Apple Pie For Two

Apple pie 2

When I watch competition cooking shows I’m inspired to make my version of whatever was made for dessert. So this week I made a simple apple pie for two.

I hope you’re inspired to try it yourself.

First you make the pastry.

  • Oven: 170°C (160C fan forced)
  • Baking dish: shallow pie dish
  • Makes: 2 serves
  • Baking time: 25mins

Ingredients for Pastry
1/4 cup of self raising flour
3/4 cup of plain flour
85g cold butter
2 tablespoons of The Sugar Breakup Dextrose
1 egg
1 teaspoon milk

Ingredients for Apple Filling
1/2 cup water
2 large green apples
1 tablespoon of The Sugar Breakup Dextrose
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

Putting it together

  1. Rub both flours and butter together until it resembles bread crumbs.
  2. Add the egg, dextrose and milk until the pastry forms. Roll into a ball, wrap in plastic and put it into the fridge for 30mins. Preheat the oven 170C (160C fan forced).
  3. Now make the apple filling. Skin the apple and cut into thin slices. Place the apples, dextrose, cinnamon and water into a small pot and bring to the boil. Then simmer apples for about 6mins or until they have started to soften. Set aside until pastry is ready.
  4. Line the pie dish with butter. Divide the pastry into two and keep the other half for a second pie for another night or make double the apple mix and make a pie for four. Roll out a pastry lid for the pie. Place the Apple mix directly into the pie dish and then put on pastry lid. Use excess to make a curly pie margin. Cut a slit.
  5. Place into the oven 25 minutes or until it looks golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream, custard or good old yummy cream.

  6. Tips and Hints

    1. You can use two ramekins. Divide apple mix into each ramekin and place a pastry lid on each. Bake as normal.
    2. You can add 1/4 teaspoon of cloves to the apple mix.
