5th – 11th march is the British Pie Week!
Hubby insisted we should celebrate this great holiday by eating pie every day. So today I’ve made apple pies. Enjoy!
I decided to update the old post as the pie I made a few years ago didn’t look as good as the one I made this year, 2015. The recipe I’m using now is slightly different than the old one, as I added 1 egg in the pastry. The flavour is so much better.
For decorating I usually cut the dough into long strips to make a woven lattice on top. Now I’ve tried something different with leaves and it looks amazing. I don’t want to make the pies too doughy as I prefer to taste the filling. Another aspect is that I feel I would add calories. This pie had 1580 calories (without the custard) and I would say there are 6 good size portions. This means that a slice of pie had only 263 calories, almost half the calories that are in 1 shop-bought cupcake.
