Apple and cinnamon pie

    45 min

    I always add cinnamon because I love the combination with apples. Cool the pie before eating it because the filling could be very hot when removed from the oven. Serve with vanilla ice cream and you'll have a hot and cold pudding.

    Serves: 8 

    • 8 apples, cut into large pieces
    • 100g dark brown sugar
    • 1 (450g) packet of shortcrust pastry (2 sheets)
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon cornflour
    • 1 egg, beaten, for glazing

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Cook the apples and 1 tablespoon of water, in a non-stick frying pan over low heat for about 15 minutes.
    3. Add the dark brown sugar, cinnamon and cornflour. Mix well and remove from heat as soon as it starts to thicken.
    4. Roll out the shortcrust pastry on a floured surface and line a pie dish. Spoon the apple mixture onto the dough. Cover with pastry and crimp edges. Cut four slits in the dough and then a small hole in the centre so the steam can evaporate. Brush over beaten egg.
    5. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove and leave to cool before serving.

    Followed the recipe but found it too sweet so the second time reduced the amount of cinnamon and sugar and tasted great. saved the recipe to make it again  -  23 Oct 2016


    I enjoyed this apple pie. I didn't have any cinnamon, but it would of made all the difference. I used just cooking apples. Was quite delicious. Thanks for the recipe.  -  27 Sep 2015
