For the crust:
300g plain flour
1 tbsp sugar
200g cold butter, cubed
180ml ice water
For the filling:
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cornflour
1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp milk
Vanilla ice cream, whipped cream
- Combine the flour and sugar in a mixing bowl. Rub in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually stir in just enough water to bring the mixture together into a dough.
- Divide the dough into two discs and wrap in cling film. Refrigerate for one hour.
- Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Gently toss the berries with the sugar and cornflour.
- Remove one of the dough discs from the refrigerator and roll out on a floured work surface to a 25cm circle.
- Transfer carefully to the bottom of a 20cm pie tin and gently press it into the bottom and corners. Fill with the berries.
- Roll out the second dough disc to fit over the top of the pie; transfer in one sheet for a solid top or slice into strips to make a lattice top, alternating above and below each strip.
- Brush the beaten egg gently over the top of the crust. Bake 50-60 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling around the edges.
- Leave to cool completely before serving with ice cream, whipped cream or custard.
