As soon as the cold hits, we’re all happier to stay at home, and maybe even turn on our ovens to make something warm and comforting, and especially sweet! And when the rain hits, and the days are shorter, there’s nothing better than an apple pie!

For those who have no time to spare

If you barely have any time to eat, let alone bake yourself an apple pie, don’t worry, you can fulfill that need of comfort with our Vegan Cookies with Apples. These cookies are made with a unique variety of apples, Morgenduft, which in German means ‘morning fragrance’. It’s a red apple with a delicate aroma and a sweet and sour taste, which is perfect to make preserves and juices, and ideal to fit in the wholemeal and spelt dough of our cookies. A tea and three Vegan Cookies with Apples will make your day…

For those who have time to spare

If instead, you are eager to knead some dough, here’s a fast and simple recipe for an apple pie.

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 g of sugar
  • 50 g of butter
  • ½ a glass of milk
  • 180 g of flour
  • 1 small bag of yeast
  • a pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Turn on the oven and set it at 180°C.
  2. Beat the whites, and set them aside. Beat the yolks with the sugar.
  3. Melt the butter in a small pot, and add half of it to the yolks. Set aside the rest of the melted butter.
  4. Add to the blend of yolks, sugar and butter the following: flour, milk, yeast, and salt.
  5. Once everything is blended together, add the beaten whites, delicately mixing with a wooden spoon.
  6. Put the blend into a tray layered with some baking paper.
  7. Slice the apples and stick them vertically on top of the cake, making sure they look  like a sunburst. Leave the centre of the cake without any apples, as this is the part that takes the longest to bake.
  8. Pour the rest of the melted butter on the cake, and sprinkle on top of the cake 3 or 4 spoons of sugar.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes.

Happy baking and happy autumn!
