  • To make pastry, process flour, sugar and butter in a food processor until mixture resembles crumbs. Whisk egg yolk with 60 ml (¼ cup) iced water and add to flour mixture. Process until mixture comes together to form a dough. Shape into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Roll out pastry to 5 mm thick and use to line a 22 cm pie pan, trimming excess. Refrigerate until needed.
  • To make filling, combine all ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C. To make topping, combine flour, sugars, butter and a pinch of salt in a food processor and process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spoon filling into pie pan, spreading evenly, then spread with topping. Bake for 1 hour or until apples are tender and pastry is golden.
  • Serve warm with pouring cream.

Chilling time:  Allow 2 hours.
