 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       oz           SR flour
    4       oz           Butter
    2       oz           Caster sugar
    4                    Cooking apples
    1                    Egg, beaten
                         Little milk
                         Melted butter for glazing
                         Ground cloves or cinnamon
                         Caster sugar for dusting
   Set oven to 425F or Mark 7. Grease an 8 inch round
   flan tin. Rub the butter into the flour in a bowl and
   stir in the sugar. Peel and grate two of the apples
   and add to the flour with the beaten egg. Mix well
   together. If the dough is rather firm add a little
   milk to soften. Turn the dough on to a floured surface
   and knead lightly. Press evenly into the base of the
   tin. Peel, core and slice the remaining apples and
   arrange, neatly overlapping, on top of the dough.
   Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a pinch of
   ground cloves or cinnamon and a little caster sugar.
   Bake for 25-30 minutes and serve warm.
