple pies are a mix of Jonagold apples, mixed raisins with cranberries on Calvados brandy. This gives my mixed raisins with cranberry a special flavor. The last part is to flavor my apples with raisins and cranberries. For this I am using Dutch apple pie spices. During the years I have created this mix on my own and it smells like gingerbread. In the future our catering service will offer Dutch apple pie spices online. For this recipe you can use cinnamon.

The bottom of the dough needs almond flour or bread crumbs. This is to absorb the butter sauce. Then I can finish the pie with apple pie mix.
