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 it in the pie plate. Refrigerate.

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

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

5. Brush the rim of the plate with water.

6. Roll out the 2nd disk and cover the pie, pressing along the 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 on top of the pie to allow steam to escape when baking.

Brush the top with milk, and also any pastry decorations you've added.

You can also use any leftover pastry to cut into leaf shapes and place on top of the pie for decoration.
