Matcha Pie Crust
  1. Combine flour, sugar, matcha and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Add in the cubes of butter cutting it in with a fork or your fingers until the butter is no larger than a pea
  3. Slowly add in your cold milk or water until the flour mixture forms into a messy ball.  You may need to add a little more or less.
  4. Knead the dough until it comes together - but don’t over mix as you want to keep the butter whole so the dough is flaky
  5. Once the dough is combined split into two balls, flatten into discs, wrap in plastic and put into the fridge for at least 30 min
Apple Filling:
  1. To make the filling, peel and cut the apples into small cubes
  2. Mix with lemon juice, flour, cinnamon and sugar

How To Assemble:

    1. Roll the dough our on a floured surface about 1/3cm thick
    2. Cut out circles
    3. Place filling in the middle of a round and seal closed with another circle of dough on top.  You can add a little water to the edges to help hold as well as crimp the sides with a fork.
    4. Cut at a slit into the top of the pie to allow steam out while it cooks
    5. Place pies on a parchment lined baking sheet and put back in the fridge for 20 min to chill
    6. Cook for about 20min at 375°F or until the edges of the pies start to turn golden brown.
