Apple Pie – Milopita


  • Wash, peel and core the apples.
  • Slice the apples from the center out into thin slices and place in a bowl with water and a squeeze of lemon to prevent them from browning.

  • Place in a mixer 1/2 a cup of the butter and 1 cup of white sugar and beat well until is smooth.
  • While beating the butter and sugar, alternately add the egg yolks and flour mixture 1 tbsp at a time.
  • Add the rest of the flour alternately adding the milk in stages as well.
  • Add the vanilla extract and lemon rind and mix until the mixture is smooth.
  • Butter the sides of a round baking dish and pour in the beaded mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites and dip the apple slices in it.
  • Arrange the apple slices on the outer ring of the baking dish side by side pushing them half way into the mixture.
  • Arrange the rest of the slices in the middle of the pie.
  • Melt the remaining 1/4 cup of butter; add the brown sugar and powder cinnamon and stir to mix.

  • Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 60 minutes.
