- 2 Lbs of Apples for the Apple Sauce
- 2 extra apples, sliced
- 1 Pie crust
- Butter & Flour for the Pie dish
- Vanilla extract (powder)
Slice 2 Lbs of Apples.
In a pot, combine ½ cup of water and the sliced apples. Cook under low-medium heat. Stir until the apple is soft. This process should take approximately 10-15 minutes. With a fork, mash the apples to make a crunchy Apple Sauce.
Make your own pie crust following my grandmother’s recipe or buy a pie crust at the store.
Make your own Apple Sauce following my grandmother's recipe (see above).
In a tart dish, butter and sprinkle flour at the bottom to avoid the pie crust to stick. Then, spread the pie crust. Make a few holes using a fork in the crust.
Spread your Apple Sauce at the bottom of the crust. Top it off with thin slices of apples all over.
Sprinkle sugar and vanilla powder on top of the apple slices. The quantity is really up to your taste. Make sure it is thinly and evenly spread out. (Note: for this recipe, I used ½ tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of powdered vanilla).
Put it in the oven at 400F for about 40 minutes. Let it cool off a little.
You can serve it on its own, or with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream. It is delicious either way and a perfect French dessert!
