Maple Cider Pie Recipes

Ingredients :

175g plain flour

1.25ml salt

10ml sugar

115g cold butter or margarine

50g more iced water


15g butter

250ml maple syrup

50ml water

600ml cider

2 eggs, at room temperature, separated

5ml grated nutmeg

Method :

To make the pastry, sift the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter or margarine into the dry ingredients as quickly as possible until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the iced water over the flour mixture. Combine with a fork until the dough holds together. If the dough is too crumbly, add a little more water, 15ml at a time. Gather the dough into the a ball and flatten into a round. Place in polythene bag and chill for at least 20 minutes. Meanwhile, place the cider in a saucepan and boil until only 175ml remains, then cool.

Roll out the pastry between two sheets of greaseproof or non-stick baking paper to 3mm thickness. Use to line a 23cm pie dish. Trim around the edge, leaving a 1cm overhang. Fold the overhang under to form the edge. Using a fork, press the edge to the rim of the dish and press up from under with your fingers at intervals to make a ruffle effect. Chill the pastry case for at least 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F, Gas 4. To make the filling, place the butter, maple syrup, water and cider in a pan and simmer gently for about 5-6 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the mixture to cool slightly, then whisk in the beaten egg yolks.

Whisk the egg whites in a large bowl, until they from stiff peaks. Add the cider mixture and fold gently together until evenly blended. Pour the mixture into the prepared pastry case. Dust with the grated nutmeg. Bake at pie for 30-35 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is well set and golden. Serve warm.
