Autumn, my favorite season. The clothing, the atmosphere, the food,… Everything but the weather 😉 But on the other hand, when it’s rainy outside, isn’t that the best excuse to bake a lovely pie and have a cosy day in? And what’s more perfect than a pie that doesn’t need much preparations and is so simple yet super delicious? If you like all that just like me, than this post is gonna make your day!
You might remember that I have a couple autumn addictions: cinnamon, ginger and Biscoff cookies. Add some apple slices to this and you almost already have a pie! That’s how simple it can be. The first time I made this pie I used vegan puff pastry for the dough. Earlier this week I found another dough in the supermarket, especially for pie, which was also vegan! It’s a bit similar to puff pastry, but a little less flaky. In the picture below you can see which dough I used (from Albert Heijn, a Dutch supermarket). Of course you can also still use puff pastry, because that works out fine as well.
I chose to work with two layers of thin apple slices. This caused it to be a very thin pie, even a bit like a pizza 🙂 I liked it that way, but if you prefer a thicker pie, you can also cut the apple into cubes, or use more apple slices. You can also add some raisins, or even some fresh ginger chunks. There’s a lot of room for variety, even though it’s such a simple pie 🙂 And that’s what I like about it so much!
As you might have noticed, this recipe perfectly fits in my “simple baking” category. You only need seven ingredients, you don’t really need to prepare much, it’s perfect for several occasions and literally everyone can make it 🙂 Enjoy this pie with your friends, family or all by yourself. If it’s for a party, for when you have visitors over, or just on a cosy day on the couch under a blankie… This lovely pie will be your perfect match! Enjoy!
- What do you need?
– 1 roll of vegan pie dough or puff pastry
– 1 to 2 apples
– 10 Biscoff cookies
– 3 tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)
– Ginger powder
– Cane sugar
- How do you make it?
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Crunch the Biscoff cookies, add the coconut oil and mix through. Take the dough out of the fridge and let it adjust to room temperature while you cut the apple(s) into slices. Put the dough in a spring form pan and puncture some holes in it with a fork. Spread the Biscoff-crunch out over the dough. Add a first layer of apple slices and sprinkle some cinnamon and ginger powder over it. Add a second layer of apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon and ginger powder again. (If you’ve used two apples, repeat two times more.) Finish off with some cane sugar. Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes.
Sit back and enjoy with a hot cup of cocoa! 🙂
