Easiest Apple Pie Recipe Ever
For the pastry:
250g all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 tbsp fizzy water
Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of your food processor and pulse until the dough comes together in a ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and pop in the freezer for 15 minutes. Take the dough out of the freezer 5 minutes before rolling it out.
For the filling:
4 large cooking apples of your choice
2 tsps cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
2 tbsps brown sugar
1 egg, to glaze
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Divide the dough in two, making sure that one piece is just a little bigger than the other. The larger piece will be the base of your pie and the smaller piece will form the lid. Roll out your larger piece of dough on a floured surface and line the bottom of an 8 inch pie dish with this piece. Prick the entire surface with a fork and dust lightly with the breadcrumbs.
Mix all of the ingredients for the filling and fill the pie.
Roll out the smaller piece of dough and place it over the apple filling. Press the edges of the dough together to close the pie. Score the top of the pie with a sharp knife and brush with beaten egg.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until your dough is golden and the filling is bubbling.
