Everyone loves a McDonald's apple pie but did you know you can make them at home?

McDonalds Style Apple Pie


  • 450g plain flour

  • 2 tbsp sugar

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 250g butter - cold

  • 200ml water

  • 50g freeze-dried apples

  • 2 tbsp cherry jam

  • 50g butter

  • 2 tbsp golden syrup

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 100g sugar

  • Pinch salt

  • 250g peeled, chopped cooking apples

  • Oil for frying


  1. Mix together the flour, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Dip the butter into the flour, then grate on a large grater into the bowl of flour.

  3. Keep adding flour to the butter and grater to stop the butter sticking together in a mound.

  4. Mix the grated butter through the flour, then add enough cold water to bring it together.

  5. Roughly shape it into a flat rectangle then wrap it in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

  6. Blitz the freeze dried apples to a powder in a food processor.

  7. Put the butter, golden syrup, lemon juice, sugar, spice and salt into a saucepan and warm gently until the sugar has dissolved.

  8. Add the chopped apples and cook for 5 minutes, or until the apples are beginning to soften.

  9. Add the cherry jam and cook for 2 more minutes, then add the powdered apple, take off the heat and let it cool.

  10. Roll the pastry out to 4mm thick, and cut it into six 15 x 12cm rectangles.

  11. Put 2 tbsp of apple and cherry filling on one long side of each pastry rectangle. Fold the pastry over and seal the edges with water and by crimping with a fork.

  12. Cover with cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
