Long Description to add
This is without doubt the easiest apple pie in the world. No special pie tins needed, no lids to be cut and fitted, no tiresome fluting of edges. It's also a beginner's dream because, somehow, the more haphazard the whole thing looks, the better.
Once on a holiday in New England, I found it very hard to order any dessert other than pecan pie. Since then I have loved to try out all the different variations of this classic - and this one here achieves, I feel, just the right degree of moist sti
For waist-watchers and the health conscious, the growing popularity of filo pastry is, I'm sure, warmly welcomed.
A less frugal version of this can be made for a special occasion by substituting 1/2 pint (275ml) cream for the milk.

Courgettes, mint and feta are three ingredients that have a summery feel. Add potatoes to make little cakes and you have a treat for veggies and meat eaters alike - a great recipe for a summer buffet.
