Has British Pie week comes to an end, I couldn’t let it get away without baking my fave classic 🍎apple🍏 pie with a visual twist ☺
Ingredients:
for the pastry:
8oz (225g) self raising flour you can use plain but self raising gives it more of a cake like texture which I prefer.
Pinch of salt
4oz (100g) margarine you could use half lard half marg if you wish.
1 oz (25g) Caster sugar
Cold water to mix about 30 ml (2tbsp)
Filling:
4 braeburn apples, peeled cored and cut into bit size chunks.
1 tsp of lemon curd
A splash of water
4 tbsp Caster sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger

Warm or serve cold if preferred with custard, cream, ice-cream or my healthier alternative option these days, low fat natural yoghurt.
