Cooks Tip

For a real American apple pie, after cooking turn off the oven, remove pie and pour double cream into slit. Return pie to oven for 20 minutes or until oven cools – then serve immediately. If you buy 284ml carton of cream, there will be plenty left over to serve chilled with the rest of the dessert.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to gas 6/200C/400F. Cut the pastry in half and roll out one peice to cover base of a 23cm (9") pie dish.
