Apple Pie

Hello again

This week I’m bringing you a recipe that I think is perfect for winter. Its warm and hearty, has some cinnamon spice and a crispy top. I cheated a little bit using shop bought pastry, but my puff pastry never turns out anyway, that’s right, puff pastry. You don’t usually use puff pastry for apple pies because it tends to go soggy but I prefer the flaky texture to a crumbly one on top.


6 medium granny smith apples

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 sheet of shortcrust pastry

1 sheet of puff pastry

1 egg


Preheat oven to 180 degrees

1) Peel and cut the apples into 1 cm thick slices, set aside in a bowl.


2) Into the apple mixture add the cinnamon and the sugar and mix until the apple is coated completely.


3) Put the pastry into a pie dish and put the apple on top.


4) Close the pie with the puff pastry and crimp the edges with a fork to join the 2 pastries.

5) Whisk the egg in a small bowl then use a pastry brush to coat the top with a thin layer of the egg. (This gives the pie top some gloss).

7) Serve, cream or ice cream makes a good accompaniment.

I hope you enjoy this one, its a fairly simple recipe which is why I enjoy cooking it, sometimes you just need a break from difficult, complex dishes. Thank you for your support and for leaving a like, feel free to comment any questions or suggestions.

All of these recipes are my own, I am not promoting any products in this recipe.
