Quandong & Rhubarb Pie for Christmas

Category

Quick and Easy to make, delicious to eat Rhubarb is an age-old favourite in everyones garden, hopefully it will be again, it's a delicious addition to any cooking and I've added it with an Australian bushfood, Quandongs, to create a really unique and tasty pie.

 1 cup of chopped rhubarb
 1 cup of dried quandongs
 1/2 cup of sugar
 1 cup water
 2 teaspoons of vanilla

1

Heat oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5

2

Soak quandongs in cold water for approx 1 hour, drain

3

Put Quandongs and Rhubarb into a saucepan

4

Add 1 cup of water

5

Add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla

6

Bring to boil, lower heat and cook until rhubarb is tender and falls apart. The quandongs still should be in one piece

7

Leave to cool in refrigerator and quandongs will soak up extra fluid

8

Make your favourite shortcrust pastry, I used gluten fre flour as I had a friend who is wheat intolerant

9

Put quandong and rhubarb mix into an oven proof dish

10

Top with a thin layer of pastry

11

Using a cutter cut out star shapes

12

Paint the top of the pastry with egg wash, top with stars and paint with egg wash again

13

Cook in oven until pastry is cooked and golden brown

14

Allow to cook and just before serving lightly sprinkle with icing sugar. Serve with yoghurt, ice-cream or cream
