I have posted apple tart and pies before with banana ,cranberies …..but this one is with
ginger and black raisins.So for the recipe now.
For the pastry
100 gms butter
2 cups flour
pinch of salt
a little milk
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.
3-4 apples cored and cut into slices
1/4 cup ginger chips
1/4 cup black raisins
1 tsp.cinammon powder.
a pinch of salt.
1/2 cup brown sugar (demerera sugar)
a few walnuts
Heat butter ,sugar gently for two minutes.Add the apples and cook for 5 minutes.Add the
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
When you are using a liquid filling apply egg white on the inner side of the
