Apple pie is one of the child hood favourites.  Looking at my recipes online, I seem to have a few varied versions.  In this recipe I have gone right back to how we used to make it fresh from start to finish.  Keeping things simple always works for me.  This is uncompl...

In the days when went to Sicily for our family holidays, we would drive for hours to find the shop that sold the best biscuits. We would purchase kilos of the almond biscuits and then have them stuffed in our luggage, rucksacks, handbags, pockets and this was alongside...
