For the crust:

To make the base:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease two mini pie tins.

  7. Place in the oven with weighted balls or uncooked rice on top for 10 minutes.

To make the filling:

  1. Dice the apples.
  2. Place in a medium heated pot with cinnamon, coconut sugar, clove and nutmeg and stew until soft. Set aside.
  3. When cooled spoon apple filling into pie bases.
  4. Gather remaining dough and re-roll if required.
  5. Cut out 1/2-1cm thick strips.
  6. Use these to create a lattice design on the top of the pies.
  7. Brush the top with whisked egg or melted butter.
  8. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
