Ultimate Apple Pie

I put this recipe together mostly because I wanted a project for the day and I was looking foreword to decorating the top, but it turned out SO DELICIOUS I had to post it! Hopefully the ingredients will be easy to collect during these weird times!

  • (For the pie dough)
    • 190g Plain flour
    • 2tbsp caster sugar
    • Pinch of salt
    • Lemon zest
    • 3tbsp water
    • 140g Butter
  • (For the filling)
    • 5 Apples
      3tbsp lemon juice
      2tsp cinnamon powd
      1tsp ginger powd
      100g Demerara sugar
      3tbsp plain flour
  • Start with the pie dough as it will need to rest in the fridge! Put flour, sugar,salt and zest together! Cut the butter into cubes and rub it into the flour mix, add the water and keep working the dough until all the bits and pieces are scattered. No lumps or pieces should be visible! Cling film and leave in the fridge for about 30 mins.

    Peel and cut thinly the apples, add the lemon juice and then combine all the dry ingredients together! Keep mixing over time while you wait for the dough to be ready.

    Once you got everything ready, butter and dust the cake tin, roll the dough, put the filling in and let you imagination go wild! Do you like it covered? Open? Waivy sides? Completely up to you! What I did is roll both the bottom and the top quite thin, sealed the top with a fork and then used cutter I had in the house to decorate! Also egg wash the top if you wish, add some Demerara sugar then into the oven! Bake at 180C for 50 mins.

    Hope you have fun decorating but mostly eating it! (Preferably with some whipped cream or custard on the side!)

    Meow meow!
