Sift this, then mix the mixture until dough forms. Knead the dough a little then place it on a chopping board. Cut 1/3 of the dough, wrap it with plastic, and put it in the freezer to be used later. Now, line your mold with parchment paper on the bottom, place the remaining dough, and work it covering the entire bottom and walls of the mold. Place this in the freezer. Next, wash your apples thoroughly with the skin on, slice them, then cut them into cubes. Put them in a bowl, then add 1/4 cup sugar followed by 2 tsp cornstarch, and 1/2 juice of 1 lemon.
