Method :
  • For the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Add the fat and rub in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in enough water to bind. Form into a ball, roll out, and use to line a 23cm dish, leaving a 1 cm overhang. Fold this under for double thickness. Flute the edge, thin chill.
  • Preheat oven to 230oC/450oF/Gas 8. Peel, core and slice the fruit. Combine in a bowl with one-third of the sugar, the corn flour, salt, lemon rind and juice, and raisins.
  • For the crumble topping, combine the remaining sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter in a bowl. Rub in until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Spoon the filling into the pastry case. Sprinkle the crumbs over the top.
  • Bake on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4. Cover the pie loosely with foil and bake until browned, 35 - 40 minutes more.
