Polish Style Apple Pie

Submitted by Kasia Niedzwiedzka

Crust Dough:
400g (3 1/5 c.) flour
120g (about 1 c.) powdered sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
180g butter (a bit less than two sticks)
2 egg yolks
2 Tbsp. sour cream

Knead everything together.  Separate the dough into two pieces - 3/4 and 1/4 - and put in the fridge for 1 1/2 hours. Then I grate the dough on a grater.

Apple Filling:
6 to 8 apples, peeled and cleaned inside
Cinnamon, as you like - usually about 1 tsp.
Sugar, as you like - I don't add
Raisins and nuts, as you like

Cut apples into pieces (ten per apple). Simmer them with about 1 c. water until soft and mashed (you can leave small pieces). Add cinnamon as you like (usually around 1 tsp.), sugar as you like (I don't add any), raisins and nuts, as you like.

Egg White Foam:
2 egg whites
3 Tbsp. powdered sugar

Beat together.

Layer 3/4 of the dough, then the apples, then foam, then rest of the dough in a 9x9 pan. Bake around 45-55 minutes at 350 F degrees until golden brown.
