Ultimate apple pie

Today we visited Andy's friend and his family and I brought this ultimate apple pie.

I've been thinking about what to make without eggs the whole week because Andy's friend doesn't eat eggs, and I eventually settled on the ultimate Autumn & Winter classic, apple pie.

We cut the pie after the amazing food Andy's friend's wife cooked for us. The prawn curry and mushroom rice was so tasty! I loved it when we had the pie, their 5 year-old boy grabbed the pie, ate it and gave me a big smile. Not only that, he tried to eat my piece too! I take that as a big compliment for my apple pie. :D

Thanks so much to the Kumar for the lovey time.


Puff pastry 1 (see here)
Apple confiture 150g (see here)
Apple 5
Sugar 50g
Lemon juice 1 tbsp
Raisin 2-3 tbsp
Almond slice 2-3 tbsp
Apricot jam 3 tbsp
Water 1 tsp

1. Cut apples into small pieces, and cook with sugar and lemon juice in a pan over medium heat until the liquid from the apples is reduced and thickened.
2. Preheat the oven to 190ºc. Make puff pastry. Roll out the pastry onto tart tin.
3. Spread apple confiture on the bottom of the pie. Put cooked apples and raisins on top. Sprinkle almonds.
4. Decorate the top of the pie with remaining pastry. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes or until the pie is golden.
5. Mix apricot jam and water and put in the microwave for 30 second. While the pie is hot, glaze the pie with thinned apricot jam.
