Peach and Apricot Pie


                                                                                                                                     Photo credit: G. Drakopoulos - Food Styling: T. Webb

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Combine the flour and baking flour in a bowl and set aside.
  • Grease a shallow 26 cm pie dish.
  • Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer or a food processor, until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time while beating continuously.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat for a couple more seconds to combine.
  • When a soft, elastic dough forms, remove and divide in half. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm. This will help the dough roll out easier.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the fruit.
  • Add them to a bowl with a generous amount of water and some lemon juice so that they don’t turn brown.
  • Place a large pan over high heat. Allow it to get very hot.
  • Strain the fruit very well and toss with the icing sugar.
  • Add the butter, a little at a time. Add the fruit in small batches and sauté until golden and have softened a little (not completely).
  • Set aside to cool completely.
  • When the dough has sufficiently chilled, roll it out with a rolling pin in between 2 sheets of parchment paper. The first ball of dough should be rolled out into a large enough sheet to cover the base and sides of the pie dish.
  • Lay it gently in to the pie dish and spread the filling on top.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon, clove powder and pepper.
  • There should be some juice leftover in the bowl with the fruit and icing sugar.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the juice on the dough that is along the rim of the pie dish.
  • Cover with the second piece of dough. Using your fingers, press the dough down gently along the rim, to seal.
  • With a sharp tipped knife, cut 2-4 vents (1cm) in the dough in order to let the steam escape.
  • Brush some milk over the pie with a pastry brush. Sprinkle with some sugar (optional).
  • Bake for 40 minutes until the dough turns golden.
  • Let the pie cool almost completely before slicing.


Dust with some icing sugar and cinnamon and serve with a scoop of ice cream!!!
