Star Pear Pie

December 8, 2017Sew White

Cold nights mean pie for pudding! It’s such a versatile dish to make and has thousands of possible fillings.  If the oven is going for dinner I love putting in a quick pie to cook for pudding.I tend to use premade shortcrust pastry from the supermarket as it saves time but on occasion I make it from scratch.

Ingredients
  • 500g premade shortcrust pastry
  • 6 pears
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 200g blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  2. Roll out the pastry and line the pastry dish. Trimming off the excess.
  3. Peel the pears and chop them up and put them in a bowl.
  4. Add the juice of half a lemon and stir.
  5. Add the blueberries and pour into the pie dish.
  6. Using the off cuts cut out the stars and place over the fruit.
  7. Whisk up an egg and using a pastry brush, brush the egg over the pastry so it goes a beautiful golden brown.
  8. Sprinkle with the granulated sugar and pop into the oven.
  9. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown.
  10. Serve straight away.

I loved how the stars looked after their bake. Plus the blueberries had burst making the filling a beautiful purple when it was served.

    I am a complete sucker for a beatifully decorated pie and follow quite a few IG accounts that focus purely on this. Yours is a STAR bake for sure.
