No need for tins, dishes and all the washing up that goes with them for this recipe! This pie stands alone. The parts hidden under the folded pastry around the edge are nicely stewed and the middle is crusty. Add to this a spiced caramel sauce (from American chef Bobbly Flay) and you have a dessert that is as easy as it is delicious.

Ingredients

For the pastry:

  • 150 g ( oz) lightly salted butter, very cold
  • 250 g (

Method

MAKE THE PASTRY. Work the diced butter, flour and demerara sugar together in a mixing bowl with an electric beater until the mixture is sandy. Add the beaten egg, mix again, then shape the dough into a ball with your hands. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Take it out 15 minutes before you use it.

MEANWHILE, MAKE THE SAUCE. Pla
