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!

Before I start preparing a recipe, The most important thing is to get the ingredients together. With that I cannot miss an ingredient, then I weigh or measure everything. Over the years of baking, this became my kitchen rule number one. For this recipe I am not using a mixer, only my bare clean hands! (When you prefer a mixer, mix on low and medium speed! see recipe). Mini apple pie deluxe recipe needs a rub dough treatment. Which means, I can use butter on room temperature. This is my only apple pie recipe with room temperature butter. Before I start with preparing dough, I mix flour with a pinch of salt and whisk this with a fork. Then I am start kneading butter with sugar, lemon, lime zest, eggs and vanilla extract. The second and last part is kneading flour with butter mix!


Mini apple pie with soaked raisins



Apple pie mix

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.

After I have finished apple pie filling, I will mix this with butter sauce. This makes apples and raisins more soft and creamy! Butter sauce is a mix of melted butter wit egg yolks, cornstarch and sugar. The last part is to use make a flat piece of dough (1\2 inch thick) and fill the ring with dough. 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. On top  I brush the apple cubes withs apricot jam and I am baking Mini apple pie deluxe recipe in 25 minutes!
