Apple Crazy

Bramley Apple Pie Week 2012
You all know that here at the Oakeley Arms, we LOVE a good pudding. But, what's our favourite???? Hmmmm, that's a tough one to answer, but we are fans of a delicious homemade apple pie..... Warm and sweet, straight from the oven; golden brown with dribbles of crunchy sugar, topped off with a good glug of cream or custard... yum!
Handy really, because this week is Bramley Apple Pie Week (8th - 14th October).  There are loads of variations on the classic apple pie. Do you have a pastry base as well as a pastry top? Puff or short? Caramel or not? Family sized or mini? Decisions, decisions!
The traditional apple pie is made from shortcrust pastry (top and bottom) and is filled with big chunks of bramley apples, sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. What's your favourite apple pie recipe? If you're coming to the Oakeley's Clwb Pwdin this week, then why not bring along your own perfect pie? The Clwb Pwdin takes place on the 2nd Thursday of every month.
Have your pie and eat it....
