    Tahini Apple Pie


    Here it is guys, my apple pie recipe with the caramel sauce made with Cortas Amazing Tahini. The Tahini caramel is a special twist to this traditional dessert, it's nutty and sweet yet has a little salty taste that makes it yummy and addictive. It's so precious to me because i grew up eating this dessert Mom used to make, and now that i finally mastered the way to baking it, it taste just like the one my mother makes. Happy cooking!




    For the base:

    • 3 cups of flouwer
    • 1 cup cold butter
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 cup ice water


    For the filling:

    • 10 apples Juice of 1 lemon
    • ½ tbsp cinnamon
    • 4 tbsp honey
    • 1 tbsp corn flour


    For the caramel sauce:

    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 4 tbsp butter
    • ¼ cup cream
    • 1 cup cortas tahini
    • 1 egg
    • Sprinkle of sugar



    Mix the flower, cold butter, small pinch of salt in a food processor and pinch until it crumbles.

    Add ice water and mix until it forms a ball.

    Roll the dough, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30mns.

    Start preparing the filling by peeling, coring and slicing the apples (do not slice them too thin).

    Cook the apples for about 5 mns with the lemon juice, cinnamon, honey and a pinch of salt.

    Remove the apples, add corn flour to their cooking sauce, whisk it until it slightly thickens then pour over the cooked apples and set aside to cool.

    Meanwhile make your caramel sauce: mix the sugar, butter, cream and tahini with a pinch of salt, over the fire for about 5mns.

    Take your dough out of the fridge, cut in half, and roll it out on a flour surface.

    Roll each part alone, flipping it over as you go, to ensure consistent thickness.

    Transfer one part of your rolled dough into your pie dish to make the base.

    Poke it with a fork before filling it with the apple mixture.

    Cover with the second part, press at the edges to close and cut the excess off with a knife (make sure you open holes before decorating it).

    Brush with one egg, and sprinkle with sugar before cooking at 375 degrees for 30

    45 mns until golden brown.Serve with the tahini sauce and enjoy.
