I Want Apple Pie

Apfeltasche
Apfelstrudel
Apfelkuchen










It's as American as apple pie, but apple pie in Germany? No way! Sure there's Apfelstrudel (Viennese pastry), Apfeltasche (apple turnover), Apfelkuchen (apple tart), and all sorts of apple-based custards, but a traditional American apple pie is unobtainable. Like oatmeal and popcorn, apple pie is an American food item that hasn't hit it big overseas. It's sad. The Europeans don't know what they're missing. I sure miss it though.
