You will need: 9 inch pie dish

Pie dough:

Makes 2 disks:
2 1/2 cup AP flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp sugar
250 g / 1 cup butter, cold and chopped
1/4-1/2 cup ice water

The filling
1/4 cup All Purpose flour
8-10 Granny Smith apples
3/4 cup castor sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

First make the pastry

1. Put flour, salt and sugar in food processor, add butter, pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

2. Slowly add 1/4 cup ice water. Pulse till dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed.
Do not overmix to have a flaky crust. You should see some pieces of butter still.

3. Divide dough into two portions, with dough still crumbly, wrap with 2 pieces of cling wrap to form 2 balls.
Wrap tight, refrigerate till firm.

To make the pie

1. Preheat oven to 230C / 450 F / Gas 8

2. Butter a 9 inch pie plate. Roll out 1 disk and put on pie plate. Refrigerate.

3. Peel, core and slice apples. To prevent browning add lemon juice. Add sugar, flour and cinnamon. Toss together.

4. Take pie plate out of fridge and put apples in and dot around apples with butter.

5. Brush rim of plate with water.

6. Roll out 2nd disk and cover pie, pressing along wet rim to seal.

7. Tuck overhanging under to form a thick rim and crimp edges with fingers or with a fork.

8. Use a floured knife to cut 5-6 slits in top of pie to allow steam to escape when baking.

9. Bake for 20 mins then reduce oven to 180C /350F/ Gas 4 and continue baking for another 50-60 mins, until crust is golden and juices are bubbling.

10. If edges are brown too quickly, cover with foil.  Cool completely before serving, at least 4-6 hours.
