Lene's Bester Apfelkuchen (Lene's Best Apple Pie)

This is my auntie Lene's recipe for a German style apple pie which is different from a standard American or English pie. The crust is finer and the whole pie is deeper. My mum always makes it when my BF and I come to Germany for a visit and he just can't get enough of it. Sorry it's only metric at the moment, next time I'll make it I'll measure in cups. Also, my mum tends to make the actual filling without actual measurements, so you might want to adjust amounts slightly to your liking. You can add raisins, about 1/4 of a cup, but I don't like them so much so I leave them out. You can make the filling ahead or make double the amount and freeze some for the next time, just leave out the almonds and add them after you have defrosted it. It seems like a lot of work, but it is quite simple and well worth the effort. Serve with freshly whipped cream and I'll promise you, you'll love it!
