Apple Pie


Pastry – shortcrust

1 - 9 inch frozen shortcrust pie case or make your own with:
        260 g  plain flour (all purpose)
        75 g self raising flour
        75 g  caster sugar
        185g cold unsalted butter, chopped
        2 eggs
        1 tbsp chilled water
        1 tbsp milk


Mix both flours in a large mixing bowl with a pinch of salt.  Rub the butter into  the mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add the egg yolks and cold water until the mixture holds together, then add the sugar.
Lightly beat 1 of the eggs with the cold water.  Bring the dough together with a blunt knife and start to form the dough into a ball.  Add a few more drops of water if needed to bring the together.

Divide the dough into 2 pieces and wrap in cling film and refrigerate for at least 30 mins.  Once chilled, roll the larger ball of pastry onto a floured workbench to a 30cm circle (about 2mm thick). Roll the pastry over a pie dish. Gently press into corners and allow the excess to hang over the sides.  (If you wish to blind bake it, line the pastry with some baking paper and fill with your baking beans.  Blind bake for 25 mins in a preheated oven.
