Tips to make apple and fig pie

Pastry – to make your pastry flaky and light, use cold butter. Also, place your pastry in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Ideally if you have time you can place your pastry in a freezer overnight. It will help to create these lovely buttery layers. Also, keep kneading the pastry dough to the absolute minimum. If you overwork your pastry dough it will become cakey, this is due to gluten formation and this is bot what we want.

Apple and pie filling – use fresh ripen figs and soft apples. Moreover, do not forget to peel your apples as it will help apples to soften. It makes all the difference.! If you do not peel your apples, it will take FOREVER for apples to soften – yeap. I have learned the hard way. You can use any kind of apples but I would recommend Granny Smith as they fall apart quicker.

Size of pie tin matters. I used 23cm pie tin my apple pie was quite flat – as you may see in the photos. Feel free to use smaller tin , for example 18 cm for a thicker pie.
