Homemade Apple Pie
2 cups self-raising flour
4 Tbsp ice water
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp sugar
1 egg, beaten
8 apples, peeled, chopped ¾ cup water2 ½ Tbsp sugar 1 ½ Tbsp lemon juice 1 tsp cinnamon
Mix sugar and salt in a bowl, then add in the butter and flour. Use a fork (or food processor) to mix until lumps are no bigger than pea size.
Add the egg and water until dough is moist and sticks together. It should still be crumbly. Cover and place it in the fridge for an hour.
Place all filling ingredients into a medium-sized pot and bring to the boil, before simmering until cooked. Remove from heat.
Roll half of the pastry dough out into a circle and put in the bottom of the dish – it needs to cover the inside edges of the dish too. Pour filling on top of your base.
Cover the filling with another layer of dough.
Bake at 180 degrees for 45-60 minutes (until brown). Then enjoy the apple pie!
