For the crumble topping you will need 1 cup of self raising flour 1 cup of walnut flour 125 grams of butter 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon PASTRY: Put the dry ingredients into a bowl. Cut up the butter into small pieces and add that to the flours. Mix it together using your finger tips until it looks like bread crumbs. Add a little cold water until it forms a soft dough. Now roll it out thinly and cut it using the rim of a mug. Place it into greased muffin tins and press it so that it covers half way up the tin. Prick the pastry all over using a fork. Now bake in an oven at 200degrees for about 12 minuets.
FILLING: Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan and cook until the apple is lovely and soft. Allow the apple mixture filling to cool before filling the pastry cases.
TOPPING: Mix the ingredients together using your fingertips. When the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs, spoon the mixture onto the apple filling.
