The shortcrust pastry recipe is from Cookidoo. I just added sugar to make it sweet.

I used 7 apples, however they were quite small.

Keep in mind that your apples have to be thin enough to cook. Although, they are still supposed to have some crunch when cooked. I have used the slicer side on the grater before, and that has worked well. Just very time consuming!

I place my pie tin on a pizza tray so it is easier to handle when moving in and out of the oven.

  • The pie pastry was not enough for an average size...

    The pie pastry was not enough for an average size pie dish. The apple filling was undercooked in 25 mins. Definitely need a much longer cook. Ironically too much crumble mixture. Thumbs down.
