Serves: 2 x 10cm pies
Ingredients
  • Pie Crust
  • 90g (1⅓c) pastry flour
  • 20g (1/3c) plain flour
  • 8g (3/4 tbsp) sugar
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 75g (5 tbsp) unsalted butter, cold, diced
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) ice water
  • ½ teaspoon distilled white vinegar
Apple and Blueberry Filling
  • 400g apples
  • 200g blackberries
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 15g butter
Directions
Pie Crust
  1. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
  2. Mix on low speed with the butter and shortening until the mixture look shaggy and the pieces of butter are pea sized. Smush any large chunks with your fingers.
  3. Mix the ice water and vinegar, then add to the flour/butter on low speed. Mix briefly with a few rotations, but do not let the dough come together.
  4. Scrape the sides and bottom of the mixer to remove any pockets of dry ingredients, then squeeze a small amount of dough in your hand – it should form a clump.
  5. If necessary add a little more water a few teaspoons at a time.
  6. Shape into two flat circles, wrap in plastic wrap, then refrigerate overnight.
Apple and Blueberry Filling
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F, grease pie moulds.
  2. Peel and chop the apples into ~1cm cubes (roughly chopped is fine).
  3. Stew in a pan with the sugar and cinnamon for a 3-4 mins, then add the blueberries.
  4. Stir to combine, then spoon into the pie cases.
  5. Cover with a lattice and bake for ~15 mins until golden if making mini pies, or ~50 mins if making a single, big pie.
