Easy Apple Pie


200g plain flour
Pinch of salt
110g  butter,
2-3 tbsp very cold water
Apples
Cinnamon
Brown sugar
Beaten Egg for sealing and glazing

A hint for making great shortcrust pastry, keep it cold, its important not to let it get to warm, after stirring with the cold knife (below) you may need to finish the mixing by hand, just try to minimize the ammount of handling.
Easy Apple Pie  rosies home kitchen in brittany france recipes  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.  I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.  My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they cant cook, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.

 

 

 

 

 

Place the flour, butter and salt into a large clean bowl.
Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, working as quickly as possible to prevent the dough becoming warm.
Add the water to the mixture and using a cold knife stir until the dough binds together, add more cold water a little at a time if the mixture is too dry.
Wrap the dough in clingfilm and chill for a minimum of 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes.
While the pastry is chilling, peel, core and slice 5 or 6 apples
Cut the pastry in half, roll out and place 1 half on an oven proof plate
Arrange the apples onto the pastry, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, brush the edges of the pastry with beaten egg.
