Armetriding Apple PieArmetriding Apple Pie 

This pie eventually knocked the apple crumple off its "family favourite" perch.  It made excellent use of Mums cooking apples, those "sour to eat off the tree" apples, that never ever ripened.

Mum would bake about four of these pies at a time, on very large dinner plates. They almost became the stable diet of the family. Whilst excellent when hot, with lots of thick yellow custard,
but cold off the plate after playing down the river,
they were priceless.

The Apple Pie:
Armetriding Apple Pie

16 oz pastry case of shortcrust (for a top and bottom).

Filling:


3 large Mum cooking apples,
2 tablespoons water 2-4 oz.
granulated sugar, depending on sweetness of apples
1 dessertspoon caster sugar
15 oz. shortcrust pastry


Peel, core and slice the apples then place in a large pan with the both water and sugar.  Cook until apples are "just" soft.  Strain the juice off the apples (keep the juice, Mum would use everything).


Allow the apples to cool off and set oven to hot (400'F)
Mum used only the old black CI stove, no thermometer, just skill!

Divide the pastry in two and use one half to line the pie plate.
We still have one of Mums pie plates today (oven worn).
Place the apples over the bottom pastry and roll out the top pastry and use to cover the pie filling.

Trim the top pastry edge with a knife.

Don't forget to lightly moisten the contact area of the pastries.
Mum would seal the pie edge by pressing the top and bottom pastries together with a large spoon end or dinner fork prongs.
Vent the top pastry with the fork.
Glaze the top with water and sprinkle lightly with sugar.

Bake for approximately 35 minutes until pale golden brown.


Thick Yellow CustardBest serve warm with plenty of thick yellow custard.
