A is for Apple Pie

To make this delicious apple pie you will need the following ingredients:

To make the pastry:

  • 200g of plain flour
  • 110g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 5 tbl spoons of cold water

To make the filling:

  • 700g cooking apples, which are cored, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tbl spoons of lemon juice
  • 6 tbl spoons of cold water
  • a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • pastry glaze

Then follow the step by step instructions below to make the pie.

~Put the flour and unsalted butter in a large bowl and rub with your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs.

~Add the water gradually until the mixture starts to bind together.

~Put the dough in clingfilm in the fridge for 30 minutes.

~Simmer the apples in a large pan with the lemon juice and water until they are softened. Once cooked add the sugar and cinnamon and stir until everything is ‘slushy’.

~Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter. Stir until melted.

~Heat the oven to 220°C/gas 7.

~Roll out half of the pastry and line a 12cm dish. Fill the dish with the cooked apple mixture.

~Roll the rest of the pastry to make a top to the pie and dampen the edges with a little cold water to stick to the rest of the pastry.

~Glaze the top of the pie before putting in the oven for 20-25 minutes and then serve with ice-cream.
