Apple and Mince Meat Pie
500g Plain flour
250g Butter cut into cubes
4-5 tbsp ice cold water or milk
3 cooking apples
2 tsp Ground cinnamon
2 tbsp Corn flour
2 tbsp Sugar
1 Medium free range egg beaten
250g Mince pie filling
To make the pastry pour the flour into a large mixing bowl, then add the butter
Using your finger tips rub the butter into the flour to create a texture similar to crumble.
Add the cold water a little at a time and using a metal spoon stir together until it forms a ball of dough.
Transfer the pastry to a lightly floured work surface and knead together for 20 minutes.
