I have an AWW recipe with custard powder. Makes the best pastry ever.
1c plain flour
1/2 c self-raising flour
1/4c cornflour
1/4c custard powder
1 tbsp castor sugar
125g butter chopped
1 egg separated
1/4c water, approximately
1 tbsp extra castor sugar

Apple filling
7 large apples
1/2c water
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp grated lemon rind

Combine sifted flours, custard powder and sugar in large bowl. Rub in chopped butter with fingertips or process in food processor until just combined. Add enough combined egg yolk and water to mix to a firm dough. Turn onto lightly floured surface, knead gently until smooth. Cut dough in half wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 mins.
Roll out half the pastry between two sheets of plastic wrap until large enough to line 23cm pie dish.
Spoon cold filling into pastry case. Brush edge of pastry with lightly beaten egg white.
Roll out remaining pastry and cover. Press down edges with fingers. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle pie with remaining sugar. Bake in mod hot oven 20 mins then reduce heat to moderate bake for further 20 mins.
Peel apples and cut into quarters. Place apples in a large pot with water, bring to the boil, reduce heat cover cook for about 5 mins or until just tender. Transfer apples to a bowl and add remaining ingreds. Cool to room temp.
