Humble yet dreamy fruit pie…. I wanted to show that crust some love, so crowned it faux lattice. Rustic crust filled juicy goodness of stone fruits compote

Ingredients –

  • Mixed set of cut fruits – apples, pears, plums
  • Left over Scarlett Poached plums syrup
  • Vanilla essence
  • orange zest
  • 1 tsp dry ginger powder

Directions for the fruit compote filling

  • Take a pan and add the cut fruits, pour the syrup, vanilla essence, orange zest and dry ginger powder. Gently squish them with a back of your laddle.
  • Put it on heat and gently bring to a bubble – or the syrup reduces
  • Take it off the heat… bring it to room temperature

For the short crust party dough ….  Basic Shortcrust Pastry Base

Direction for the pie

  • I used a 6 inches pie mold ( you’ll be left with some extra dough – you can either keep it for later or make another small pie)
  •  Roll the pie dough – place it in the mold
  • With some extra dough – roll out and make thin strips for the lattice
  • Give it an egg wash
  • Pre heat the oven @ 200 degrees
  • Blind bake the pie for 10-12 minutes and rest it for some time
  • Scoop in all of the fruits compote
  • Place the strips for dough carefully on the filled pie – end to end on one side and do the same over lapping the first set – end to end. This will create a faux lattice.
  • Give the lattice an egg wash
  • Sprinkle some sugar on the lattice
  • Place the pie in the oven – bake it at 180 degrees for about 30 minutes
  • Check for doneness – the pie should be golden brown and sugar sprinkled on top should be browned.
  • Remove from the oven and let it rest.
