500 g Bilberries
125 g Caster sugar
2 lg Apples cooking
Shortcrust or puff pastry
Egg white, lightly beaten
Mix the bilberries and half the sugar. Core the apples and bake until
tender. Scrape out the pulp and sweeten with the remaining sugar and
mix with the bilberries.
Butter and line a pie plate with pastry. Put in the bilberry filling
and cover with pastry. Brush with egg white if using shortcrust
pastry. Sprinkle with a thin layer of sugar. If using puff pastry
glaze with an egg glaze.
Bake in a hot oven to set the pastry – gas 6 to 7, 200 ~ 220 Celsius
(400 – 425 F) – then lower the heat to moderate (gas 4, 180C, 350F)
to cook the fruit.
Serve with cream.
