Ready In: 40mins

Serves: 8


  • 8 apples, peeled, deseeded and diced

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • ¼ cup flour (I used wholemeal)

  • 1 packet filo pastry

  • ¼ cup nuttlex, melted + 1 additional tsp

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar (optional)


Step 1.Preheat oven to 180°C . Heat 1tsp of butter in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the diced apples, sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and cook for 8-10 mins or until apples are soft

Step 2. Add flour and mix until the liquid has been absorbed and the apple mixture is no longer runny. Set aside to cool

Step 3. Line or lightly spray a 20cm loose-based cake tin with oil. Roll out filo pastry flat and lightly brush the surface of the first sheet with butter before lining the tin, leaving any excess pastry hanging over the edge. Repeat this step so that your tin has been lined with 8-9 layers of the filo pastry

Step 4. Spoon the apple mixture into the tin. Fold the overhanging pastry up and over the top of the pie

Step 5. lightly brush the surface of another two filo sheets, gently scrunch each sheet and add to cover the top of your pie. Brush the top of your pie with any remaining nuttlex

Step 6. Bake for 15-20 mins or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp

Step 7. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with a side of vanilla ice cream.
