Ingredients: 

Pastry: 

2 cups self raising flour 

Pinch of salt 

2 teaspoons caster sugar 

125gm butter 

2-3 tablespoons cold water 

Filling: 

750gm cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced 

4 tablespoon sultanas or raisins 

1 cup brown sugar 

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 

¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg 

Finely grated rind and juice of half a lemon. 

To Finish: 

Milk 

Caster sugar 

Method: 

1. To prepare the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl, then stir in the sugar. Add the butter in pieces and rub into the flour with the fingertips until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. 

2. Stir in enough water to hold the mixture together, then form into a smooth ball. 

3. Wrap in foil or grease-proof paper and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 

4. Divide the dough into two and roll out one half on a floured board into a circle to fit the base of a 20cm/8inch pie dish. 

5. Put the apples in a mixing bowl, then stir in the remaining filling ingredients. Spoon into the dough lined pie dish. 

6. Roll out the remaining dough into a circle to form the lid. Lay over the filling, pressing down and sealing the edge with water.
 
7. Flute the edge with your fingers or crimp 
with the prongs of a fork. Brush with a little milk and dredge with caster sugar. Make a slit in the centre of the pie for the steam to escape.

8. Bake on a baking sheet in the centre of a hot oven (200 degrees C/400 degrees F) for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to moderate (180 C/350 F) and continue baking for 20 minutes. 

9. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. Best served with cream, ice-cream or home made custard.
