Apple Pie Tray Bake
Transform two sheets of pastry and some spiced apples into an American classic – a crispy, moreish tart that is perfect for any night of the week.
Muscovado sugar: see Glossary page 138
Roll out each sheet of pastry on a lightly floured bench to make it a little thinner and larger.
Place one sheet on a flat lined baking tray and brush the edges with the egg wash.
Filling: Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, tossing the apples so they are well coated.
Tip the apples onto the pastry, spreading them evenly and leaving a 2cm border all the way around.
Place the second piece of pastry over the apples. Pull the edges of the bottom piece of pastry up over the top piece and crimp the edges together to seal well. Cut a few small slits in the top of the pie. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with the raw sugar.
Bake for 35–40 minutes until the pastry is well cooked and a good golden colour.
Slide onto a serving platter and dust with icing sugar. Serve hot or warm with cream or ice cream. Serves 8
