this is really the time of the year to eat apple pie, this is my favorite recipe for an old fashioned dutch apple pie.image: colin cooke

350 gr. flour
250 gr. butter + some extra 
175 gr. sugar + some extra
6-8 apples, depending on their size
salt, 1/2 tsp

place butter and sugar and salt  in a bowl.
cut the butter in the flour mixture with to knives into small cubes.
knead with 2 hands until it forms a ball, wrap in plastic foil and refrigerate. 
peel the apples and cut into small cubes.
butter a 23 cm springform with the extra butter.
heat the oven to 180 Âșc.
line the bottom and sides of the springform with 2/3 of the dough.
add half of the apples, spread them out evenly on the bottom and sprinkle with some sugar and cinnamon, add the rest of the apples and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon again.
on a lightly floured surface roll the remaining dough with your hands into strips and layer them over the apples to form a raster, cover no more then 3/4 of the apples, you still want to see them. 
finish with a large stripe along the side of the springform.
bake in the oven for 1 hour or until golden brown.
let the pie cool completely before removing the springform.
serve with whipped cream.
