Serving and Keeping Advice:

Apple tart recipes go back to the time of Chaucer. The 1381 recipe is the earliest known apple tart recipe in the world, and lists the ingredients as good apples, good spices, figs, raisins and pears. The core of the recipe is a casing of pastry. Saffron was used for coloring the pie filling.
Today, the English style incorporates generous layers of sweetened slices of, usually, Bramley apple; layered into a dome shape to allow for downward shrinkage, and thus avoid a saggy middle, then topped with butter or lard shortcrust pastry, and baked until the apple filling is cooked.
In English-speaking countries, apple pie, often classified as a satisfying 'comfort' food, is a dessert of enduring popularity, whether it's eaten hot or cold, on its own or with ice cream, double cream, or custard.
