Tuck In Tuesday - Apple & Caramel Pie

Tuck In Tuesdays - home cooked food for busy working parents!

Apple and Caramel Pie

4 Cooking apples - peeled, de-cored and sliced
30g unsalted butter
Pack of shortcrust pastry
Tin of Carnation caramel (face it, its midweek, I'm a working Mother, who has time to make caramel from scratch????)
handful of sultanas
Milk and caster sugar to glaze

Vanilla Ice Cream, cream or custard to serve

Pre heat oven to 190 degrees

Melt butter in a large pan and add apples, cook until still slightly crunchy. 

 Pour in half the tin of caramel, mix and put to one side to cool.

All you are doing is melting the caramel, takes less than a minute.

Roll out half of your pastry and line greased and floured pie tin - I use my Nan's glass pie plates, seriously these plates are older than me!

Add cooled apple mixture & sprinkle sultanas over the top

Roll out the second half of the pastry

Brush the edge of the pastry in the tin with water, place top half of pastry on top and 'pinch' the two layers together

Remember to cut a cross in the top of the pie to allow air to escape.

Brush milk on the top and sprinkle a little caster sugar over the top of the pie (caster sugar optional, a bad habit inherited from my Nan!)

Cook until golden brown

Serve with ice cream, cream or custard

Now TUCK IN & enjoy!

Lets Make things easy

Its ready made pastry & caramel, doesn't come more easier!  To save time you could make more than one pie and when cold cut into family sized potions and freeze in clingfilm and tin foil.  Lasts for one month.
Meal Alternatives

Try adding toasted almonds or chopped walnuts instead of sultanas.

Don't forget to come back next Tuesday for
