Print Recipe
Serves: 10 pieces Cooking Time: 2 hours


  • 10 Jonagold apples
  • 2 el ground cinnamon
  • 250 gr unsalted butter
  • 200 gr white sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 gr vanilla sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 400 gr self-raising flour



Preheat the oven to 180 °C.


Line the bottom of a spring form pan with baking paper and grease the edges with butter.


Peel the apples, remove the cores and cut them into tin slices. Add the cinnamon and stir well. Set aside.


Beat butter (room temperature), sugar, vanilla sugar and salt with a mixer to a fluffy batter.


Add half of the egg and mix to an even batter. Add the baking flour and beat until it forms a sturdy dough.


Cover the bottom and side of spring form pan with half of the dough. You'll need a rolling pin for this to flatten the dough.


Add all of the apple slices into the spring form pan.


Dust a flat surface with flour and roll out the remains of the dough, about ½ cm thick.


Cut out 8 strips of 1 ½ cm wide. Lay the dough strips in a checkered pattern over the apple filling.


Whisk the remaining egg and brush over the dough strips.


Bake the pie for 1 ½ hours in the middle of the oven.


You can make the apple pie 1 day in advance. Keep it covered in the refrigerator.
