METHOD

Mix the salt ,flour and sugar in a bowl.Rub in butter and egg and blend well.Add vanilla

and milk if necessary.Do not knead the dough too  much,just put it together,otherwise the

pastry will not be light.Keep covered for thirty minutes.Roll between two sheets of butter

paper ,or dust flour lightly and roll.Grease a pie dish,and gently add the pastry and line the

dish .Prick the centre with a fork .Crumple a piece of butter paper,put on the lined pie

crust.Add some dry beans or uncooked rice and half bake it.Spoon the apple filling .Top

with remaining pastry strips .Brush with egg yolk and bake on medium heat 180 degrees

for 20-25 minutes.

rest of the ingredients.Spoon the mix into the pie dish.Cover with strips of the pastry and

bake.To add the extra glaze you can brush with marmalade or apricot jam after baking.

If you need more volume to another version of apple pie ,add 3 eggs and 1/4 cup cream
