4 Golden delicious apples
peeled halved and
3 Tablespoon(s) Lemon Juice
5 Tablespoon(s) Calvados, apple brandy
2 Tablespoon(s) Caster sugar
150 Double cream, 1/4 pint
225 Gram(s) Flour, 8oz
1 Pinch(s) Salt
75 Gram(s) Ground almonds, 3oz
75 Gram(s) Caster sugar, 3oz
2 Egg yolks
175 Gram(s) Unsalted butter, softened
130 Whipping cream, 4 1/2fl oz
Preheat the oven to 180øC/350øF/gas mark 4. Place the apple havles
in a shallow oven-proof dish, and sprinkle with lemon juice to stop
them going brown. Pour 3 tbsp of the Calvados over the top, cover with
foil and bake for 15-20 minutes until soft but still firm. Leave to
cool. To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt on to a work
surface. Sprinkle with ground almonds and make a well in the centre.
Gradually incorporate the sugar and egg yolks, then the butter. Knead
lightly, wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Roll out half
the pastry and line a 23cm (9 inch) flan tin. Arrange the drained
apples (save the liquid) in the tin. Roll out the remaining pastry,
cut a 5cm (2 inch) circle from the middle and cover the apples. Brush
with water and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 200øC/400øF/gas mark 6
for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is pale gold. Whip the cream
until thick and beat in the cooking liquid with the rest of the
Calvados. Spoon into the middle of the pie while hot. Converted by
