Alrighty folks, buckle up your taste buds because we’ve got a sweet treat coming your way! Today, we’re diving into the deliciously decadent world of Spanish almond-apple pie and its drool-worthy cousin, the empanada de manzana. Don’t worry, we won’t judge you if you drool a little bit – these treats are seriously tempting!

Let’s start with the classic: Spanish almond-apple pie. Our pal Cristina from Madrid taught us this gem of a recipe, and we’ve been hooked ever since. It’s a simple yet elegant take on the traditional apple pie that will have your taste buds singing in gratitude. Here’s what you’ll need:

– 1 pie crust
– 6 apples, peeled and sliced
– 1/4 cup sugar
– 1/4 cup almond flour
– 1 tsp. cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
– 1 tbsp. lemon juice
– 1 tbsp. butter, cut into small pieces

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
2. Roll out your pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice.
4. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and dot the top with small pieces of butter.
5. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the apples are soft and caramelized.

Now, let’s talk about our personal favorite: the empanada de manzana. This Spanish take on apple pie is a sweet, savory delight wrapped up in flaky pastry goodness. It’s perfect for a midday snack, a dessert, or even a breakfast treat (shh, we won’t tell anyone!). Here’s how you can make it at home:
