Mix everything. Squeeze half lemon and add the juice in the bowl. Mix.

On a flat surface cut the dough into two pieces, leaving one piece a bit bigger than the other. Take the bigger one and make it flat. Spread some butter in a pie pan.

Sprinkle some flour over the butter and place the dough. Cut the dough following the edge of the pan.

Add the apples and some small pieces of butter on top. Make flat the second half of the dough.

Place it on top of the apple and cut it according to the edge of the pie pan. With a fork press the edge of the pie.

Spread some milk over the cake so the dough won't burn in the oven. Bake the cake in the oven for 1 hour at 180°C (360F)

Serve a bit warm, just amazing!
