As the weather here gets warmer, I am reminded of the European winter season full of performances, when many Europeans visit the opera houses and ballet performances dressed in their best clothes. On one of my visits to Hungary, I also had the privilege of visiting the breathtaking opera house in the heart of Budapest. I watched the opera La bohème and at intermission I was delighted by samples of fine Austro-Hungarian cakes and pastries.

The following recipe for this apple pie is wintery, covered in white meringue like a skirt of a delicate prima ballerina or like soft snow clouds. It is based on layers of apples that caramelize with brown sugar in the oven. In the picture the Nappa Bering pie is 20 cm in diameter and 6 cm high, you can play with the amount of layers according to the size of your pan. So what if it's already hot, for a stunning apple pie, you don't need winter weather.

Method of preparation

How do you make apple pie and meringue?

  • 1 Prepare the dough: Put all the ingredients in a food processor with a metal blade with the butter cubes on top and process in pulses for a minute or two' only until you get a smooth dough (you can also use a mixer or your hands - for a crunchydough guide).

  • 2Flatten the dough lightly (preferably into a rounded shape, which will be easier to work with later) and wrap in plastic wrap. Cool for two hours in the fridge.

  • 3Preheat oven to a temperature of 170 degrees.

  • 4Roll out the dough leaf that has cooled in the meantime to a thickness of 5-7 mm and line the bottom of the pan and the edges to the edge, evenly. Lightly prick the bottom with a fork.

  • 5Place baking paper on top of the dough and legumes on top to create a weight. Make sure that the legumes reach the top edge of the dough to prevent sagging during baking.

  • Bake for about 6 minutes at 15 degrees Celsius. At the end of baking, remove from the oven and cool for about 170 minutes. Remove the weight only after cooling.

  • 7Prepare the filling:Peel the apples, cut in half and remove their cores. Slice each half into slices 2-3 mm thick and put in a bowl with ice water and a little lemon juice. Drain well and dry with a paper towel.

  • 8Sprinkle the bottom of the baked dough that has cooled with a little cinnamon and nutmeg and place a third of the sliced apple segments on top of the bulk. Sprinkle over demerara sugar. Bake about 5-7 in the center of an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius and take out.

  • 9Repeat the action indicated in the previous section two more times: again sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg, place over another layer of apples that will coat the bottom layer, sprinkle sugar and bake, so that there are three layers baked and caramelized (note that the top layer is closer to the top of the oven and can take less time to be ready).

  • 10Prepare the meringue:In parallel with baking in stages, beat the proteins while gradually sprinkling the sugar. Achieve a firm and strong meringue texture.

  • 11After baking all the layers of apples, remove from the oven and drizzle the meringue immediately. Return the cake to the oven and bake on top for about 5 minutes until the meringue browns.

  • 12Remove and let rest for half an hour.

  • 13If preparing a ring or spring pan, gently extract and sprinkle cinnamon powder on top. Slice and eat accompanied by a hot drink.
