Ingredients for Apple filling:
3 granny smith apples ~peeled and diced 
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar
2 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1 1/2 tbsp plain flour

To Do:

~This it the cored and diced apples~

 ~All the ingredients are added to the apple~

2) In a sauce pan add in butter and saute the mixed apple until it is soften.
3) Add in flour and stir to combine, dish up and let it cool.

~Apple filling is ready~

Ingredient for pastry crust:
60g butter
120g plain flour ~ sieve
55g icing sugar ~ sieve
1 yolk
1-2 tbsp ice cold water

To do:
1) Rub butter into the flour and icing sugar with your finger tips till bread crumbs assemble. Mix in yolk and cold water mix into a dough.
2) Wrap the dough with a piece of cling foil and put into fridge for 20-30 minutes.
3) Roll the pastry flat about 5mm thick and cut out a round piece to put into the pie pan and tuck in neatly.
4) Fill in the apple filling into the pie case. Again, roll out a piece of pastry into  5mm thick and cut into 1cm width strips for the pie cover.
5) Bake in a preheated oven at 200c for 20 minutes

Below is the method of pleating the pie cover..

~Rolled the pastry into retangle and cut into long strips~

~~Lay two strips on a piece of plastic sheet, like a cross~

~Lay another two, one on top of the horizontal piece and one under the horizontal piece but lay in vertical line~

 ~Repeating the steps again with another two pieces~

 ~If you find that the pieces is blocking in the process, you can just simply fold up that piece~

 ~When it is finish pleated, just cut out a round shape with the pie tray and cover on top of the filled with apple filling pie case...brush the side of the pie case before putting on the cover~

~This is the look of my loose bottom pie tray.

 ~Thid is the end result of the pie case~

~Brush with egg mixture to give the shinning and even browning look when it is bake~

~Yummy ~~ its done~



  1. Hi, may I know the size of the pan? Can I make this into egg tart mould? Looking forward to you reply. Your apple pie looks lovely :)

  2. Hi Jamie,
    My tart mould is 11cm in diameter and 2cm in height.
    Yes , you may make it in egg tart moulds, only it may be a bit tedious to do into small mould as egg tart moulds.
    Anyway, no harm trying of course.
    Do let me know how's your outcome.
    Cheers n happy trying:)
