Homemade Irishstyle Apple & Clove Pie
I been making apple pie since I was ten years old helping my grandmother and my own mum in the kitchen, in some families it's a secret they would not tell any one outside the family.
There is nothing nicer than walking into a traditional Irish kitchen and smelling the wonderful aroma of freshly baking apple pie.
Except that is a slice of apple pie straight out of the oven with a dollop of freshly whipped cream. Hope you like and enjoy...and shooosh!! it's a secret.....

Once done set aside a prepare the apples.
Mix together the ground cloves with the sugar ,add to the pan with apples .
Cook the apples until they are soft, remove from heat.
Moistening the edges with the egg glaze to seal the lid.
With a rolling pin lightly roll it over the edges of apple pie to trim off the ends.
I always make an apple with two leafs on either side just how I was shown by my Grandmother and my own Mother.
Place the apple pie into a pre-heated oven at 190c/375f for 25 minutes, until the pastry is golden.
