Serve: 4  Prep: 35 minutes Cook: 25-30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 200 grams plain white flourblackcurrant-pie-web-size
  • a pinch of salt
  • 120 grams butter
  • 50 grams castor sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups Sujon Frozen Blackcurrants
  • 1/8 cup of plain white flour
  • 1/2 cup of caster sugar
  • a little extra beaten egg

Sweet Pastry:

  • Sift the first measure of flour and salt into a large bowl or food processor.
  • Cut the butter into small cubes and rub into the flour either with your hands or using the food processor, until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Whisk the castor sugar and egg together and add to the mixture to make a firm dough.
  • On a lightly floured bench knead the mixture until it forms a smooth ball.
  • Handle as little as possible to prevent the pastry from becoming hard when baked.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Pie:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C
  • On a lightly floured board carefully roll out half of the pastry until it’s approximately 5mm thick.
  • Take half the dough and line a small 20cm pie dish with the pastry.
  • Just before adding the Sujon blackcurrant to the pie base, toss them together with the 2nd measure of flour and caster sugar. Pile the floured Sujon blackcurrants into the pie base.
  • Roll out second dough on floured surface to size of your pie dish. Cut into twelve 1-inch-wide strips. Arrange 6 strips across pie. Form lattice by arranging 6 strips diagonally across first strips. Gently press ends into crust edges.
  • With a pastry brush, lightly coat the top with a little extra beaten egg.
  • Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until the pastry is gorgeously golden.
