Apple Pie
No recipe site is complete without an Apple Pie recipe


Preheat oven about 200 degrees Celsius

Heat water and corn flour over a low heat in a pan and whisk it until it thickens. Add the apple and simmer it for about 3-4 minutes until the apple has softened. Stir in sugar, cinnamon powder and pinch of salt. Simmer for another 5 minutes then Set aside

For the pastry: 

Cut butter in a small cubes and knead into the flour. Add pinch of salt and continue kneading until the pastry starts to get crumbly. slowly add water and keep kneading. You will notice the pastry develops a smoother texture. Sprinkle some flour over the work surface and on a rolling pin then roll the pastry mix. When it gets thin enough,  fold the pastry in half and half again, sprinkle some more flour on the worktop and roll again. Repeat this process until the pastry becomes elastic. For puff pastry, roll several sheets until paper thin and coat with butter and place the sheets on top of each other (about 5-6 sheets will do). Otherwise, roll the pastry until it is 3-5mm thick.

Please the apple mix in a pie dish and cover with the pastry, make a small hole in the centre to let the steam out. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour until it is golden brown. Serve hot, on its own or with cream, ice cream or custard!
