And I heart Kristin Chenoweth as Olive Snook (best name ever) it's got me totally hooked on this 'they might be giants' cover of 'Birdhouse in your soul' it's so cheery!

Anyhoo, all the pie making and eating made me want pie, so pies I did make.
I just stewed some apples and blackberries I'd picked on a bike ride (free food!) for the filling
and used this basic Bero pastry recipe:
|225 g (8 oz)||Be-Ro Plain Flour|
|50 g (2 oz)||lard|
|50 g (2 oz)||margarine|
|cold water to mix, about 30 ml (approx. 2 tbsp.)|
|25 g (1 oz)||caster sugar if sweet pastry is required.|
