  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples (about 2-1/2 lb/1.25 kg)
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup raisin optional
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberry optional
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Perfect Pastry

Method

In large bowl, toss together apples, brown sugar, raisins (if using), lemon juice and cinnamon; set aside.

On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry and fit into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Spoon in filling; dot with butter. Brush pastry edge with water. Roll out remaining pastry and fit over top; trim and flute edge. Cut 4 slashes in top for steam vents; brush with some of the milk.

Roll out pastry scraps; using 1-inch (2.5 cm) cookie cutter, cut out shapes (such as apples). Place on pastry; brush shapes with remaining milk. Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake in bottom third of 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C); bake for 45 to 60 minutes longer or until apples are tender.
