      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Add both flours, sugar and custard powder to the TM bowl and mix 3 seconds/speed 7.
  2. Add butter, egg yolk, vanilla and 2 tablespoons of water and mix 6 seconds/speed 6. Then knead Dough mode 1 min 30 secs, adding the extra water towards the end if the dough is not coming together
  3. Pat dough into a flat disc, wrap with plastic wrap or thermo mat and place in the fridge to rest for approx 30 minutes
  4. Filling
  5. To prepare the caramel sauce place butter and flour into TM bowl and cook at 60 degrees/speed 2 for 2 minutes to form a paste
  6. Add water, both sugars, vanilla and spices and cook 100 degrees/speed 2 for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool
  7. Without washing TM bowl (you're welcome) add 500g water and the apples and cook 100 degrees/speed 1 Counter-clockwise operation/ for 10 minutes with MC on. Apples should be soft but not mushy. Drain apples into a bowl and stir most of the caramel sauce through, reserving approx 1/4 cup for the crust
  8. Roll out 2/3 pastry onto baking paper or thermomat and then place into pie dish (I find it easier to flip the paper or thermomat over the top of the pie dish, the pastry is quite forgiving and can be pushed into shape). Coat the inside of the crust with the egg white (optional) and then blind bake at 180 degrees for approx 10 minutes
  9. Add the filling and roll out the rest of the pastry onto the baking paper or thermomat to place over the filling. Seal the edges and then brush the pastry with the reserved caramel sauce and bake at 160 degrees (fan forced) until the crust is golden, approx 40 minutes

    Made this tonight. Dough needed two extra tablespoons of water to come together. A delicious and very indulgent pie. Apples were cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious.
