Brown Butter Pastry


250g butter

3 cups flour

2 Tbsp sugar

1 egg

Ice cold water


Pie Filling


1.5 kg of peeled and diced apple

2 Tbsp flour

1 tsp cinnamon

3 Tbsp Brown sugar

50g butter.



Place the butter in a saucepan, place on medium. Leave the butter for approximately 8 minutes, swirling occasionally.

The milk solids will solidify at the bottom of the pan as the butter caramelises and develops a nutty flavour.

Strain into a glass container and place in the refrigerator until set.

Place the flour and sugar in your food processor, pulse and add the butter until the mixture is sandy.

Add the egg and ice water, mix until the dough forms a ball. Wrap in a large LilyBee and place in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
