Ingredients

  • 500 g wheat flour
  • 250 ml lukewarm water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 50 ml vegetable oil
  • 1 egg

For apple filling:

  • 1-2 kg apples
  • 150 g butter
  • 80 g bread crumbs
  • 1 lemon
  • cinnamon
  • sugar

Instructions

  • Put the flour, oil and egg in food processor. Mix the lukewarm water with salt and vinegar. Start mixing with slowly adding water into flour.
  • When it doesn't stick to the bowl anymore take it out on the working table and finish it with your hands until nicely soft and smooth.
  • When finished spread the oil over dough, cover it and put to rest for at least 1/2 hour.
  • Wash and clean the apples. Sprinkle the lemon juice over grated apples. In that way they will not turn brown. You can also add sugar and cinnamon.
  • Melt the butter and mix in the bread crumbs. Stir-fry them just a bit.
  • Put the dough on a cotton cloth sprinkled with a bit of flour. Stretch the dough from all sides out to get a very thin layer.
  • Sprinkle with breadcrumbs roasted in butter, save 1/4 for later. Than add apples on 1/3 of the dough together with sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the rest of breadcrumbs over these edges and roll all in with the help of the cotton cloth.
  • Make small holes with tooth pick to get rid of the air inside. Spread with melted butter or vegetable oil and put into preheated oven.  Bake for 1 hour on 200 degrees C.
