For apples, take the ones you like the most except the green ones (Granny Smith) because they are too acidic. For my pie, I took Chantecerc yellow apples, because they are delicious cooked and already naturally sweet. Have fun arranging them on the pie shell to create a nice pattern!

This Rustic apple pie and coconut caramel can be enjoyed warm or cold, by coating it with a little caramel sauce (this one or a salted butter caramel, or even a spoonful of whipped cream ...

  • To make the coconut milk caramel: in the coconut can, take only the solid part and place in a saucepan. Heat a little then add the sugar, continue on low heat for about 15 minutes, the amber color should appear. Before finishing cooking, add a touch of fleur de sel.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 ° traditional heat. Roll out the dough to form a round about 35cm in diameter. The edges are irregular and this is what will give all its charm to your pie. Wash, halve the apples and core them. Slice the apples fairly thinly. Place the compote on the tart, making sure to leave 5cm of space all around for the folding afterwards. Then place the apples on the compote. Fold the edges of the tart on itself, then brush with egg yolk. Sprinkle with a little coconut sugar (or other sugar) and bake for 30 minutes (it should be golden brown). Before tasting, cover with coconut caramel.


If you find coconut cream instead of coconut milk, that also works.
If you can't find coconut milk or coconut cream, make a classic salted butter caramel :)
