Cooking Apples, peeled and sliced – 800g

Brown Sugar – 80g (approximately, depending on how sweet the fruit is) plus extra for sprinkling

Water – 80ml

One quantity of rough puff pastry

a little milk to glaze


Cook 600g of the apples with the sugar and water over a low heat until the apples have caramelised to a golden brown colour and broken down to a puree.  Add the remaining 200g to add texture to the puree.

Place in a pie dish and cover with the pastry.  Glaze with the milk and sprinkle with the additional sugar.

Bake in the oven at Gas Mark 6 for approximately 30 minutes until the pie crust is crisp and golden.
