  • Mix the flour and salt in a bowl then using your finger tips rub in the butter or margarine and the lard or shortening until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add enough of the cold water to form firm dough.
  • Roll out ¾ of the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line an oven proof plate.
  • Cover with the apples and place in the cloves and sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar.

  • Cut a vent in the top of the pie and brush the top with milk.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C/400°F gas mark 6 for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
