Apple & Berry Pie


We've talked in the past about the American-isation of various corners of our society. In my opinion, we need not be hysterical about the American-isation of our dinner tables. Unless there is any aerosol cheese involved: that is a crime against humanity, deserving of a session at The Hague.  Apple Pie, however, is a different matter.

I will spend my life trying to emulate my grandmother's Apple Pie. She made apple pie. Full stop. This isn't hers, but it's a pretty darn good pie (even if I do say so myself). The addition of a variety of berries makes it all the better: my grandmother also made boysenberry pie, which I adored as a child.  This is my nod to both.

This pie cooks beautifully straight from the freezer.  Put it straight into your moderately hot oven for around 45- 60mins. Dust with icing sugar just before serving.

Loaded with granny smiths, which we lovingly spiced and cooked, and a sprinkling of blackberries to boot. I cannot explain the disappointment of a beautiful pie filled with raw apple... so we won't have that.  Wrapped in our homemade sweet shortcrust it's a must have for an evening in, or a picnic out.
