Instructions

Apple Pie Filling

  3. Add the cornstarch and stir constantly, until the mixture has thickened
  4. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl
  5. Place in the fridge to cool completely.

Cookie Dough (Pie Crust)

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl or food processor
  2. Add the butter and use your fingers to rub it into the flour, or blitz it in the food processor, until it reaches a sand-like consistency with a few small chunks
  3. Add the cold water and mix until a rough dough forms
  4. Divide the dough in half and roll each half out to 0.5cm / 1/4" in thickness
  5. Transfer the dough to a baking tray and chill the dough for 30 minutes in the fridge
  6. Cut one half of the dough into circles with a medium-sized round cookie cutter and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  7. Top each round with a tablespoon of the chilled apple pie filling
  8. Cut the other half of the dough into 1cm / 1/3" thick strips and arrange them in a lattice pattern on top of each cookie
  9. Use the same cookie cutter to cut off any excess dough from the lattice so the assembled cookie is round
