This is a recipe for my very best Apple Pie recipe. No one will ever dissuade me otherwise. Ever. Sweet, crisp snappy pastry with soft, cinnamon apples within....
Preheat the oven to 170 C. Put the flour, butter, salt and sugar in a food processor and whizz until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Line a deep 8" or 9" pie dish carefully with the pastry.
I use a sharp knife against the lip of the dish to carefully trim off the excess
Mix the apples well with the cinnamon,sugar and flour and tip into the lined pie dish. Brush the pastry edge with a little water.
Carefully roll out the smaller disc to fit the top of the pie and place on top. If the pastry comes over the edge trim off the excess. Squeeze, pinch or crimp the edges together to seal. Brush all over with eggwash and make two air vents in the middle of the pie. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
I like to decorate with a little extra pastry leaves and berry thing....sad I know but I loves it.
Bake for about 50 mins - 1 hour. Be careful to watch it in case it begins to burn and needs a hat of foil on top to stop the edges getting too dark edges etc from burning.

This is a big Apple Pie and as such it does require your full attention at times especially towards the end of the baking time to make sure the pastry doesn't catch at the edges. It is so worth it though. This is a Pie that memories are made with....
