Old fashioned apple pie

Old fashioned apple pie

500g shortcrust pastry, rolled to about ¼ inch thick

1kg Bramley apples, peeled, cored, sliced and tossed in a squeeze of lemon juice

3 tbsp plain flour

100g golden caster sugar, mixed with ½ tsp cinnamon and a good grating of nutmeg

1 egg, separated

Whipped cream or ice cream to serve

Preheat the oven to fan 170°C/gas 5. Line a 20cm-deep pie dish with some of the pastry. Coat the apples with the flour and most of the sugar mix and tip into the pie. Add a top crust, trim, fold the edges and put two slots in the top. Brush with a little egg white and sprinkle with the rest of the sugar mix.

Place in the oven to bake for 45 minutes or until golden. Serve hot or cold with a generous dollop of ice-cream or cream.
