Leaving out the apple, mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, cover and let sit overnight to allow the fruit to absorb the brandy.
Stir in grated apple.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, and salt, rub in the margarine and then a little bit at a time add cold water until you get a firm yet rollable dough mixture.
Wrap your dough in saran wrap and allow to cool in the refrigerator for about 30 mins.
Constructing the Pies
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a 12 hole muffin tray.
Roll the pastry out, about 1/4cm thick, and cut out 12 circles of pastry (slightly larger than muffin tray holes)
Press the discs of pastry gently into the muffin tray, with a fork, prick the bottom of each, and fill with a tbsp of the filling mixture, then cut out 12 toppings of pastry and place on top of the filling.
Brush with almond milk, sprinkle with sugar and bake for about 25 minutes until the pastry is crisp and slightly browned.
