Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Really delicious - the pastry is very crumbly and a little tricky to handle when you're lining the tin but it's well worth the effort. The recipe does say this and encourages you to patch up where necessary! I used half the amount of apples with a slightly smaller pie tin than suggested and it was still a really deep pie. It was all gone within an hour of baking so a big family hit.

    The end result is lovely, even with its massive biscuit crust. Just don't eat too big a dinner beforehand!
