Thursday; Apple pie;

Apple pie,  the universal  sweet pastry nobody ever says, no thank you.  Apple pie  comes in any version. You can let your fantasy run or you can rely on the good old  varieties. 
This one I baked quickly for an afternoon tea.
I still had some butter puff pastry in the freezer which I used for the base.
A good hand full ground almonds, apples peeled and cut in thin slices arranged over the base.
Tuck  some blobs   of raspberry jam between the apples. 
Mix half a cup of cream with a little sugar,  vanilla and  1 teaspoon cornflour, pour over the apples. Into the oven at 180 C until nicely crisp and the apples are soft, around 30 min. 

Easy as pie and done in no time! It is really tasty, but my favourite of them all is Tarte Tatin, which is also very easy to produce and fresh from the oven, slightly cooled with a decadent blob of whipped more to be said.
