Easy Apple Pie Recipe
Nothing tastes better than freshly baked apple pie!
My great grandma's easy apple pie recipe tastes delicious, but my mum hated getting sticky fingers while kneading the dough. The buttery mixture reacted to the warmth of her hands and began to stick to them. Another reason that called for an adjustment was the left-over egg white.
is a reduced amount of butter and a whole egg instead of only half. A
reduction in butter makes the resulting pastry less
temperature-sensitive while forming the pie liner.
