Method

  1. Step 1:

    Using a food processor, blitz the flour and the butter together, and then pulse in the sugar, before gradually adding the water to bind the pastry to a soft dough.

  2. Step 2:

    Alternatively, you can make the pastry by hand by rubbing the flour and butter together, adding the sugar and then the water, mixing with the blade of a dinner knife.

  3. Step 3:

    Bring the pastry together, wrap in cling film and chill for 1 hour.

  4. Step 4:

    Stew your apples by half filling a saucepan with water, peel and chop your apple into 1-2cm chunks, placing them in the water to stop them from browning. Once all the apples are prepped, drain the saucepan and then add a couple of tablespoons of water, and 3 tablespoons of light muscovado sugar. Stir in the cinnamon.

  5. Step 5:

    Roll out your pastry between two sheets of parchment to make a big rectangle that is about 2-3 mm thick. Using a knife and a ruler cut the pastry into rectangles 7cm x 15cm. You will need two for each pie. A base and a lid.

  6. Step 6:

    Brush the base with beaten egg, top with about 2 tbsp. pie filling and then top with the lid. Lift onto your prepared baking sheet and continue with the rest of the pastry until it is used up.

  7. Step 7:

    Chill the pies for 30 minutes.

  8. Step 8:

    Preheat your oven to 220°C (200°C fan.)

  9. Step 9:

    Brush the pies with beaten egg and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 18 minutes.
