Rustic apple pie

This is a great way to use all of those apples you’re trying to eat your way through! A very easy but tasty apple pie drizzled with white chocolate and served with vanilla creme fraiche!!
It is a wow factor for very little effort.
And to make things even easier, the pastry is store bought. Saving you a lot of time!! For some colour, garnish with fresh mint leaves!

Ingredients | Serves 8
1 Roll puff pastry, at room temperature
1 Egg, beaten
6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 C brown sugar
1 Tsp lemon juice
4 Tbs Butter
Pinch salt
1 Tub creme fraiche
1.5 Tbs Castor sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 C flaked almonds, toasted
50g White chocolate, melted

Roll out pastry on a floured surface. Grease a loose bottom quiche pan with spray & cook. Place pastry into the pan, press into the sides and prick with a fork. Brush with beaten egg and set aside. Toss the sliced apple with the lemon juice.
Melt the butter and mix with the brown sugar & salt and coat the apples with this mixture. Arrange the apples over the puff pastry and pour remaining brown sugar mixture over the apples.
Bake for 35-40 minutes until nicely browned and apples are soft.
Meanwhile, in a dry pan, toss the flaked almonds until fragrant and toasted. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave, stirring every 20 seconds.
Using a whisk, mix the castor sugar & vanilla essence into the creme fraiche.
Remove the pie from the oven. Cool for 5 minutes.
Slice the pie but keep its shape. Top with the toasted almonds and using a teaspoon, drizzle with the white chocolate. Top each slice with a tablespoon of creme fraiche and serve.
