In the middle of winter, a warm family friendly dessert is a big winner. Check out this recipe for a delicious apple pie.


  • 5 Red Apples (625g)
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar (34g)
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon (2g)
  • 1 Pinch Mixed Spice (1g)
  • 1/2 Fresh Lemon (50g), zest finely grated, juiced
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup (40g)
  • 2 Tablespoons Water (40g), warmed
  • 6 Sheets Filo Pastry (30g)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Coat a 22cm pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. Peel, core, and slice apples thinly.
  3. Combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon, mixed spice, lemon juice and lemon rind in a large bowl and set aside.
  4. In a cup, mix the maple syrup with the warm water.
  5. Stack the filo sheets on a clean surface. Working quickly, brush the top sheet with the maple mixture and lay on the pie dish. Push the filo into the dish, leaving the sides overhanging.
  6. Brush the next sheet and lay it crooked across the first sheet.
  7. Brush the following sheets and layer each crooked so that a full circle of ‘overhanging’ filo occurs.
  8. Spoon apple mixture into the pie dish.
  9. Gather overhanging sides of filo sheets up to form a galette-style pie (where some of the fruit remains exposed in the centre).
  10. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
