Apple Almond Pie

ingredients

serves 6
50 g (2 oz) pudding rice
450 ml (1 pint) milk
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar
175 g (6 oz) plain flour
100 g (4 oz) butter or block margarine
75 g (3 oz) ground almonds
1 egg, beaten
700 g (1 1/2 lb) cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
60 ml (4 tbsp) cider
creamy milk and caster sugar, to glaze

method

1. Put the rice and milk into a pan with 25 g (1 oz) sugar and bring to the boil, stirring. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Spoon over the base of a 1.1 litre (2 pint) pie dish.

2. Make the pastry: sift the flour into a bowl and rub in the butter. Stir in 50 g (2 oz) each of ground almonds and sugar and bind with the egg to a soft dough. Leave to chill for 45 minutes.

3. Spread the apple slices over the rice. Mix together the remaining sugar and ground almonds and sprinkle over the apples with the cider.

4. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface, handling it as carefully as possible, and cover the pie dish. Brush with milk and sprinkle with caster sugar.

5. Bake at 180°C (350°F) mark 4 for 25 minutes, then cover with foil and return to the oven for a further 35-40 minutes.
