100ml Water
1/4 Tsp Mace

2oz Unrefined Sugar

 Start by measuring out all of your pastry ingredients into a bowl.


Knead the pastry until combined.

Place your dough in between a sheet of cling film and a sheet of baking paper then roll out to the size of your cake tin. 

Lay the baking paper side into the cake tin, Push the pastry into the tin then peel off the cling film. 

Stab the pastry bottom.

Place clay beads onto the pastry and pop into the oven on gas mark 5 for 12-15 minutes.


Whilst the pastry is in cooking, prepare the apple filling.

Peel and core your apples.

You can slice your apples in half and then slice them or like me slice them straight across so it leaves a whole in the middle.



Add the sugar, lemon juice and spices to the apples and mix until all of the apple slices are covered. 







The pastry should be golden brown.



Layer the apples around the bottom of the pie. 

Keep 15 pecans whole and then crush the rest.

Sprinkle some of the broken pecans over the apple. 
Keep layering the apples and pecans until you have used them all.

Put the pie in the oven for 15 minutes then check and turn the cake tin if needed and leave for another 10 minutes.

Now make your caramel, put all the ingredients for the caramel into a high speed blender and blend until smooth. 


Pour your caramel over the top then place your whole pecans artistically on the top.

Put your pie back into the oven on gas mark 9 for 5 minutes then check and turn if needed then back in for another 5 minutes.
  



Now you can enjoy it!

Serve it with coconut cream mixed with vanilla paste.
