Fall recipes continue! This year, we have been blessed with apples and since the name of this blog is Something Different, I have decided to make something different this week, too. Usual apple pie is really delicious, but what if I made it even more delicious by adding chocolate in it? Chocolate is always a good choice, and I must say these two flavours complete each other very well.
Ingredients (for 28 cm round baking tray)
The cocoa cookie crust:
- 340 g flour
- 120 g sugar
- 225 g butter
- 7 g baking powder
- 85 g cocoa powder
- 2 eggs
The apple-chocolate filling
- 6 larger apples
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 100 g chocolate
Knead the dough from all the ingredients listed for crust. Put it in fridge for about half an hour to rest.
Prepare the baking tray. Grease it with butter and slightly cover with flour.
Wash the apples, peel them and grate in thin slices. Cover them with sugar and put them away for some time.
Take the dough out of the fridge. Cover the bottom of the baking tray with it and make an edge, high for about 3 cm.
Pour away the juice the apples have left. Take half of them and arrange them on the dough. Melt the chocolate and pour it on apples.
Take the rest of the apples and arrange them on top of all this.
Use the remaining dough to make the top crust. You can try hard and make your crust like this (it took me half an hour – no previous experience) or simply grate it.
Bake the pie for 25 minutes on 180° C. Enjoy the chocolate apple pie!
