4.

To make filling, add apples to a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix sugar, macadamias and flour together. Sprinkle spices over apples, then stir flour mixture through to coat. 

5.

Spoon half apples into pastry case. Scatter raspberries over. Top with remaining apples.

6.

On a lightly floured surface, roll remaining pastry out to a 25cm round. Cut into 1.5cm strips. Arrange over pie in a crisscross pattern, weaving to create lattice.
