Silver Style : Apple Strudel Crumble Pie

Shortcrust Pastry
2 ½         Cups – Flour
1              Cup – Butter
1              Teaspoon – Salt
1              Teaspoon – Sugar
4-6          Tablespoon – Ice Water
1)      Cut butter into cubes and freeze for 15 – an hour
2)      Combine flour, salt & sugar (then add butter 6-8 times)
3)      Add water 1 Tablespoon at a time
4)      After combined smoothly, wrap the dough with cling film and place in the fridge until the Crumble and Filling has been made

** I recommend freezing the butter in advance while you get all the other ingredients for the filling
**Use a Hand Blender to save time (if so, use pulsing technique to ensure all butter is combined evenly)
** Roll the dough with some flour to prevent it from sticking onto the counter top

Cinnamon Crumble
¼             Cups – Light Brown Sugar
¼             Cups – All Purpose Flour
2              Tablespoons – Butter
½             Teaspoon – Cinnamon
Combine till desired Crumble sizes
*Personally, I prefer not to over mix and get large crumble pieces.
*Optional – Add Oats for a more crunchy texture (may have to add more butter to even out)

¾             Cups – Sugar
2              Tablespoon – All Purpose Flour
1              Pinch – Salt
¾             Cup – Sour Cream
3              Large – Egg Yolks
1              Teaspoon – Vanilla extract / 1 vanilla podded seeds
½             Teaspoon – Lemon Zest


4-6 Granny Smith Apples (Peeled Cored and Cut into pieces of your choice)

1)      Preheat oven to 200°C
2)      Whisk Sugar, Flour & Salt
        - then add Sour Cream, Egg Yolks, Vanilla & Lemon Zest
       (Whisk until smooth)
3)      Sprinkle as much Cranberries as you like as a bottom layer (or on top of the apple slices)
4)      Arrange Apple Slices
5)      Pour Sour Cream mixture over Apples
6)      Bake for 15 mins @ 200°C
7)      Reduce to 180°C for 45-50 mins longer



Vanilla ice-cream is definitely great to have it with a slice!
My friends enjoyed having this as much as I made it.
 Off to make myself a cuppa tea with it (:
