Pie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons ice water
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Filling

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 7 medium apples, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons butter, diced
  • 1/2 Cup of almonds and walnuts

Prepare the dough by combing all the ingredients mentioned above. Mix until the dough resembles coarse cornmeal. Then add the cold water until the dough comes together. Finally wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 25 minutes .

While the dough is chilling use the time to prepare the filling. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl . Put the filling aside, and roll your dough out.

Line the bottom of the pie pan, or tarte shell, then add the filling. Save a piece of the dough to create a top for the pie or you can bake it without a top.

The pie will bake at 375 for 50 to 60 minutes . Before placing the pie in the oven, brush the top with an egg wash.

To make the egg wash you will need to beat an egg with 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar . Brush the mixture on top of the pie and bake.

Serve the pie with ice cream and Enjoy.
