It’s nearly the end of #BritishPieWeek and to celebrate its climax and to show that pies are for all year round, not just pie week, I have made a little video of myself making gluten free apple pies in the Judge Electric Deep Pie Maker to show you how easy it is! I used shop brought gluten free pastry for this, however you could make your own or use normal shortcrust pastry if you do need it to be gluten free. I am a bit of a rebel and leave the skin on my apples for the filling as I like the texture change and do not want lose any goodness that is in the apple skin.
- For the apple filling
- ⅔ large apples, cored and chopped into small chunks
- 1 tablespoon of water
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- For the pastry
- 500g block of gluten free or shortcrust pastry, rolled out until 3mm thick
- First make the filling, add all the filling ingredients into a saucepan and simmer gently on a low heat until the apple is softened and cooked through. Allow to cool completely.
- Cut out the pastry using the cutter provided and put the base pastry into the greased pie maker.
- Put the filling in and top with the pastry lid. Close the unit and make sure you fasten the clip.
- Turn the pie maker on at the plug and allow it to warm up. Once the green light is on, give the pies 10 minutes then check and leave them until they are done to your liking.
- Remove from the pie maker and serve immediately with custard or ice cream!
What is your favourite sweet pie filling?
