Normandy-Style Apple Pie

6 tablespoons butter, not hard, cut up in little cubes
6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 cup all purpose unbleached flour

Preheat your oven to 375F.
Mix all ingredients with your warm dry hands until you get a nice ball.
Press crust in a 9" Pyrex glass pie plate.

3 big or 4 regular apples of your choice, peeled and cubed
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1 pinch cinnamon

Heat a frying pan on a high flame until very very very hot.
Quickly throw in the butter, apple cubes, sugar and cinnamon.
Fry on high heat until caramelized a bit.

Pour your caramelized apple cubes in your UNbaked pie crust.
Bake for 30 minutes. During that time, mix the filling:

2/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons Applejack or Calvados

Whisk well until combined

Pour the filling in the pie crust over the apples after 30 minutes at 375F.

Scatter 2 or 3 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds over the pie.

Reduce to a gentle 350F. and bake until just set, about 20-25 minutes.

Serve warm, with a good dusting of powdered sugar.
