It’s a wonderful harvest time right now in August with fruit and berries just waiting to be picked. I am a true pie-addict and the most delicious pie is of course a classic cinnamon scented apple pie with homemade ice cream. When I lived in the country, we had old apple trees and every autumn my Mum and I had apple-mania. We picked a lot of fruit to store for the Winter. We turned the Summer apples into the delectable apple pie and apple juice that we put in the freezer for safe keeping.

In this recipe I’m showing you how to make a classic Swedish apple pie ​​with lots of butter, just as it should be :) Together with the pie, I serve modern version of homemade ice cream – light and delicious… enjoy! :)

Apple pie with cinnamon ice cream


275 g butter
100 ml granulated sugar

1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt


6 apples
200 ml hazelnuts
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp granulated sugar

Pastry: Melt butter and add all other ingredients directly into the pan. Pour out 3/4 of the dough into a pie plate.

Filling: Core and cut the apples into slices, chop the hazelnuts and mix the cinnamon and sugar. Place the apple slices on the dough in the pie plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, chopped hazelnuts and crumble over the rest of the pastry over the apples. Bake in oven approx. 30 minutes.

Serve with custard or this lovely cinnamon ice cream…


(Good LCHF recipe)

400 ml whipping cream
200 ml plain yogurt, 3% fat
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
100 ml granulated sugar

Cinnamon Ice Cream: Whip the cream. Then mix all ingredients in a plastic container with a lid and leave in the freezer for at least 3 hours. Remove the icecream 15 minutes prior to serving the pie.


This lovely apple pie tastes best in the open air with good company and the smell of freshly harvested fruit :)

What is your favorite pie?

Have a lovely week!

Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.


  1. Hi Maria! Looks so delicious, would love to taste it right now!:) Yum! Hope your summertime is going well my dear, hugs and kisses! xo

  2. If I would do this for my boyfriend he´d be beyond happy! He always says that any dessert including apples is a good dessert xD

  3. Oh my gosh, apple pie is my absolute favourite! This looks delicious, I’ve never tried cinnamon icecream before, definitely going to try making some!

  4. rabarberpaj gillar jag, trots att jag inte är så mycket för sötsaker egentligen. men jag gillar syrligt. kanske därför. mina päron har en jätterabarberdunge, så jag tänkte baka paj när min barndomsvän kommer hit. men jag är lite bekväm, så det blir smulpaj.
