Start with preparing the apple filling. Melt the butter in a large pan and add thinly sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Cook the apples on medium heat until they are slightly softened and the juice from the apples is reduced to a syrup consistency.

Roll out the pastry and transfer it into the pie dish. Trim the edges and gently press to tuck the pastry into the cavity of the pie dish.

Fill the pastry shell with the spiced apple filling and spread it evenly. Roll out the other puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.

Place the puff pastry on top of the apple filling. Crimp or pinch the outer edge to seal the top and bottom crusts together.

Cut some decorations from the leftovers and place them on top. Eggwash the pastry and sprinkle on the demerara sugar.

Enjoy it with a scoop of ice cream and/or a dollop of custard. Click on 👇 "learn more" for the full recipe with step-by-step instructions.
