The overall look of this pastry is adorable, but the process was all wrong. The dough was disgusting, and didn’t resemble a flaky pie crust at all. Once cooked it was flat like a cookie and hard as a rock! And if I had taken it out of the over any sooner then the recommended time, the dough would have been undercooked and mushy. The filling didn’t cook right at all. All of the sugar and cinnamon clumped up and turned to a jelly like substance and didn’t stick to any of the apples. Everything about this recipe went wrong. I followed the directions to a T. And I bake often so I’m not new to baking. So I’m pretty sure the error was in the instructions and not user error. This recipe would have been way nicer with a sweeter and flakier dough. And much clearer instructions would have been nice, like how small to dice the apples and which type of Apple Cider Vinegar to use either “with the mother” or “without”. The measurements also could have been more clear. There’s probably way easier recipes to follow that you could use to complete this recipe that would be less time consuming and user friendly.
