Walnut and Apple Pie
Embrace the taste of autumn with this deliciously nutty, sweet and filling pie topped with delicious jam with any leftover fruit you have (or one of our Ugly Fruit jams that we handmake ourselves in our kitchens!). Perfect for having friends over as a lovely dessert or as a comfort dish for yourself!
350g plain flour
125g plain yoghurt
1 tbsp baking powder
2 baking apples
Orange juice, freshly squeezed
Fruit jam (we used apricot jam, but you can use any similar variant!)
Mix the flour, sugar, yoghurt, egg, butter and baking powder to create a dough (add a bit more flour if it feels too sticky); leave it to rest in a bowl covered with some cling film while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Put the shelled walnuts in a food processor with 2 tablespoons of honey and blend until it becomes a fine mixture (not a paste).
Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and toss them in the orange juice.
On a lightly floured surface, roll more than half of the pastry out and use it to line a 22-4 cm pie baking tray, buttered to prevent your pie from sticking to it.
Add a layer of [apricot] jam on top of the pastry and cover with the mix of walnuts and honey. On top of those, create a layer with the apple slices.
Roll the remaining pastry and use it to create the pastry lid for the pie, making sure to seal the edges (You could decorate the surface of the pie with any leftover apple slices, but make sure to sink them into the pastry layer to prevent them from burning). Cover the exposed pastry with a thin layer of butter and sprinkle some sugar on it.
Cook the pie in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 30-35 minutes, let it cool and enjoy!
