Shortbread dough pies are very popular during summer-autumn when we have access to lots of fresh berries and fruits. On my website you can find such pies with apples and cherries, galettes with plums, apricots, strawberry and rhubarb.
All they are extremely fragrant and delicious. Add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and enjoy yourself.
In my blog you will find master classes that will be interesting for both beginners and professionals.
I am a practicing confectioner and I will teach you how to make delicious and exquisite confections at home.
Mix flour with sugar and oil, rub it all until you get crumbs.
Gradually pour in a very cold water, preferably from the freezer, and knead an elastic dough. More water may be needed.
Divide the dough into two parts, a larger and a smaller one. Wrap in food film and leave to rest in the fridge.
Add sugar mixed with cornstarch to the cherries. Stir well. You can optionally add some nutmeg.
Line a baking mold 22-24 cm in diameter with baking parchment.
First, roll out most of the dough, sprinkle the table with flour.
Put a layer of dough in a mold, and put the filling on it.
Roll out a smaller part of the dough. You can cover the filling and pinch the edges, and make an hole in the center so that steam evaporates. And you can cut the dough into strips and decorate the top with a grid.
Grease with yolk and milk, sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 40-50 minutes at 180°C.
