This one is simple and a real winner (particularly if you are using your home grown apples)!
Apple & Coconut Pie
45 Mins Prep
75 Mins Cook
1. Place syrup, sugar and butter in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Add apple and cook for 10 minutes or until just softened. Remove from heat. Stir through oats, coconut and zest. Cool.
2. Meanwhile, grease a 25 x 4cm pie dish. Dust a clean work surface with flour. Roll out 1 pastry sheet to a 35cm square and use to line base of pie dish, leaving a 5mm overhang. Fill with cooled apple mixture. Top with remaining pastry sheet, pinching edges of sheets together to seal. Using a small round cookie cutter, cut a hole in centre of pie. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until firm.
3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 190°c. Brush pie with egg, then scatter over sugar crystals and extra oats. Bake for 1 hour or until pie is golden and bubbling through centre. Remove from oven and stand for 15 minutes. Cut into slices and serve warm with cream.
If the pie starts to brown too quickly while it’s baking in the oven, loosely cover it with a sheet of foil.
