That I love Autumn there is no doubt. And that there is no coincidence in between the color of the leaves and baked pies. No coincidence at all. It is meant to be. Autumn = pies.
Anyway, last Friday I cooked some balkan ‘fusion’ cuisine where the Bosnian burek met the Romanian cartofi taraneşti and I got some filo pastry left.
Meaning almond-apple-strudel-pie. An invention; very good.
You mix half a cup of chopped almonds (found mine in Lidl for 89 cents) with a grated Apple, cinnamon, sugar according to one’s taste and a bit of honey. You spread the mixture on the filo pastry, roll it and place it on a baking tray. Since the filo pastry is super thin, you only need to bake it for 15 min or up until it turns out golden and crispy. I used oil to brush mine and sprinkled some brown sugar on top.
Let me tell you, if you want Autumn smell in your hour in under 30 min, this is the to-go recipe.
And the taste? Baked Apple, caramelized sugar and flaky dough?? And cinnamon??
