Method

  5. Add more water if needed, then shape into a circle about 2cm thick

  7. Place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
  8. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs in the middle of the pastry, leaving a 4cm border around the edge
  9. Toss the apple in the sugar and lemon juice until all the slices are coated, then pile on top of the breadcrumbs
  10. Roughly fold the edges of the pastry up and over the fruit, overlapping slightly as you go
  11. Brush the pastry with the egg white and bake for about 35 mins, until the pastry is crisp and the apple is tender
