~ Ingredients ~





1/4 cup brown sugar
10 tbsps white refined sugar (for the dough)
4 tbsps white refined sugar (for the mixture)
1 cup white flour
1 cup maize flour ("Amido de milho" - Maizena)
1 egg
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 medium apples (peeled and sliced)
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup pecans (chopped) - optional

~ How to prepare ~

Mix the maize, the white flour, the white sugar, the salt, the egg and the butter. Work with the dough until it becomes smooth.

Here is a picture of the maize flour I use.

Spread butter in a pie plate (or use vegetable cooking spray instead).

Cover the pie plate with part the dough, streching it a little towards the edges (you will fill it with the apple mixture later) and bake it in the oven (low heat) for about 40 min. Save a small part of this dough to make stripes that will cover the pie later.

Remove it from the oven a little before it starts to beome golden brown and make a few holes on the dough with a fork.

In a bowl, mix the cinnamon and 4 tablespoons of white sugar. Add the sliced apples to the sugar mixture. Mix it with a combination of honey and brown sugar and stir in raisins. Mix. Gently put this apple mixture on the pre-baked dough.

Cover it with thin stripes made with the rest of the dough making vertical and horizontal lines, pressing them gently against each other and on the edges, so they won't fall appart when you cut the pie. Spread a lightly beaten egg yolk on these stripes with the help of a brush.

Bake it for some more minutes, until the stripes on top are golden brown.
