Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. To make the pastry, sift the flour into a large mixing bowl and add the butter or margarine. Using your fingers, mix together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  2. Add about 3 tbsp cold water – 1 tbsp at a time – to bind the mixture into a ball. Then wrap it in cling film and leave to chill in the fridge while you prepare the apples, or for 30 mins if you have time.

  3. While the pastry is chilling, core the apples, then cut into even-sized chunks so they all cook in the same amount of time. Put the apples into the pie dish, drizzle over the honey and add the cinnamon, mixed spice and about 2 tbsp water.

  4. Roll out the pastry on a floured work surface until it is large enough to cover the pie dish. Using the rolling pin, carefully lift the pastry and lay it over the top of the apple mixture. Carefully trim off the excess pastry (this can be rerolled and cut into shapes to decorate the pie crust if you like) and press the pastry edges onto the dish to create a seal.

  5. Make a small cut in the pastry so that the air can escape during cooking, then brush with beaten egg to glaze.

  6. Bake the pie in the oven for 20-30 mins until the pastry is golden and sandy in appearance and the apple filling is bubbling and hot. Serve while still warm with crème fraîche, ice cream or natural yogurt.

Gellair Serves:4 CarbsPerServing:~2
Prep Time:10 min not counting set time Effort:Easy
Ingredients:
4 oz cream cheese @ room temperature 2 packets of sugar free, flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water 6 ice cubes
2 packets sweetener (optional)

How to Prepare:
Mix gelatin into boiling water until dissolved. Add ice cubes to
gelatin and stir to dissolve. Place mixture in freezer until gelatin
is semi-set (15 – 30 minutes, depends on your freezer).

Mix sweetener into cream cheese or simply stir cheese until smooth
if no sweetener is used. You may want to warm cheese in microwave
but be careful not to start cooking it.

Remove gelatin from freezer and whip with mixer on high until
frothy. Gelatin should be set enough to hold air bubbles you’re
introducing. Add cream cheese and continue to whip until fully
blended.

Place in refrigerator until set. Result is an airy, somewhat creamy
gel with strong flavoring.

Add a bit more cinnamon than suggested . Also recommend you but the pastry in a cross shape .Make sure you put water in pastry or it'll break up
