100g salted butter
100g sugar
6 apples (e.g.: Granny Smith)
400g of Shortcrust Pastry (Do NOT blind bake)
200g plain flour
100g unsalted butter
1 tbsp icing sugar
1 beaten egg


Cut up the Apples

Step 1

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Grease a pie dish.

Peel and core the apples and cut them into quarters.

In a large pan, melt the butter with the sugar. Ensure the sugar is evenly spread in the pan. Caramelise butter and sugar until golden, then add the apples.

Step 3

The apples should be well coated with the caramel. Leave them to cook for about 5 minutes more, stirring from time to time.

Step 4

Take the pan of the heat. Place the apples in the pie dish, making sure that you pack them tightly together. Then pour the leftover caramel over the apples.
