I made it for Mother's Day. As a tribute to my mother and because here we love her recipes always.
Hope all moms had a nice day. We made this apple pie and lemon pie that was great. It was super entertaining. My daughter made the Lemon Pie.
A hug and I appreciate your love and visits
Those who know me well know usually I say what I think.
I am sorry that I have not visited so much my friends I hope to catch up now, I have been a little sad and tired with everything that happens today right here (we are in the pick of the disease) and it depresses me to see that so little progress and so many people is so sick .
I hope to visit you this week.Hugs

5 large apples cored, peeled cut in small cubes (fuji , granny Smith or golden delicious)
1 apple peeled, cored in slices
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of water
4 lady fingers biscuits
3 cups all purpose flour
Butter 130 grams
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 to 5 tablespoons of warm milk
One yolk and milk for brush the tart (optative)
Apples from my yard
For the apple filling, peel and cut apples in slices or chunks and cook in a saucepan, with 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water (like a compote), cook over medium heat always stirring with a wooden spoon until they are cooked and dry.
Let cool while preparing the tart crust.
On the kitchen table put the flour forming a crown, add the butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the yolks , the sugar and baking powder.
Add the milk a bit at a time,and mix until the dough starts to come together, you have to develop a feel how much to use.
Divide dough in two pieces one lightly larger than the other.
Shape into 2 round flat discs and refrigerate by 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 °F (180 ° C) Remove the dough from refrigerator and leave for a few minutes to soften slightly.
On a lightly floured work surface roll the larger pastry disk into a circle for a pie dish (24cm or 10 inches).
Make crumbs with the lady fingers biscuits and spread over the dough already placed.
Fill with the mixture of cooked apples and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Over this mixture add the other apple in slices .
Sprinkle other biscuits and cover withe remaining dough.
Press a fork all around the edge to seal or crimp with the rounded edge of a table knife pressed against your index finger. With the fork make some holes in the top of the pie.
Brush the top with a mix of yolk and some milk and bake about 40 - 45 minutes or until looks golden brown.
Transfer to a cooling rack and let settle for at least 20 minutes before serving.
You can serve with vanilla Ice cream or whipped cream.
