Apple - Mince Pie

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA
Apple - Mince Pie

Introduction

A Christmas made straight from the heart... and home! Buckwheat flour added into the crust makes for both a tender and flavourful dough. A layer of thin apple slices underneath hearty spiced mincemeat adds texture and interest to the dessert too! I used my own home-made mincemeat for this, but jarred is fine... just pick one you like!

I highly recommend you serve this with rum raisin ice cream!

Ingredients

    2 tsp ground flaxseed
    2 tbsp hot water
    2/3 cup flour
    1/2 cup buckwheat flour
    2/3 cup shortening
    1 tbsp vinegar
    2-3 tbsp ice water
    1 large tart apple, peeled and thinly sliced
    3 cups prepared mincemeat

Directions

Combine flaxseed and hot water in a small dish, set aside to cool completely.
Place flours into a mixing bowl.
Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Add cooled flaxseed mixture and mix in.
Combine vinegar and ice water and slowly add it to the flour, mixing until it just comes together. You may not need all the water.
Wrap dough in cling film and refrigerate 12 hours.
Preheat oven to 450F.
Roll out 2/3 of the dough and line a 9" pie tin, trimming the excess dough and reserving it for decoration.
Line the shell with a layer of the thinly sliced apples.
Pour mincemeat overtop of the apples.
Using the reserved pie dough, cut out a lattice or other shapes and decorate the top of the pie.
Place into the oven and bake 10 minutes.
Reduce the oven temperature to 350F and bake a further 30 minutes.
Cool completely on a rack before serving.
