Autumn Fruit Pie

29 August 2010

This is a really delicious pie.  I am a diabetic so loads of sugary foods are a real no go area... 
This pie is quick and simple to make and uses our fruit from the garden.  By the time it gets to the end of August we have more berries and apples than we know what to do with...  This pie is a cross between an apple pie and a summer pudding and equally delicious warm or cold.

1 pack of jus rol short crust pastry
a little milk for sealing edges and glaze
mixed berries (blackberries, boysenberries, autumn raspberries)
1 brambley apple chopped
caster sugar

I don't have a lot of time so I use a packet of just rol short crust pastry.  Divide in half, roll out and line the pie dish with half.  Then put in mixed fruit (enough to fill dish) then sprinkle some caster sugar on (I just use a little to take the tartness away from the fruit), add the chopped apple, put a little milk around edge of pastry, roll out other half of pastry and top the pie.  Seal with a fork around the edge, snip the top in a few spots, glaze top of pie with a little milk and sprinkle with a little caster sugar to give nice golden top to pie.  Bake in oven at 190 deg Celsius for about 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. 
Of course you can add more sugar to your own preferences.
