Vegan Sweet Shortcrust Pastry Recipe
Sift the flour and icing sugar into a large bowl and add the soya margarine.
Use your fingertips to rub the fat into the flour until you have a mixture that resembles coarse breadcrumbs with no large lumps of margarine remaining. Try to work quickly so that it doesn't become greasy.
Bring the mixture together to form a dough, adding extra flour if the mixture is too wet, or some water if too dry, a teaspoon at a time.
Wrap the dough in cling-film and chill for 10-15 minutes before using.
See? simple and so tasty!
I remove the stones from the cherries, sprinkle sugar over them & then pop them in a pan on the hob, medium heat & wait till he cherries have softened & the sugar has melted creating a lovely sweet syrup. This is your pie filling..lovely :)
Whack it in the oven at around 150-180degrees & bake for 25-30mins then hey presto - a delicious cherry pie baked with your own loving hands.
* serving suggestion : have it Twin Peaks style & enjoy a slice of pie with a nice hot cup of coffee.
