Healthy Apple Pie
This is the perfect time of year to bake home-made apple pie. The secret to my recipe is to firstly use sweet delicious apples – my favourites are golden delicious apples which are naturally sweet and just seduce you into cooking with them. I don’t peel the apples so that the filling looks rustic and wholesome, plus it adds another dimension of texture and flavour. The spelt shortcrust is one of my favourites and I love the richness of the pastry that gives a decadent mouthfeel when eating your pie. I love the pure ritual of making the dough – making pasty is extremely therapeutic and if you make it by hand you naturally feel the dough come into it’s creation.
