OMG this was awesome.  I wasn’t sure it was going to work out as my dough seemed very sticky (added more flour when putting in pie pan) but it turned out great. This recipe creates 2 kuchen – the apples were delicious and the crust was browned nicely (I used a stoneware pie pan)!

PG 37, from Company’s Coming – Breads cookbook

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 cooking apples, cored peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS (paraphrased)

  1. combine 1st 3 ingredients in cup and let sit 10 min to activate the yeast
  2. combine next 4 ingredients in a bowl and then add yeast mixture and blend
  3. add first amount of flour and the egg and blend
  4. add the second amount of the flour and blend well
  5. cover and chill in fridge for 2 hours then divide dough into 2 portions
  6. press into greased 9×9 inch pie pans and press dough up sides of pan
  7. lay slices of apples on pie crust then top with melted butter
  8. mix cinnamon and sugar together then sprinkle on tops of pies
  9. bake at 375 for 35 minutes – it may seems “watery” in the middle of your pie but that is just the sugar melted.
