  Blueberries 1 3⁄4 Pound (800 Gram, 7 Cups)
  Superfine caster sugar 3 Ounce (75 Gram, 6 Tablespoon, Plus Extra For Sprinkling)
  Superfine caster sugar 1 Tablespoon (Extra For Sprinkling)
  Cornflour 45 Milliliter (45 Milliliter, Cornstarch)
  Orange 1⁄2 , rind grated and juiced
  Lemon 1⁄2 , rind grated
  Ground cinnamon 2 1⁄2 Milliliter (1/2 Teaspoon)
  Butter 1⁄2 Ounce, diced (15 Gram, 1 Tablespoon)
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Whipped cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (For Serving)
For the pastry
  Plain flour 10 Ounce (275 Gram, 6 Tablespoon, All Purpose Flour)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Butter 3 Ounce, diced (75 Gram, 6 Tablespoon)
  White vegetable fat 2 Ounce (50 Gram, 1/4 Cup)
  Chilled water 75 Milliliter (4-5 Tablespoon)

1. To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Rub or cut in the fat until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
2. Sprinkle over most of the water and mix to a soft dough. Add more water if necessary. Knead lightly. Wrap in clear film (plastic wrap) and chill.
3. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/ Gas 6. Roll out half the pastry and use to line a 23cm/9in pie dish, allowing the excess pastry to overhang the edge.
4. In a bowl, mix the blueberries, caster sugar, cornflour, orange rind and juice, lemon rind and cinnamon. Spoon into the pastry case and dot with the butter.
5. Roll out the remaining pastry and use to make a lid for the pie. Trim off the excess, leaving a rim all round. Cut the rim at 2.5cm/1in intervals, then fold each pastry section over on itself to form a triangle. Re-roll the trimmings and cut out pastry decorations from them. Attach them to the pastry lid with a little of the beaten egg. Seal lattice top.
6. Glaze the pastry with the beaten egg. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.
