British Pie Week is coming up from today and according to a recent study, the average Brit scoffs a whopping 2,160 pies over their adult lifetime. With a traditional apple pie being one of the nation’s favourite flavours, London Mums would like to share a tasty spin on this modern classic. This recipe for Apple Pie with Blackberries and Clementine has been kindly donated by Denby Pottery.
- 250g plain flour
- 110g cold, cubed butter
- 4 apples
- 150g blackberries
- Zest & juice of 1 clementine
- 1.5 tsp cinnamon
- 1.5 tsp ground ginger
- Handful of brown sugar
Pre heat your oven to 170c. Rub the butter into the flour until a crumb has formed then add 3-5 tbsp water until you have a moist dough but still with a bit of crumble. Cut in half and roll one half out to 0.5cm thick. Place into an over proof medium size dish or small oven proof ramekins if you’re making individual portions.
Trim the edges of the pastry, prick all over with a fork and blind bake for 7 minutes. Whilst that’s cooking peel and chop your apples into small cubes. Add to a bowl with the blackberries, clementine, sugar and spices. Mix well.
Fill your pie crust to the brim and cover with the other half of your pastry. Roll out the off-cuts and decorate as you like! It looks stylish to plait around the edge or have fun making autumn leaves.
Egg wash and bake for 15-20 minutes until the pie is a rich golden brown.
Serve with double cream, vanilla custard or caramel ice cream to elevate the flavours.
