Ingredients

Pastry Dough (Or use 397g Pre bought Short Crust Pastry)

  • 300 g Unsalted Butter
  • 450 g Strong Bread Flour or Plain Flour
  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg Whisked
  • 60 - 100 ml VERY Cold Water

Filling

  • 350 g Bramley Apples Cored, peeled and cubed into even sized pieces
  • 1 Lemon Zest only
  • 110 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp Corn Flour
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon Optional
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger Optional
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg Optional
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cloves Optional
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cardamom Optional
  • 200 g Blackberries
  • 20 g Butter Melted

Egg Wash and topping

  • 1 Egg Whisked
  • 3 - 4 tbsp Demerera Sugar

Instructions

Pastry Dough

  1. Cube butter and place into the fridge.

  2. Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl.

  3. Slowly rub the butter into the flour mix until it resembles large breadcrumbs. You can do this in a processor.

  4. Add in the egg and mix.

  5. Now add in the cold water and mix very quickly to form a dough. 30 - 60 seconds max. Turn dough out onto surface. Form into rectangle (you can do this between 2 sheets of cling film to make life easier) and roll out to double the length. Fold the dough over and shape into a disk. Place covered in the fridge for 1-2 hours or overnight. Handle as little as possible!

Fruit Filling

  1. Toss chopped apples with lemon zest, sugar, cornflour, salt and ground spices.

  2. Add Blackberries and Butter.

    Taste and adjust the spicing/sugar according to your taste.

Fill and Bake

  1. Remove the dough from the fridge.

  2. Roll the dough to 5 mm thickness and tuck into a 20cm buttered pie dish making sure it is nestled in. Make sure to leave about 2 inches  dough over hanging. Tuck in the edges.

  3.  Add the fruit mixture to the bottom of the pie dish.

  4. Roll out the remaining dough from the fridge and cut into strips to form a lattice. Use a little flour if you need to. I got 10 strips. Assemble the lattice on top of the pie. Roll the edges in. Flute or crimp the edges using your fingers or a fork. Place in the fridge to chill for 15 - 30 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 200 C/Gas mark 6.

  6. Egg wash the top of the pie and sprinkle over the demerera.

  7. Place the pie on a tray and bake for 1 hour -1 hour 15 mins. Or until the crust is golden brown.

  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving with cream, custard or ice cream.

Recipe Notes

Tips for making Apple and Blackberry Pie

Similar sized apple cubes

As far as possible, try to cut the apple slices to the same size. This will help to create a more uniform texture throughout.

Use the Correct size dish

A deep dish is preferred here. You want a pie dish at least 2 inches in height.

Pre Brought Pastry

Don't skip the chilling stages if using pre brought pastry and adjust the sweetness of your filling if you like.

Substituions

Pastry Sugar - Icing Sugar can be swapped with Caster Sugar in the Pastry Dough.

Flour - Strong White Flour can be substituted for Plain Flour or you can use a mix of both

Fruit Filling - Taste your fruit mixture and adjust with sugar if needed.
