I was intrigued by this apple pie when I came across it in Nigella Lawson’s How to be a Domestic Goddess. It is completely encrusted (lame pun intended) in pastry dough - definitely not your usual apple crumble pie or lattice apple pie.
Having had one bad experience with the same pastry crust, I went against my better judgement and gave the recipe a second go.
The pastry turned out better than my first attempt, but I won’t be using this apple pie filling again. Although the finished pie looks rather impressive with very promising ingredients in the filling - pureed apples & apple chunks pan fried in butter, I found the apples a tad chunky. The texture was not at all what I’d expected it to be.
