The girls have been urging me to make apple pie for quite sometime but due to my laziness I have ignored their request.   While shopping at Carrefour saw apple pies on sale but cost $7 for one, which is quite expensive.  Instead of buying one went to the fruits section and pick up some green apples to make pie.

Make the dough and leave it in the fridge for 20 mins (The pastry recipe was from Dorie Greenspan cookbook "Baking From My Home To Yours").  Cut up 3 apples to stew with brown sugar and cinnamon till soft.  Cut another 2 more apples into thin slices and sprinkle with lemon juice and set aside.   Roll out dough and put into the pie pan.  Prick the bottom of the pie with fork.   Line parchment paper on top of pie and scatter beans over.  Bake in the oven till pie is half baked.

Sprinkle almond meal over the pie and pour in the stewed apples.  Decorate the top with apple slices till filled.  Spread a layer of honey over the apples.

Put the pie back into the oven and bake till apples are caramelized.

Forgot to photograph the pie till half eaten as it was too delicious
