You can use this pastry too for apple pies.

Pie pastry , sweet or savoury

3 cups of plain flour,
1 & 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder,
1/2 teaspoon salt,
12 Oz's of vegetable fat, chopped up small.
mix with
1 & 1/2 cups of milk with 3 teaspoons of vinegar added.
roll out to approx 40 x 80 cm oblong. , give 4 or 5 book folds. , You can still just see little bits of fat, that is OK., rest in the fridge for 45 minutes.

bumping for the Apple pie

sandhu, Aug 29, 8:02am

I just make basic shortcrust - 1/2 fat (usually half butter, half cremelta) to plain flour, never add sugar to it as the apples are sweet enough and I like to keep things simple

rozke, Aug 29, 11:13am
l will have to find the recipe that came with the apple pie l won for a school prize lt had icing sugar in it not too sweet with the apple and blackberry it was just right Cheers

I've totally lost my sweet tooth since losing weight so I'm finding what used to be just sweet enough is now just too much - shame for the rest of my family though

Grate frozen pastry on the top looks nice. Dust it down with icing sugar and serve it with unsweetened whipped cream. I never sweeten cream, a few drops of vanilla is all it gets now.
I freeze pastry that I have over for that reason, nice grated over lots of fillings.

If you want something really tasty, try the deep dish apple, sour cream and nutmeg pie. I have made it a few times now and it is a firm favourite when we have guests.

4 Granny Smith Apples ( about 750g in total)
2 eggs
100g caster sugar plus extra to sprinkle
1 tbsp. plain flour
300g sour cream
1/4 whole nutmeg, finely grated
Crème fraiche to serve


260g plain flour
75g self raising flour
185g chilled, unsalted butter, cubed
75g caster sugar
1 egg beaten with 2 tbsp. water
1tbsp milk

For the pastry, sift the flours and a pinch of salt into a food processor. Add the butter and pulse until crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the sugar. Add the egg mixture and mix with round bladed knife until mixture comes together. Shape into a smooth ball. Divide into two pieces, one slightly larger than the other. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 mins.
Roll out the larger pastry ball on a lightly floured surface to 3mm thick and use to line a lightly greased 23 x 4cm deep loose bottom tart pan. Trim edges and chill 20-30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Line pastry case with baking paper and fill with pie weights. Bake for ten minutes. remove the weights and paper and return to oven for 10 mins until lightly golden. Cool slightly. Loosen from the pan to make it easier to remove later. Peel, core and cut the apples into 2cm thick slices. Whisk the eggs, sugar and flour in a bowl. Whisk in the sour cream and nutmeg. Place layer of apple over base of pastry case, then cover with a little cream mixture. Repeat until case is filled. Roll out remaining pastry to a 3mm disc. Brush edge of pastry case with water, cover with pastry disc and press edges to seal. Cut a slit in the top. Bake for one hour. Set aside for half an hour to cool. Remove from pan, sprinkle with sugar and serve warm with crème fraiche.

I love my apple shortcake recipe - that can easily be made in a pie dish - it is so easy - I'm sure similar recipes to the above :-)
