Baking with apples - tips and tricks

• Sugar causes increased secretion of juice from apples. Therefore, it is not recommended to add it to the filling in advance. It is better to sprinkle with sand filling already in the process of molding products.
• Cinnamon is an additive that not everyone loves. If you do not like the flavor of this spice, then you can simply not use. Or add vanilla, essences, nuts to pastries with apples. It goes well with fruit poppy, giving a peculiar taste and aroma.
• Often, pies and other apple pastries look boring. But in fact, decorate products easier than ever. The easiest option is topping. It is enough to lubricate the pastry with syrup (honey, jam) and pull with coconut shavings, chocolate, nuts. It is more difficult: use glazes, fudge, make decorations from dough before baking.
