Step 6: Bake for five minutes.

Filling

Step 1: Peel, core and finely slice the apples.

Step 2: Cover with lemon juice.

Step 3: Add to a pot with a teaspoon of cinnamon and half of the apple juice.

Step 4: Place over medium heat and simmer for five minutes, then add sugar.

Step 5: Add the vanilla and cornstarch to the remaining apple juice and mix.

Step 6: Simmer the apples for a further two minutes until the sugar has dissolved then add the mixture.

Step 7: Simmer another minute or two until liquid has thickened.

Step 8: Pour the apple filling into the prepared pie crust.

Step 9: Cover the apple filling with the filo scraps. Weave them if you’re feeling fancy but random shapes will do just as long as the filling is covered.

Step 10: Bake for 25 minutes.
