For the Pastry
Melt the butter in a saucepan over a high heat and add the apples and sugar. Toss over the heat until the sugar has dissolved and the apples are just starting to soften. Sprinkle in the cinnamon and spoon into a pie dish.
To make the pastry, measure the flour and butter into a processor and whiz until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and water and whiz again to form a ball.
Roll the pastry out on a floured work surface until it is 4cm (½ in) bigger than the pie dish. Brush the edge of the dish with water. Cut a thin 1cm (½in) strip from the edge of the pastry and lay on the edges of the dish and press down. Brush the strip with water. Lay the rest of the pastry over the top of the dish, pressing down on to the pastry strip to seal. Trim and flute the edges and then chill for 30 minutes.
Glaze the pie with a little milk and then sprinkle with sugar before baking.
