Apple pie with gingerbread and almond paste

Is it still allowed? Speculaas and almond paste after Sinterklaas? Because you really want to make this apple pie. An easy speculaas apple pie with oatmeal and spices, which is nice and crispy. The warm, wintery taste of gingerbread spices is a good counterpart to the almond paste and fresh apples in the filling.

At the time of writing, we are still in the middle of the Sinterklaas weekend, but when this article goes live, Santa will have already left with the Noorderzon. Still, I couldn't wait until next year to share this gem of a recipe with you. Because the combination of gingerbread, food and apple is still incredibly tasty and suitable all winter long.

Speculoos and almond paste

It's funny that we (or just I?) have associated almond paste with the Sinterklaas celebration over the years. Of course, we owe this to the multitude offilled gingerbreadinbanquet staffwhich we gorge ourselves on at this (short) time of year. Or maybe I should only speak for myself here. 😉

Furthermore, the number of sweet Sinterklaas treats with almond paste is actually not too bad, I think. When I look at the recipes on Zoetrecepten, I also find many recipes with almond paste that have little or nothing to do with Sinterklaas. So by writing this paragraph I have completely convinced myself that I would do well to share this recipe with you after Sinterklaas.


While I'm at it, I'm going to give you some tasty recipes with almond paste. Actually I can start with

  • Amaretto cake with slipper base(not normally tasty)
  • Mini MonChou slippers with cherries(small, cute and wonderful)
  • Italian ricotta cheesecake(simply replace marzipan with almond paste)

An incredibly delicious, autumnal recipe: apple pie with gingerbread, almond paste, oatmeal and pieces of fresh apple. An easy recipe!

40 minutes

Make apple pie with gingerbread

  1. Knead the almond paste with the egg until it is a smooth, smooth mass. Set aside for a moment.
  2. Take a bowl and mix the oatmeal, flour, gingerbread spices and brown caster sugar together. Melt the butter and mix it into the mixture. A crumbly dough will form.
  3. Line a baking tray of approximately 30 x 40 cm with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cover the baking tray with about two-thirds of the oatmeal mixture and press it firmly onto the baking tray. Then spread the almond paste evenly over it.
  4. Peel the apples, remove the cores and cut them into pieces or wedges. Divide the apple slices over the almond paste and crumble the remaining oatmeal mixture over it.

  2. Would you like to serve this gingerbread apple pie as a dessert? Add some vanilla sauce or a scoop of cinnamon ice cream and everyone is happy.

Save Speculoos apple pie

  • Save:Store well packed outside the refrigerator for at least two to three days (preferably in a cool, dry place). Can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months.
  • Heat up:If the cookie has lost its crispiness, it is best to warm the apple pie cookie in the oven for 5 - 10 minutes. Very tasty by the way, such a warm piece of apple pie.

  1. Thanks for another delicious recipe Mariette. I converted the recipe for a rectangular shape with a loose bottom of 35×10. It was a huge success!

    To answer

    1. Ah great, thanks for sharing!

  2. Hello Mariette,

    Made the cookie and it tastes delicious. A downside is that the cookie is crumbly and falls apart. Maybe next time I'll add a few eggs and a little less butter.

    To answer

    1. Hi Trudy, that didn't bother me! Did you mix and/or knead it long enough to give the dough a chance to reach a nice crumb size? Adding an egg will give you more of a cake structure. Adding more butter will make the shortcrust pastry less 'crumbly'.

      To answer

  3. Should the oatmeal be ground into a flour or just keep its original structure?

    To answer

    1. The original structure! That gives a nice crunch.

      To answer

  4. Hoi Mariette,

    Can you also freeze the cookie?

    To answer

    1. Yes, that doesn't seem like a problem to me.

      To answer

  5. This is the first time I am working with almond paste. Is it available ready-made or do you make it yourself for this recipe?

    To answer

    1. Yes, that is ready-made for sale. But you can also make it yourself.
