Change Quantities:
  • PASTRY
  • 10g Freee Plain White Flour
  • 75g butter
  • 3 tbsp cold water
  • flour for dusting
  • FILLING
  • 400g apple, sliced
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • pinch of ground clove
  • 1 tbsp Demerara sugar

Pastry

  1. Grease a 20cm/8” round pie dish and pre-heat the oven.
  2. Put the flour and butter into a large bowl.
  3. Use a fork or pastry blender to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Stir in the water to make a slightly sticky dough. Cover the dough and leave it to rest for 15 minutes.
  5. Cut off a third of the dough and leave it to continue resting.
  6. Put the remaining dough between two pieces of cling film and roll it into a 25cm/10”circle.
  7. Carefully transfer the pastry to the prepared dish or simply press it into place in the dish using your fingers.
  8. Cut away any pastry that hangs over the edge of your dish.

Filling

  • Peel and slice the apples into a bowl, stir in the granulated sugar and clove.
  • Tip the apple into the prepared pastry case and brush the edges with water.
  • Put the reserved piece of pastry between two pieces of cling film and roll it into a 20cm/8” circle.
  • Lift the pastry circle onto the filled pie, removing the film, and press around the edges to seal.
  • Sprinkle with Demerara sugar and make some cuts in the pastry to allow steam to escape during cooking.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes until the pasty is crisp.
