Apple Pie!

Good morning you wonderful people, how are you? good, I hope ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It has been a very stressful time in our household this week, almost anything that could go wrong…did ๐Ÿ˜– I’m not going to go into detail about what’s happened, but there have been quite a few tears and some choice words that have come out due to frustration, but we’ve stuck together through it and apologized, and now we’re slowly getting back to normality.

Something that helped me to destress and keep my mind preoccupied whilst everything was happening, was baking! and I thought I would share with you an Apple Pie recipe that is perfect for this time of year.

Apple Pie


For the Filling

  • 5oz golden caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp for sprinkling
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 600g/1lb 5oz Bramley cooking apples, peeled, cored, sliced

For the Pastry

  • 400g/14oz plain flour, plus extra rolling
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 lemon, zest only
  • 250g/10oz cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten with 2 tbsp cold water, plus 1 free-range egg, beaten, to glaze


1. For the pastry, place the flour, sugar and lemon zest into a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the beaten egg and stir with a round-bladed knife until the mixture forms a dough.

2. Set aside one-third of the pastry for the lid. Roll out the remaining pastry on a lightly floured surface until the thickness of a pound coin and 5-7cm/2-3in larger than the pie dish. Lift the pastry over the rolling pin and lower it gently into the pie dish.
