Swedish Apple Pie Recipe (as requested)
We had a wonderful (though very quick) trip this weekend. It was a lot of driving coming so soon after our return from Italy but we were so happy to be together with lots of family for a day. I wish it wasn't such a long drive to get there...
Several people asked for the Swedish Apple Pie recipe, so tonight this is a food blog! I searched for a photo of the pie. I am sure that I have taken one at some time but I must not have titled it properly and it is too late to keep searching for the photos. I'll add the photo of the finished pie to the post when I find it.
Here is the recipe - simple and delicious!
5 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, mixed together
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Butter or spray pie pan (8 or 9 inch) and fill 2/3 full with apple slices.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mixture on top of the apples.
Melt butter, add sugar and egg and mix well.
Add flour and nuts, pour over apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (until apples are cooked and pie is golden brown)
Tomorrow I will cut out some of my Apple Picking titles and designs and get some pages done.
