DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl combine the flour, butter, egg yolk, a splash of milk and sugar. Knead all ingredients to a firm dough. Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile prepare the topping dough: beat egg yolks with sugar until light and foamy. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg white mixture and flour alternately into the yolk mixture.
  • Roll short-crust dough on a lightly floured counter to a rectangle the size of the parchment paper lined baking pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with the dough, tap with fingers into place.
  • Evenly cover the dough with grated apples, sprinkle with brown sugar, lemon zest, ground cinnamon and rum.
  • Top the apples with the light topping dough and bake the pie in the oven at 200°C for about 45 minutes.
  • Cool the pie in the baking pan, cut into equal sized square pieces and dust with powdered sugar (optional).
