We hope you enjoy making this apple pie recipe

Ingredients:

  • 7 apples
  • 1 Girger butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups sugar (1 cup sprinkled on apple, 1 cup for the pastry dough)
  • Self raising flour as much as it takes
  • Cinnamon to taste

Method 

  1. To make the pastry, mix the butter, the egg and 1 cup of sugar with a beater until it is smooth and creamy. Then add in the flour so it comes together to form smooth dough. Flatten it to a 2 cm thickness and wrap it in glad wrap. Place it in the freezer to harden.
  2. Peel your apples and chop them into small dice and cover with the remaining cup of sugar. Mix them well until they’re all covered and sprinkle with cinnamon to taste.
  3. Butter the baking tray lightly.
  4. When the dough is ready to use take it out of the freezer and work with it quickly. Use a box grater to grate the dough. Ensure you grate enough to cover the whole bottom layer of the tray.
  5. Place the apples on top of the bottom layer of pastry. Then continue grating the remainder of the pastry and place it on top of the apples.
  6. Bake at 170° for 40-45 minutes or into lightly golden.
