Swedish apple pie, called smulpaj in its home country, is similar to what Americans call an apple crumble or apple crisp, but it's way easier to make.
A Swedish apple pie has no crust, so there's no need to make the perfect lattice pie crust or create a showcase apple-art display. Instead, the texture comes from what’s on top.
Apples define the dish, with Granny Smiths bringing tart and sweet elements. Other basics include sugar, flour, eggs, butter, and sometimes baking powder.
A variation called “Swedish crispy apple pie” becomes crispy while baking due to the addition of golden syrup to other ingredients, including heavy cream.
