"A moment later the puddings appeared... apple pies"

The desserts just keep on coming and for this Apple Pie recipe I wanted to try something different to make them extra magical!


This homemade deep-fried apple pie recipe is so easy to make and is the perfect finish to any Harry Potter Feast! I'll show you how to make puff pastry from scratch before filling with a rich, sweet and spiced apple filling. For an extra touch of magic I'm serving these pies up as individual lightning bolts!



Homemade Deep Fried Apple Pie Recipe Ingredients:

(makes 4 large apple pies)


For the puff pastry recipe

  • 250g plain flour

  • pinch of salt

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • 125ml water

  • 175g butter

For the apple pie filling recipe

  • 25g butter

  • 75g golden caster sugar

  • 3 cooking apples

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 3 tbsp water

  • 1 tbsp cornflour + 2 tbsp water

To finish

  • Egg for an egg wash

  • Oil for frying

  • icing sugar for dusting

Lightning Bolt Apple Pie Recipe Method:

  1. To begin, make the puff pastry by combining the flour, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix well and then make a hole in the middle. Pour in the middle and then work together until it forms a ball of dough.

  2. Lightly knead on a surface until smooth, wrap in clingfilm and then chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  3. Place the butter in between two pieces of baking paper and then roll out to a rectangle that is about 15 cm in length.

  4. Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll out on a lightly floured surface until it's about ½ cm thick and around twice as wide as the butter.

  5. Place the butter in the middle, fold over the edges and seal the butter in place. Roll this out into a long rectangle. Fold the bottom third up to the centre, and then the top third over the top, rotate and roll into another rectangle.

  6. Repeat this process 4 times. If the butter becomes to soft put the pastry into the fridge between the 2nd and 3rd fold. Once the pastry is fully laminated, wrap in clingfilm and chill for another 30 minutes while you make the filling.

  7. Peel and chop the apples into rough cubes. Melt the sugar and butter in a sauce pan and then add in the apples, cinnamon and water. Stir until combined and cook for 5-7 minutes until softened being careful to not let them go too mushy.

  8. Make a slurry with the cornflour and water and then add into the apple mixture. Cook for a final 2 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

  9. Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface and then use a lightning bolts stencil to cut out your pastry shapes. (Wizard Tip! It's best not to re-roll puff pastry too many times so try to get as much out of it as you can)

  10. Place 4 lightnings down on a board or tray and pipe the apple filling along the middle. Use beaten egg to wet the edges and then place another lightning bolt pastry piece over the top. Use a fork to crimp the edges and seal everything in place. Place into the fridge while you heat your oil.

  11. Heat the oil on a medium heat until hot (Wizard Tip! Use a scrap of pastry to see if it's hot enough. The pastry should start rapidly bubbling and go brown in around a minute). Fry the apple pies for 2 minutes on each side and then drain on a paper towel. Dust with icing sugar before serving

If you've been craving apple pie - this is definitely the recipe for you!
