Notes: Instead of making the pastry from scratch, you can use 1 x 400 g roll of readymade short-crust pastry, thawed and rolled out slightly thinner.
You can double the pastry and freeze half for up to 2 months to use when you need it. For easy filling and baking, freeze the dough already in a pie dish.
You can use light brown sugar instead of caster sugar for a slightly different texture.
