Smiffs Famous Applepie

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock


125grams of butter
1/2 a cup of sugar
1 egg
1tsp of baking powder
2 cups of flour

(Note: if you use self-raising flour, you don't need to add baking powder)

Take the butter and mix in the sugar. Then mix the egg in. Beat it until it is all mixed in and smooth
Then add in the baking powder. Mix it in well. Add 1/2 a cup of flour at a time. Mix it in really well. It should get very sticky and roll into a ball easily. If it is too sticky, use more flour.

You can now roll it out with a rolling pin or just press it into a pie dish. Don't forget to leave some pastry aside to make the lid.

Open two tins of pie apples. Put it into a glass container and add a tsp of sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Put it into the microwave for about 2 minutes just to help cook them. Add a bit of water to make sure that it doesn't get too dry.

Put the pastry in the pie dish. Then put the cooked apples in. Crumble the pastry over the top to make a lid. You can either roll it and then place it on top, or you can crumble it.
Add a bit of sugar on top.

Bake it in the oven on 180 Degrees Celsius for about 30 minutes
or until the pastry on the top is a golden brown colour.

Slice and serve with a generous helping of custard. Yum Yum!!!
