How to cook Lenten Apple Mini Pie step by step with photos

For the filling: Wash and dry raisins and apples.

Peel and core the apples, cut into 4 parts, remove the seeds and cut into thin slices.

In a saucepan mix the sliced apples, raisins, cinnamon, brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of water. Bring everything to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat until the apples are soft. It took me about 10 minutes.

Let the stuffing cool completely, and in the meantime make the dough. For the dough: mix the flour, sugar and salt.

Add sunflower oil TM Oleina.

Let's begin kneading the dough, so as to obtain a crumb. (As if rubbing the butter into the flour).

Next, begin to add cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time. You need enough water to be able to gather the dough into a clump. I needed 4 tablespoons of water. Wrap the lump of dough in clingfilm and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

We divide the cooled dough into four parts. We leave one portion for further work, cover the rest of the dough and put it into the fridge.

That's the kind of dough I got. It looks flaky. The pans (I have ceramic ones) we grease with sunflower oil, put a small circle of baking paper on the bottom.

Roll out the dough as thin as possible (about 2 mm), cut out a circle of a size that will line the base and the sides of the mold, with the edges of the pastry should hang down from the mold. Trim the rest of the rolled out pastry with a knife so it forms a rectangle and cut into thin strips.

Put a circle of dough into the prepared mold, slightly pressing it to the bottom and sides of the mold. Spread the dough evenly inside the mold, leaving the edges of the dough hanging down for now. Fill the dough with the cooled filling all the way to the top of the mold. I tamped the filling a little more, so it would be a lot! :) I didn't use the liquid that was left over from stewing the apples so the dough wouldn't become "clumpy".

And now the fun part - weaving! We take a few strips of dough and lay them out parallel to each other, at a small distance.

Let's fold back every other strip of dough and place another strip of dough perpendicularly to the center of the mold. Let's put the previously folded strips back in place, covering the central strip.

Now let's fold back the strips that we haven't touched yet (also every other strip). Put a second perpendicular strip of dough at some distance. Let's put the bent strips back in place.

Repeat the steps until the surface of the ration is completely covered by the braid. It's not very well explained, but I hope it's understandable, thanks to the photo-steps! :) Using a fork "seal" the edges of the solder, so that the weave was well fixed on the base.

Here is such a pretty boy! We make the other cakes in the same way. We put the cake tin in the fridge for 45 minutes. Heat up the oven at 200-205 degrees.

Do not grease the surface of the pies. Bake in heated oven for first 10 minutes at 200-205 degrees, then lower heat to 190 degrees and bake pies for 25-30 minutes more or until golden brown. Depending on the width of the strips and the distance between them, the wicker looks different.
