The pastry: 1 1/4 cup of plain flour, 1/2 cup of butter, 2 egg yolks, 1 tbsp of water.

Combine the flour and butter first, then in a jug mix the egg yolks and water and add to to make a dough, keep kneading until you can roll it without it sticking to everything.

Then measure your dish and roll so that its a little too big for the dish.

Then put it into greased dish and trim!

Apple mixture: 3-4 apples (depending on the size), 6oz of sugar, juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1 egg, 4 tbsp of water, 1 tbsp of flour.

Normally I do the following: Mix together the sugar, lemon, egg, flour and water over a bain marie and wait for it to thicken. Whisk to ensure it is smooth. Put cut apples into dish and cover with the syrup.

BUT this time I stewed the apples in the syrup until it was kinda mushy!!

Then i popped it into the pastry.

I had so much pastry left over on this one that I made a lid! Normally I lattice the top! I glazed it with milk before cooking!

Cook at 200˚ for 45 minutes.
