  • 125g/4oz Butter or Margarine
  • ¼pt/150ml Cold Water (approx)
  • 4 large Cooking Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • Sugar, to sweeten apples
  • Icing Sugar, to dust (optional)

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.
  2. Place butter/margarine in freezer for about 15 minutes to harden.
  3. Sieve flour into a bowl.
  4. Grate hard butter/margarine into the flour. You may need a little flour on your fingers for this.
  5. Using a knife, mix grated butter/margarine into flour.
  6. Add sufficient water and mix to a soft dough with the knife.
  7. Turn onto a floured board and knead lightly.
