    Apple pie tips

    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.

    Lovely and easy. The kids (ages 4 and 7) helped to make and were so proud of the results. Very tasty too and didn't last long at all!  -  02 Jan 2012


    This is an absolutely divine apple pie that combines the best of both worlds. Made this for my family and even my super fussy hubby gave it 10/10.  -  29 Sep 2009


    This is my first time making the apple pie, I made a couple of changes and doubled the amount of the crumble. It tastes fantastic thanks  -  25 Dec 2017
