Fruit Pie's picture
For sweet pastry
  Wholemeal flour 6 Ounce (170 Gram)
  Sea salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Raw cane sugar 1⁄2 Ounce (15 Gram, Plus Extra To Sweeten)
  Butter/Margarine 4 Ounce (115 Gram)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Fruit 1 1⁄2 Pound (680 Gram)

1) Sieve together the salt, sugar and flour into a bowl. Mix well.
2) With two knives, chop the fat into the flour. Rub ingredients together till small crumbs have formed.
3) A few drops at a time, add ice-cold water. Knead till a light but firm dough has formed. Cover and allow to stand for some hours in a very cool place.

4) As required, prepare the fruits and place them in a pie dish. In the center, use an inverted egg cup or a pir crust support. Add a lavish knob of butter to the filling as this will improve the flavor.
5) On a well-floured surface, roll out the pastry.
6) Moisten the pie dish's edges and transfer the pastry. With a knife, press down and decorate the edges.
7) Utilize the scraps of the left-over pastry to decorate the crust in the shape of leaves, flowers, etc.
8) Brush milk all over the pastry. Alternatively, a beaten egg can be used.
9) Bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes, moving to a lower shelf once the first 10 minutes of cooking have elapsed.

10) Serve hot or cold, as preferred, accompanied with custard or cream.
