About this recipe: A favourite among my family and friends. The apples go great with the shortbread crust. Very easy and delicious! Serve with cream.
To check the doneness of the pie filling, insert a knife into the centre of the pie. If it meets with little or no resistance, the pie is done.
If the pie is not quite done but the top or edges are becoming too dark, loosely cover the top of the pie with aluminium foil to shield it from the heat.
Once the pie is done baking, let the pie cool to room temperature before slicing to allow the pie filling to set.
This is a lovely recipie!I found it best to turn my fan oven to 160 cos its very hot!I also took out pie and sprinkled a little caster sugar over the top for last 5 mins,I did find I had to add a little more flour to make the remaining mixture more crumbly,but that was no problem,I also used loosr bottom flan tin,easy to lift out when cold,I placed a tray in the oven in case of any drips! - 21 Sep 2011
