Apple pie is probably my favourite pie ever and most definitely one of the best desserts in the whole world.
It is also really great at this time of the year because you can add all those lovely spices like cinnamon to make it even more interesting.

This was my second apple pie in one week because the first one didn't look as nice and I wanted to perfect the recipe. I am quite happy with how this one looks and the recipe is great because it is so easy and easy to remember too. and you really don't need many ingredients at all. just get some lovely sweet apples, because it is really important what apples you get, I like gala, and get baking!

Believe me, everyone you share it with will absolutely love you!

Apples and Pears Pie

300 g flour
200 g butter
100 g sugar (you can use less though)
4-5 apples
1 pear

I usually make the dough first so you can
put it in the fridge and leave it to rest there.
So to make the dough, simply sieve the flower
onto the worktop. cut the butter into pieces
and work it into the flour. I like to use a knife
to do so.
Add the sugar and knead the dough to make it
even. don't do that for too long though
so the butter doesn't get too warm
make a ball, wrap it in foil and put it in the
fridge to rest.

Peel the apples and cut them into chunks (not too small)
put them in a pan and add some sugar and cinnamon.
leave them to caramelize over low heat for about
5 minutes or so. Then put aside and cover the pan.

You can now roll out the dough. you'll need about 2/3
of the dough for the base and the other 1/3 to cover
the pie.
first roll out the dough for the base and cover
your buttered cake tin with it.
Now roll out the rest of the dough into a circle.

pour the apple mixture into your dough and cut the
pears as you can see above and place on top
of the apples.
you can now cover it with the rest of the dough.
bake for about 40 minutes at about 180°C.

serve hot or cold. both lovely!
