Vegan - Strawberry and Rhubarb Crumb Pie
One single pastry crust
1 ½ cups plain flour
2 tablespoons sugar (steivia)
½ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold non hydrogenated shortening or cold coconut oil
4 tablespoons ice-water
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
sift flour, salt and sugar. Cut in the shortening (using a fork, pastry cutter, fingers, food processor)
to form a crumbly dough
Stir together the ice water and vinegar and add gradually to the flour, mix together until the dough just comes together and forms a ball. Wrap in plastic or grease proof paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Roll dough between two pieces of grease proof paper. Roll the dough to make a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Occasionally rotate the dough as you roll, to help even distribution.
Transfer the dough to the pie plate, gently remove the top grease proof paper and slide your hand underneath the centre of the paper and quickly flip into the pie plate and remove the remaining paper. Press the dough down into the pie dish. Trim off any over hanging dough or crimp edges as desired.
