My beloveds Christmas present to me. Her name is Bambi (as he joked about getting me a pet deer for Christmas). She is the perfect size car for me and Toto and we have been enjoying lots of trips to the park.

I have been doing a fair bit of baking lately and this pie is my absolute favourite thing to bake.

Berry Pie Recipe:
2 cups plain flour
2 egg yolks
150 grams butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 cups berries (or whatever fruit you prefer)
brown sugar
Sift flour. Cut in butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in white sugar. Add egg yolks and water. Mix to a stiff dough.Roll out into 2 flat pieces (one for the base, the other for the top). Place base in greased pie dish. Add fruit. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon to sweeten fruit. Place top on pie. Trim edges and press fork around rim to tidy. Use fork to make holes in top to bake properly. Bake at 180 for approx 20-30mins in middle of oven. Cool and enjoy!!
