For the crust:
11 1/2 tablespoons (175 g) butter (not salted) or margarine at room temperature - I use butter, screw margarine
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
2 1/4 cups Flour
pinch of salt
2/3 of a large egg (keep the other third for the end)
A splash of water
For the filling:
6 peeled apples (3 green, 3 red) - cut in chunks (I cut the apple in fourths and then cut that 3 or 4 long ways and then once across)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins (soak them in water or rum for at least 15 minutes before using)
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
extra flour for rolling out the dough
cut the apples, role out the dough and get the pie all set up for the oven.
Okay, so prepare your pie form by greasing the bottom and sides with butter and then covering it with flour.
