DIRECTIONS

  • Peel, quarter and core apples, slice quarters.
  • Put sliced apple into a pot with cinnamon, cloves and lemon juice.
  • Cook over a medium heat until apples are tender (I don't like them mushy).
  • Leave to cool and remove whole cloves before using apple filling.
  • NOTES FOR APPLE PIE.
  • Roll out half of pastry on a floured surface and line 23cm pie plate.
  • Fill with apple filling. Brush rim of pastry with a little milk.
  • Roll other half of pastry out and cover the top of the pie.
  • You could decorate the edge of the pie with the tines of a fork.
  • Trim excess pastry from the edge of the plate.
  • Brush milk over the top of the pie. Decorate the top with excess pastry if you want (I usually cut out leave shapes). Cut a few small slits in the pastry to let steam escape.
  • Sprinkle top with 1 teaspoon of sugar.
  • Put into a preheated 180 degree celsius oven for 25 - 30 minutes until pastry is golden.
  • Enjoy warm with cream and or icecream or even cold by itself.
