Step 1

Make the pastry by placing all of the pastry ingredients into a food processor and running the processor until a dough forms around the blade. Remove onto a floured surface and bring together into a ball. Split in two and roll each portion out, press one portion into the base of a pie tin and roll the other out flat (for the pie top). Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Step 2

Place all the filling ingredients into a bowl and combine well. Pour into the pie case. Arrange top piece of pastry over top and bake at 180°C for 40 minutes.

Serve warm, fresh from the oven with cream or ice cream

Tip: If the pastry is too hard to work with when rolling out, put it in the fridge for a while to firm up a bit and it will make it easier to roll out
