Apples come from Kazakhstan. It’s true! The ancestor of the domestic apple is the Malus sieversii and it grows wild in the Tian Shan Mountains of Kazakhstan. So naturally we just had to make an apple pie.
I scoured the internet for an authentic Kazakh apple pie recipe and I found one picture over and over again, but sadly no recipe. Until finally I found one in Spanish!
Thanks to google translate and some trial and error I now have a new favorite apple pie!
