Apple cranberry cake


Apple tartlets

  • 150 GRAM SUGAR
  • 100 GRAM BUTTER, melted

Knead the flour (keep two tablespoons behind) with the butter, half of the sugar and 1 egg. Roll out this dough and line 6 small tartlet moulds with it. Distribute the apple pieces over the pies as in the picture. Mix the cream with the remaining eggs, flour and sugar and the vanilla sugar and pour this over the apples.
