If among my favorite recipes have been pies, I love them, especially with fruits, but one of my favorites is apples's pie.
If you know me by a while you can see that I have made several apple's pies, but always one finds something new, the filling, the fruit or the texture.
This apple pie is a classic, from the scrumptions filling to the Double Crust Pastry.
It's homemade goodness at its very best.

200 grams (1 cup butter)
cubed and chilled
400 grams (2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons sugar
To make the pastry rub the butter into the flour the add just enough cold water to form a pliable dough.
Roll out half of the pastry on a floured surface and use it to line a pie dish.
Toss the apples with the cinnamon, cornflour and sugar, then pack the mixture in the pastry case.
Roll out the rest of the pastry and lay it over the top.
Trim away any excess and crimp to seal. Make a hole in the centre for the steam to escape.
Brush the top of the pie with milk and sprikle with sugar, then bake for 40 minutes or until the pastry is cooked through underneath and golden brown on top.
