Autumn is upon us and the days are certainly feeling colder. Small son was asking this morning "how many more days until Summer!" He was appalled that it wouldn't be for another 8 months - and to be honest I really didn't need to be reminded of that myself!
At least at this time of the year there is an abundance of apples and pumpkin! After swimming club on Friday evening, I made an apple pie. It was lovely warm with a bit of cream, and perfect comfort for the cold, wet weather!
I used granny smith apples, which I sautéed in a small amount of butter, then added some cinnamon and a tablespoon of brown sugar.
The sweet shortcrust, using plain flour, icing sugar and egg yolks. (Recipe to follow).
