Hihihihii…. We had such a joy to prepare this sweet grape pie. Trixilie giggled the whole time and because of her I did it too 🙂
This Sheep Pie looks so cute and is very easy to prepare. Especially for Easter. Prepare it the day before and put in the fridge. Remove the pie out of the fridge before eating and create the sheep look (step 6).
Preparation time: approx. 20 minutes
Rest time dough: 1-2 hours
Bake time: 30 minutes
Ingredients For four people:
6 tbsp. of oil
6 tbsp. of water
1 pinch of salt
60g of sugar
300g of berry mix
2 tbsp. of cornstarch
250ml of cherry juice (or apple juice, but then the pie is not so red)
1 pinch of salt
200g dark grapes
- Dough: Place all ingredients into a bowl and knead it into a firm dough. Form a dough ball, leave it in the bowl, place a towel over the bowl and place the bowl for 1-2 hours into the fridge.
- Take the dough out of the fridge and leave it for 15 minutes. Take 50g of the dough and put it aside. Then roll the rest of the dough and place it in a pastry dish / pie dish. (make sure that the pastry hangs a bit over. We forgot it and the pastry shrunk during baking –> see picture above)
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas mark 4.
- Place the berry mix into a blender. Add cherry juice, cornstarch and salt into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour the berry smoothie into the dough form. Roll out the remaining pastry. Cut the dough into strips. Arrange half the strips at 2cm intervals across the top of the pie. Repeat crosswise with the remaining strips. Place the pastry dish / pie dish to the oven (middle rack) and bake for 30 minutes.
- Remove the pie out of the oven and leave to cool down for 10 minutes.
- Peel the kiwi. Cut the kiwi lengthwise and put one half on the pie. Cut a bit of the other kiwi half and place two ears beside the sheep head. Halve the grapes and place them on the pie (around the sheep head). Use a bit of the grapes as two sheep eyes.
We wish you lots of fun with this recipe.
Tomorrow we will show you a delicious beetroot cherry muffins.
