·         1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

·         1½ tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe

1.    Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Using 2 sheets of the pastry, line a 35cm x 11cm (base measurement) fluted tart pan with removable base; trim excess. Chill for 10 minutes.

2.    Line pastry with baking paper. Cover the base with dried beans, rice or pie weights. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights and paper. Bake for a further 10 minutes or until just coloured.

3.    Meanwhile, combine cherries, berries, zest, juice, spice, caster sugar and cornflour in a medium bowl.

4.    Spoon cherry mixture into pastry. Cut remaining pastry sheet in half. Join short sides by pressing edges together. Using a rolling pin, roll out pastry until large enough to cover pie. Using a 1.5cm-round cookie cutter, randomly cut small discs from pastry to form a polka-dot effect. Cover the pie with pastry. Trim edges. Brush pastry with a little egg. Sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake for 40 minutes or until pastry is golden and crisp. Stand for 15 minutes. Serve the pie with custard.
