Apple-Crumble Pie

some apples
some potato or corn flower
150 g/1,5 dl butter
200 g/3 dl flour (I usually mix wheat and dinkel)
200 g/ 3 dl sugar (brown or white, whatever you prefer)
100 g/1,5 dl nuts (best is almonds and/or hazelnuts)
1 egg
a pinch of cinnamon

1) Base: Mix 50 g/0,5 dl of the butter (really smooth), half the flour, half the sugar and the egg and shape the dough into a dish (should be one finger thick, left over dough could be frozen and used another time).

2) Filling: Cut some apples into pieces and put them on top of the dough (as many fruits as the base is covered). Sift some potato or corn flower of the fruits (to make them less liquid).

3) Crumble: Mix the rest of the flour and sugar with the nuts and some cinnamon. Melt the rest of the butter and pour it slowly over the mixture and make little crumbs. Bake in preheated oven with medium heat for around 25 minutes (baking time depends, so check regularly).

Apple Tiramisu

5-6 apples

IMG_4878Chop apples in small pieces. Boil the apples with sugar (keep 2 tbsp), cinnamon stick and as much water as to cover the bottom of the pot for about 15 minutes. Whip egg yolks with sugar until light and fluffy. Add the mascarpone to the egg mixture and stir until all the lumps have disappeared. Add the apple-sugar mixture. Dip the ladyfingers shortly in amaretto (or apple juice). Make now layers of alternately ladyfingers and apple mixture. First row is apples, last is apple mixture. Sift cinnamon powder on top.
