  14. 1 x Apple Cider Or JuiceUse cooking apples like Macs or Granny Smith's. Core and peel then

  15. Divide the pastry almost in half and roll out the larger half on a lightly

  17. pastry. Trim the edge to 1/2-inch beyond the rim of the pie tin. Combine

  18. 1 cup of apple cider and the sugar in a 3-quart saucepan and cook, over high heat, until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat

  26. the mixture into the pastry lined pie tin. Roll out the remaining pastry

  27. to an 11-inch circle. Fold the pastry gently, so as not to tear it, into quarters and cut slits in the folds. Gently unfold the pastry on to the
