Cooking time: 
15-30 minutes
Serves: 
6-8
Preparation time: 
15-30 minutes
Ingredients: 
  • 500g Jus-Rol™ All Butter Shortcrust pastry
  • 1 kg cooking apples peeled, cored and thickly sliced
  • Juice and rind of 3 lemons
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 2tsp. ground Cinnamon
  • 100g caster or soft, light brown sugar plus extra for dredging
Equipment: 

Rolling pin

20cm pie place

Small round pastry cutter

Method: 
  • Preheat oven to 200ºC (180ºC fan assisted oven)/400ºF/Gas 6.
  • Divide pastry in half and roll out one to line a 20 cm/8” shallow pie plate. Put to chill whilst you prepare the apples.
  • Peel, core and thickly slice the apples, toss with the lemon rind and juice, flour, sugar and cinnamon. Pile into the pastry base.
  • Roll out remaining pastry and use to top the pie, using trimmings for decoration as desired – we cut out rounds of pastry with a small cutter and then added stalks to give an ‘apple’ motif. Brush with water and dredge lightly with remaining sugar, bake for 20-25 mins until pastry is golden brown.
  • Serve warm with cream or ice cream.
