Blackberry pie recipe (pita od kupina)
- Cuisine: Croatian
- Serves 6
Ingredients200g (1⅓ cups) plain flour
¾ tsp baking powder
185g cold unsalted butter, chopped
150g (1 cup) caster sugar
2 eggs, separated
600g fresh or frozen, thawed blackberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon zest
Icing sugar, to serve
PreparationProcess flour, baking powder, butter and 75g caster sugar in a food processor until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 2 egg yolks and process until mixture forms a ball; dough will be soft. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface.
Reserve one-third of the dough; shape into a disc, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using damp hands, press remaining dough into the base and sides of a greased and lined 20cm pie dish. Place pie shell in the refrigerator to chill.
Preheat oven to 180°C. To make filling, using an electric mixer, whisk egg whites to soft peaks, then gradually add remaining 75g sugar and whisk until thick and glossy. Fold in blackberries, vanilla and lemon zest until combined. Spoon into pastry shell and, using a small knife, slice off small pieces of reserved dough and place over filling to cover.
Bake for 50 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Serve warm or cold dusted with icing sugar.

Toasting whole spices in a dry pan can help to bring out the essential oils and the flavour in the spice, however be careful to taste as you add the spice to your dish as the flavour will have changed and you may need less. Toasting pre-ground spices is a little trickier and it can ruin the flavour of the spice altogether.
Fish herb (Diep Ca & Cang Cua) is considered by some as an acquired taste as it has a definite fishy smell and flavour. Often used in soups.
