Turkish Rolling Apple Pie لفائف فطيرة التفاح التركية


Rolling pies look like cookie but they taste like apple pie. That's why we call it pie.
Ingredients
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbs corn starch
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • flour (apprx 3 cups)

Filling
  • 3-4 apples peeled and shredded
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbs sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnut
  • 3 tbs powdered sugar to sift on top of pies

Preparation
  1. First, we`ll start to prepare filling. Put shredded apples in a deep pan and saute it with sugar for a while. When it gets soft, turn the heat off and let it cool down. Add cinnamon and chopped walnuts. Stir to combine. Set that filling aside.
  2. To prepare the dough, Put all the ingredients (but not flour and baking powder) in a large bowl. Sift the flour and baking powder together in another bowl. Gradually Add flour mixture to the oil mixture until it is a nice and soft cookie dough. Put the dough into the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 pieces to make the rolling easy. Take one piece of them and roll it like circle. Cut it with knife into 6-8 pieces like pizza slices. Take one slice and put 1 tsp filling on the wide side of slice and roll it till the end. Do the same thing to all pieces of dough. After finished all pieces, put them on to greased cookie sheet. Pop it in 350 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes or so.
  4. Take them out of the oven. When they are still warm, sift powdered sugar.
