Inspired from a French classic, the “Tarte Tatin”, this apple and walnut pie is a perfect test for beginners. The crust is made out of puff pastry, so you will just have to line it on the baking tray. Next, add the ingredients on the crust and let the heat of the oven do its magic.

How to Cook Apple and Walnut Pie

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar and pour the apple juice.
  2. Leave it on heat until the sugar melts, and small bubbles appear on the surface. Slowly stir with a wooden spatula in the process.
  3. Add the butter and the vanilla extract. Again, slowly stir until the butter has melted.
  4. Peel the apples and remove their inside. After that, slice them.
  5. Evenly spread them into the pan. Simmer them for around 40 minutes, until tender, over medium-low heat.
  6. Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F/180 degrees C.
  7. Lay the puff pastry on the bottom of a cast-iron skillet, fully covering its bottom and sides.
  8. Slice off the excess pastry.
  9. Pour the apple and caramel mix into the skillet.
  10. Slide the skillet into the oven for the next 25 minutes.
  11. Top it with powdered sugar and walnuts.
