Hey, there it is, it's the big day. I told you about it here this month, it is I who host battle food. So for the occasion, I really wanted to put the small dishes in the big ones and surpass myself in photography.

But I also wanted to show that we can do original things and think outside the box for Christmas, without using expensive products such as foie gras or scallops. That's why I'm offering you apple pie cookies for this edition # 47!

* Ingredients :

° 2 canadian apples
° 1 tbsp cornstarch
° 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
° 1 tablespoon of white sugar (depends on the acidity of your apples)
° 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
Sweet dough
° 100 g butter
° 50 g icing sugar
° 200 g flour
° 2 g of salt
° 40 g of eggs
° 15 g ground almonds
° 1 egg for the gilding

* Instructions :

+Dough :
Make the dough by mixing the butter and icing sugar. Add the flour and salt and mix well. Finish with the egg and ground almonds. Knead until the dough is well combined and make a pancake about 2 cm thick that we film and let cool for 30 minutes in the fridge.
Peel the apples and cut them into large squares. Cook over low heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add the 2 sugars, maple syrup and cornstarch. Mix well and cook for about 20 minutes so that the compote thickens well. Let cool for twenty minutes.
Divide the dough into 2/3 1/3 and roll out two-thirds thinly. Cut rounds 5-6 cm in diameter. Put a spoonful of compote well in the middle of the circle. With a brush, put a wipe of water around the edge.
With the rest of the dough, cut into strips. Braid by alternating assembly (once above and once below) and cover the compote. Merge well on the outside and brown with egg.
Cook for 20 minutes at 180 ° C (the dough must be well colored).

Enjoy !
