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: 
  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC (180ºC fan assisted oven)/400ºF/Gas 6.
  2. 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.
  3. Peel, core and thickly slice the apples, toss with the lemon rind and juice, flour, sugar and cinnamon. Pile into the pastry base.
  4. 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.
  5. Serve warm with cream or ice cream.
