13. Divide the dough into 2 unequal parts. One part for the base of the pie, the second for the top part to close the pie.
14. Roll out most of the dough and place it in a baking dish.
15. Add the pie filling.
16. Roll out the second part of the dough and cover the filling.
17. Press the edges of the pie so that it becomes whole. Give shape and decorate a little with patterns. Be sure to make holes on the top, so that steam comes out when cooking.
18. Preheat the oven to 446℉ (230℃).
19. Send the pie to the oven. Cook for 1 hour.
Note: The cooking time may be different for everyone due to the different volume of the oven and the size of the pie. So look at your own discretion when your pie is ready!
