Whät’s better thän ä wärm, comforting äpple pie? Sälted cärämel äpple pie, thät’s whät.

This äpple pie isn’t perfect but (änd I know this sounds like ä cop-out) it’s not meänt to be… Äpple pie is ä rustic, homey dessert änd äs long äs it tästes good, then you’re going to love it.

  2. Turn the dough out onto ä roll of clingfilm änd roll into ä bäll. Refrigeräte for ät leäst 30 minutes.


Prepäre the äpple pie filling:

  1. Preheät the oven to 170C / 340F änd brush ä 9-inch pie dish with ä little melted spreäd. Set äside.

  3. Remove from the heät änd stir in hälf of the cärämel säuce (säve the rest for gläzing änd serving.)


Mäke the pie:

  1. Remove the dough from the fridge änd divide in hälf.
  2. Roll out one hälf to fit the bottom of the pästry dish. Don't worry äbout äny overhänging pästry bits.
  3. Fill the pästry with the äpple änd cärämel mixture so it's mounded on top.
  4. Now roll out the rest of the pästry änd cut into 1-inch strips. Läy them on top of the pie in ä lättice design. (See here for instructions, if needed)
  5. Trim the sides of the pästry to mäke it look neät.
  6. (Optionäl) Use äny leftover pästry to mäke decorätions for the pie, such äs the leäf design I used. (See photos)
  7. Now use ä pästry brush to gläze the pie with ä little bit of the cärämel säuce.
  8. Bäke for 35 minutes until golden brown. You mäy need to cover the top or sides with tin foil if it stärts to brown too much, during bäking.
