  1. Step 1:

    For the pastry, place the flour and butter in a large bowl. Rub the butter into the flour, and then mix in the sugar and a pinch of salt.

  2. Step 2:

    Combine the pastry into a ball and knead it briefly. Wrap the pastry in cling film and chill for about 30 minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    Place the apples, and 2 tbsp sugar in a large saucepan with two tablespoons water and heat gently until the apples begin to soften.

  4. Step 4:

    Add the blackberries and cook for a further 5 minutes. Leave to cool slightly.

  5. Step 5:

    Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan oven 180°, gas mark 6). Very lightly grease a muffin tin.

  6. Step 6:

    Roll half the pastry and cut it into about 20 x 7.5 cm rounds, gathering up the scraps and re-rolling. Do the same with the other half of the pastry, this time using the 6 cm cutter. Use the larger pastry rounds to line the muffin tins.

  7. Step 7:

    Spoon the apple and blackberries mix into the cases. Gently wet the edges and top with the smaller pastry rounds pressing gently to seal.

  8. Step 8:

    Brush the tops of the pies with the beaten egg and sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.

  9. Step 9:

    Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack. To serve, lightly dust with icing sugar.
