Caramel Apple Walnut Pie

Equipment

  • 26 cm diameter pie dish

Ingredients
  

  • 300 g shortbread dough (see the shortbread dough recipe)
  • 4 apples
  • 30 g butter
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 200 g walnut
  • 30 g salted butter
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 20 cl whole liquid cream

Instructions
 

  • For this caramel apple walnut pie, I use a 26 cm diameter metal ring that we need to grease with a piece of butter.
  • Knead the dough, then roll out the dough with a rolling pin to obtain a thickness of 3 mm and a surface wide enough. Don’t forget to flour the working area.
  • Flour the top of the dough before winding it around the rolling pin and place it softly on the metal ring.
  • Push the dough to the bottom, and make an 1 cm edge all around by pressing the dough onto the metal ring.
  • With a rolling pin, remove the surplus of dough.
  • Straighten the edge by pinching the dough with your fingers against the metal ring. Slide your nail all around to ease the unmoulding after the baking.
  • Place the dough in a refrigerator for about 1 hour, then cover the dough with a baking sheet then filling it with ceramic balls or peas.
  • Bake the pie for 15 min in a 200°C preheated oven.
  • Peel 3 apples, remove the center, then cut them in pieces not too small.
  • Grind the nuts in a container.
  • Melt the butter in a pan, add the apple pieces and the brown sugar. Mix everything and let it cook for 5 min. After, remove from the heat source and leave it aside.
  • In a pan, pour the liquid cream, add the salted butter and boil the whole. Then leave it aside.
  • Now for the caramel, heat a pan, add some sugar and melt it and take some color. Keep heating the sugar until all of it is melted.
  • Pour the cream still hot on the caramel while whisking.
  • Away from the heating source, add the ground nuts, mix with a spatula before pouring the mixture on the apples. Then, mix softly.
  • Fill the baked dough, make a rose on the top of the pie with the last cut apple.
  • Finish by baking the caramel apple walnut pie in a 180°C oven for 20 min. After, place the pie on a metal grid in order to have an efficient cooling.
