slovenian austrian apple pie

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Can I cheat and have apple pie instead? I think I will. Though, clearly, these two things aren’t interchangeable, but I’ve wanted apple pie all week and finally managed to make it. The start of the week was rough, I felt sick and even had a fever two days in a row, even though I don’t even have a cold and have no idea why I’ve been feeling the way I have. I blame it on the weather or stress, but I’ll probably go get my blood checked just to be on the safe side. I’m feeling better today and I’d like to think apple pie has something to do with it. It probably doesn’t, but I can pretend. Because I think it’s just the ultimate comfort pie. The kind you can eat on the couch wrapped in a blanket. And I have done that.

As far as the name goes, I’m calling it Slovenian apple pie because this is the kind we eat around here. In an old German book I have, a variation of it is called Steyrischer Apfelkuchen, which is a type of apple pie made in Styria, a region both in Slovenia and in Austria, so this is another one of those foods we have in common. The recipes people use might vary slightly, but the look and the taste of this pie is very much the same in the end. The crust is crumbly and soft, the apples are grated, sweetened with sugar and spiced with cinnamon and they make the most delicious moist filling. And thanks to this filling, the pie won’t fall apart. It’ll stick together like cement and wait for you to cut it and serve it with pride. In reality, this is as much a pie as it is an apple cake and it is definitely a favorite in our home.

And let me just tell you that there is nothing better from having this baked in the fridge when you’re feeling grumpy, it’ll change your mood immediately.
