Apples with nice fat Rum soaked sultanas encased in crispy filo pastry is not only yummy but looks good and more to the point it's nice and easy to make too.
Now, British Pie week is about to be upon us (4th to 10th March) so whatever pie you like best, you must be making one! From traditional Steak or Steak and Kidney, Chicken and Mushroom, Chicken and Ham though to savoury pies such as the much loved by almost everyone, the Apple Pie.
Readers of this blog will know by now I don't really do baking. Why? Because I can't do it - I have no patience for measuring flour and stuff. So for me, the easiest and 'cheats' option to buy ready made pastry. Filo pastry is marvelous stuff and makes everything so much easier - there's no need to fuss about trying to make it look good - just wrap your pie in filo and throw some extra sheets on top and the jobs a good'un!
