  • Beat the flour, sugar and butter in a food processor, until the butter dissolves completely. Lower the speed and add 1 egg. The flour should change color and texture. It should become yellowish in color and resemble coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Add the chilled water slowly, until the dough comes together and becomes soft enough to work with.
  • Work in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour so it can rest. It would be best if you flatten dough as much as possible before wrapping. It will make it much easier to roll out.
  • Grease and flour a 28 cm tart pan, round or rectangular is fine. Set aside.
  • Lay out 2 large pieces of parchment paper. Place dough between them. Use the rolling pin to roll out the dough between the 2 sheets of parchment. If it does not roll out easily, let the dough sit at room temperature for 5 minutes so it can soften.
  • Preheat oven to 190* C (374* F) Fan.
  • In a large bowl, toss the forest fruit with sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and salt. Set aside until needed.
  • Spread the dough in the tart pan and press onto bottom and sides. Add the filling.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes, until golden.
  • While the pie is cooking, prepare the glaze by simply mixing together the caster sugar with the juices the fruit released while thawing.
  • Decorate the top of the pie nicely with the glaze.
