DirectionsGrease a 9 inch deep spring form pan with Pam, then line the bottom piece with baking/parchment paper. After you close the pan around the paper cut off the extra around the bottom. Grease and lightly flour the pan, ensuring a thin and complete coat.Sift the flours, then rub in the butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. (I cube the butter and let it melt slightly). Mix in the sugar and add 1 egg, and almost all the milk.Mix with a flat bladed knife until the mixture comes together, adding more milk if necessary. (Pastry should be slightly crumbly) Turn onto a lightly floured sheet of baking/parchment paper and gather together. Roll 2/3 of the pastry between two sheets of baking/parchment paper for the bottem and sides of the pan. Ease into the tin, then rool out the remaining pastry large enough to cover the top. Chill all pastry for 20 minutes.Put the apples, rind, cloves, cinnamon, sugar and 2 cups of water in a large pan. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes until tender. Remove from heat drain and cool. Discard the rind, cloves and cinnamon then spoon into the crust.
Its a pretty good filling, but like I said this makes a huge pie, when I use the Baker's Apple Pie Filling I use 2 jars which equals 4lds of filling. Very good either way :)Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spoon filling into pan, cover with remaining pastry. Lightly brush with the remaining beaten egg over the edges to seal. Prick the top with a fork, trim the edges and crimp to seal. Brush top with egg and sprinkle with superfine sugar and bake for 50 minutes. (I like to check the pie every few minutes to turn it and make sure not to burn it)Let pie completely cool before you open the springform pan or else it will fall apart.
