The King's Head in Hursley has kindly shared their delicious homemade apple and blackberry pie recipe. What will you serve yours with? Icecream or custard?

Ingredients

For the pastry;
  • 300g plain flour
  • 150g margarine or butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of water
For the filling;
  • 6 pink lady apples (or you choice of favourite)
  • 1 punnet blackberries
  • Sugar (to taste)
  • Caster sugar (to serve)

Method

  1. Prepare your filling first by chopping, stewing then cooling your fruit.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200C.
  3. Sieve the salt & flour into a bowl and then rub in your marg/butter until you get a breadcrumb texture.
  4. Add dashes of water and mix until your pastry has the consistency to roll out.
  5. Split your pastry in two, roll one half out large enough to cover the base of your baking tin & sides. Once done top with your stewed fruit & roll out your second piece of pastry large enough to place over the top. (Any additional pastry can be used to cut our decorative shapes for the top of your pie).
  6. Press down all your edges ensuring your pie is properly sealed & using your finger and thumb pinch all around the edges of the pie.
  7. Prick the top of your pie slightly then cook for approximately 40 minutes checking for a nice golden top.
  8. Once cooked dust with caster sugar & serve with your favourite ice cream flavour or custard!
