Method

 
1. To make the pastry, sift the flour, sugar, mustard and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and, using your fingertips, rub into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the cheese. 2. Gradually sprinkle over the water and mix until a dough is formed. Wrap in clingwrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. 3. Preheat the oven to 190 ºC. To make the filling, peel the apples, cut into quarters and remove the core, then cut into bite-sized chunks. Place in a large bowl with all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly until all the apples are well-coated. Transfer the mixture to a 900 ml pie dish. 4. Roll the pastry out to a circle slightly larger than the dish. Cut a strip the width of the rim of the pie dish from the outside edge of the pastry and place it on the moistened rim of the pie dish. 5. Place the large piece of pastry over the pie, seal the two edges and trim. 6. Brush the top with milk and make a small hole in the centre. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the top is golden.
