Ingredients and Method


  • 800g Shortcrust Pastry
  • 2 tbsp Milk, to glaze
  • 1.4kg Bramley Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 50g Butter
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 325g Caster Sugar


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/ 400°F/ Gas Mark 6.
  2. Heat the butter in a large saucepan; add the cinnamon, 300g/10.5 oz of the sugar and the apples. Simmer for about 10 minutes until the fruit is soft.
  3. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to about 3cm larger than the pie dish and cut into strips.
  4. Place the pastry strips on top of the pie and weave them into a lattice design. Trim away any excess pastry; brush the top with milk to glaze and sprinkle with the remaining caster sugar.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is bubbling. Leave to stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
