Mini apple pie
  • 225g plain flour
  • 125g unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 50g Tate & Lyle Fair Trade Pure Cane Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
For the filling
  • 3 apples (such as Granny Smith or Bramley), 
  • 50g Tate & Lyle light brown soft sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
For the topping

2 tablespoons Tate & Lyle Fair Trade Pure Cane demerara sugar

  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F) and grease a 12-hole muffin tin.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the plain flour, Tate & Lyle granulated sugar, and salt. Add the cubed butter and rub it into the flour mixture using your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the beaten egg and cold water. Mix with a fork until the dough comes together. Gather the dough into a ball, wrap it in cling film, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the filling. In a saucepan, combine the diced apples, Tate & Lyle light brown soft sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until the apples have softened slightly. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  5. Take the chilled dough out of the refrigerator and roll it out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 3mm. Cut out circles slightly larger than the holes in the muffin tin.
  6. Line each hole of the muffin tin with a circle of dough, pressing it gently into the sides. Fill each pastry case with the cooled apple filling.
  7. Sprinkle a little Tate & Lyle demerara sugar over the top of each mini pie for a crunchy topping.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the mini apple pies cool in the tin for a few minutes. Carefully transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve the mini apple pies warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
