A delicious apple dessert from Ireland. The pastry is not as firm as regular pastry. Be sure to GREASE the pie pan.



  • 2 cups hot mashed potato
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour


  • 4 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon melted butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

  2. Combine potato, butter, cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar. Mix well.
  3. Blend in flour. Reserve 3/4 cup for top of the pie.
  4. On a sheet of waxed paper or better still parchment paper, pat the remaining dough into a circle slightly larger than a 9-inch pie plate.
  5. Place a well-greased pie plate over dough. Lift and invert the dough into the pan. Remove waxed paper.
  6. Arrange apple slices of potato mixture.
  7. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar.
