1. Cut apples in a very thin slices, place in the oiled dish for baking, and powder with cinnamon.
2. There are two ways of making the dough: very easy and a little bit more complicated. First variant:  whip sugar with eggs quite well in a deep bowl, then add flour and half a tea spoon of salt. Mix well. Second variant: mix just yolks with sugar, adding step by step flour. Then whip egg-whites very well and add in the dough, this way the pie will get a wonderful crust.
