Apple pie with almonds
98 - -
A recipe from the Internet. Author Elena Pokrovskaya. Usually the first time I make the dish strictly according to the recipe, and then make adjustments, but in this recipe I was immediately alarmed by the fact that the Apple filling is not added to any binder. The author suggested raw apples just to mix with the sauce. I decided to modify the recipe. To begin with, to apples not darkened, while I cut, I added the juice and zest of lemon. Then I did some prevarila apples in the sauce, and the sauce was zapustila starch. But it was not enough, when cutting the apples still fell out of the pie. The taste is of course not affected, but... aesthetically looked bad. I strive for perfection. So I will think more on this recipe, because the cake is delicious and worthy to appear periodically on the table.
