Pear Pie

Souce Link/Recipe - Click here

Here the pastry was made without an egg, just Plain flour, cold water, cold butter.

1 + 1/4 Plain flour
120g butter
1/2 tsp.  Salt
Cold water (till form a dough)
Sugar to sprinkle on top
Milk to brush.

Mixed spices : cinnamon, cloves, cardamon, coriander (perhaps)

Cut pears in desired size, toss in vinegar and sugar, spices and cornflour.
(Cornflour ensures a thick syrup rather than fruit swimming watery liquid)

Dice butter into small pieces.  Add salt.
Add the cold water tablespoon at a time till form a stiff dough. Chill in fridge.
Roll out and place top of fruit.
Brush with milk and sprinkle sugar

For sweet, add lemon zest, for savoury dried herbs ie oregano, thyme etc., adds flavour and a pretty speckled effect.
