{Recipe} Rhubarb Trat

My grandmother made to most yummy apple and rhubarb pies ever. I have tried and tried to get my pies to taste the same but i fail every time. (It could be the fact the s she was a smoker and i am not. Maybe that's what i'm missing. hehe!)

Any way this is mine go at it. I use twice the flour to fat. i use 11 oz of flour to 5.5 oz of fat. That makes enough pastry for 1 pie and a little bit left over for the small lady to make something. Just add sugar and water and your set.

First add the butter to the flour.

Then rub the butter and flour until it looks like bread crumbs.

Add two spoons of sugar and stir. Add the water a little at a time. Just enough water to bring it together.

When you have it brought together it should look like this. 

Wrap it in cling film and put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

My grandmother always put a few knobs of butter in the pie, (don't know why but what harm can it do.)

Cook for 30 to 40 minutes at 200C and serve it with custard and cream (hubs favorite)
