Recipe 1: Goodtoknow

Apple pie Goodtoknow


  • 500g sweet shortcrust pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1.5kg Bramley apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 25g butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  2. Roll out two-thirds of the pastry on a floured surface and use it to line a 20cm pie dish.
  3. Mix the apple slices, sugar, cinnamon and flour together in a bowl, then spoon the mixture into the pastry-lined dish.
  4. Dot the butter over the apples.
  5. Roll out the remaining pastry to make a lid, place it on top of the pie and press the edges together to seal. Use a knife to trim off any excess pastry, then make a few slashes in the top to let the steam escape.
  6. Brush the beaten egg over the top and bake for 45-50 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is tender.
