PREHEAT OVEN TO 350ºF / 180º C

Roll it in a ball and put it in a pot. Cover it with a cloth and leave for 5- 6 hours to rise.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350ºF / 180º C

Oil a pie tin[1] with vegetable oil and sprinkle with flour. Roll out the dough and line the tin with it.  Prick it with a fork and put a layer of chickpeas in the tin. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the chickpeas.

For the filling:

Put an inch or two of water in a pan with the remaining oil, salt, raisins, dates without pits cut in quarters, the apples, peeled and quartered, without core and seeds removed. When the fruit is soft, strain the liquid and purée the solids in a food processor.

Grind the almonds and hazelnuts. Add them to the apple mixture with the pine nuts. Add brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well.

Pour this into the pie tin lied with the dough. Cover[2] and bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and garnish the top with sugar and cinnamon. Cover again and put it in the oven for 15 more minutes.

When it is golden brown and the crust begins to shrink from the sides, remove from oven and serve warm.


[1] The original recipe calls for a frying pan. Probably that would be a paellera as the handle on today’s frying pan would be a problem when baking in the oven.
[2] Aluminum wrap was used, as pie tins do not normally have a cover today.
