Step 1.

Peel and core the apples. Chop up the apples into small 2cm cubes.

Step 2.

Mix the apples with brown sugar, cornflour, cinnamon and ½ tsp salt.

Step 3.

Put the apples in a small pan with the water and cook for 10 mins until the apples have slightly softened and the sauce has thickened.

Step 4.

Transfer to a plate or a baking dish and spread out thinly to cool down completely.

Step 5.

Roll out the shortcrust pastry until it’s roughly half the thickness and cut it into 10 small rectangles to make 5 pies.

Step 6.

Add a tbsp of the apple filling to the centre and brush the edges with egg wash.

Step 7.

Add another piece of pastry on top and close the seam with a fork. Trim the edges and pop the pies on a baking sheet.

Step 8.

Freeze the pies for 30 mins.

Step 9.

Get a big pot of oil ready for frying. Heat the oil to a medium-high temperature (roughly 180°C).

Step 10.

Once the oil is hot, deep fry the pies for 5 mins or until golden brown and crispy.

Step 11.

Drain on a paper towel and enjoy piping hot.
