American Apple and Pecan Pie

  • 100 gm cold peanut butter

  • 150g cold semi salted butter

Preheat the oven to 6 degrees (180 degrees Celsius). Start making the dough. Sift the flour into a bowl. Then we cut the butter into small cubes about 1 cm and add it to the flour. Add 50 g of peanut butter. Gradually mix the water while stirring until you get a homogeneous dough that does not stick to your fingers. Divide the dough into 2 equal balls and let them cool for 3 hours. Then roll out the first ball of dough on a parchment paper and place on a pie plate, making sure there is about 3 cm of excess dough. Prick the bottom of the dough with a fork, then cover with the rest of the peanut butter. Wash the apples, cut them into slices and arrange in a circle on two levels. In a bowl, mix together the maple syrup, eggs, and crushed pecans. Cover the apple with this preparation. Roll out the second ball of dough and place it on the pie you just filled. Roll up the ends that protrude from the first dough over the second. Bake for 40 minutes. Leave to cool and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
