Filling preparation method

  1. Peel the apples, cut them into thin slices and spray with lemon juice. Reserve.

  4. Mix the remaining sugar with the vanile sugar and sprinkle over the apple slices.

  2. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  3. Remove the mold with the apple from the heat and, without letting it cool, cover with the dough.
  4. Run the rolling pin around the edges of the pan to cut off any excess.
  5. Let the dough naturally cover the filling, without sticking to the edges of the pan.
  6. Make holes in the surface of the dough with the tip of a knife and bake until baked.
  7. After this time, cover with aluminum foil and leave for another 10 minutes in the oven.

Mom Tips

To unmold easily: When removing from the oven, place the hot pan on a wet napkin. Place the mold on the stove for a few moments, long enough for the caramel to begin to melt. Unmold into a large ovenproof dish.

Lemon juice prevents the apple from oxidizing; getting dark.

Approximate yield of 8 servings.
