Apple Pie /Tart with Chocolate Chips- Eggless

"An Apple a day keeps the doctor away" Who doesn't know this quote
I had so many apples lying in fridge for a very long long time....I wanted to use them up ..i dint wanna eat them as it is...

So i went through my copy of " The Pleasures of Vegetarian Cooking" by Tarla Dalal

I saw Apple Pie and started preparing the dough...but then i can never stick an recipe..so i prepared the filling in my own way....And it was a Huge hit So sharing it with you all..

So here is the recipe


For the Crust:

Plain Flour/ Maida - 1 cup
Butter - 1/2 cup & 1Tbsp
Cold Water - 2 to 3 Tbsp
Sugar - 1 Tbsp

For the Filling :
Apples - 5
Butter - 2 Tbpn
Milk - 1/2 Cup
Sugar - 1/4 Cup
Vanilla Essence - 1 tspn
Chocolate Chips - 1/4 Cup (Optional)


For the Filling:

Peel, De seed and Cube the apples

In a sauce pan add the butter and saute the apples until the juices come out

Now add in the sugar and saute for a minute

Now pour in the milk and cook until the milk is absorbed and now turn off the heat and add in the vanilla essence, mix well.

For the Crust:

Mix Flour and Sugar in a large bowl

Now add in the Cold Butter and rub into the flour with your finger tips

Gradually add ice cold water and make it into a dough similar to poori dough (Rolling Consistency)

Now divide the dough into two parts

Dust the rolling board with some flour and roll out one part

Cover your pie/tart tin so that the flute tin is covered properly

Now bake the pie/tart for about 8 - 10mins at 150C

Take out the half baked shells and Add in the Filling as well as chocolate chips

cover the filling with the other rolled out dough and prick it with knife

else you can roll out and cut it into strips and make a Crissy cross pattern

Bake it for 12 to 15mins at 180C or until you the Pie/Tart Turns Golden on the Top

Yummy Pie/ Tart is ready
Serve it with Vanilla IceCream

Can you see the chocolate chips peeking ?

I used Small Tart tins instead of Pie Dish :)
