Apple Pie

How it's made: 

I found this recipe in a Burda magazine from the 80s. I added a bit from myself and the result was four small and succulent apple pies.

Cover the bottom and sides of the baking form with puff pastry. In this case, I am using 4 small ceramic dishes. Pierce the dough at the bottom with a fork, to avoid puff bubbles while baking. Refrigerate while preparing the filling.

For the filling:

Peel and seed the apples. Slice into halves. With a sharp knife, make ¼ inch deep cuts, shaping small cubes. Beat the cream cheese with ½ cup sugar. Mix the almonds with cinnamon, cardamom and the remaining sugar. In each dish, spread cream cheese mix, arrange apple pieces on top and then sprinkle with a mixture of crushed almonds, sugar and spices. Coat the apple pieces with butter, sprinkle with a pinch of sugar and insert in a preheated oven to 200 ℃/425℉. Bake about 35 minutes.

Shopping list: 
1 package puff pastry
4-5 apples
150 g crushed almonds
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
100 g cream cheese
50 g butter
