This is meant to be free form pie, which is meant to be easier than using a pastry case. I found this really hard, but then again the pastry wasn't great to start with. The filling is meant to be apple but we had some rhubarb in our veg box and it needed eating. Neither of us are great fans, so I used the crumble recipe and added tons of ginger to cover the taste of rhubarb. But we were both quite pleased, I wouldn't say I'm a complete convert but I don't despise it as much as I used to. Think I'll stick to a pastry case too, this pie definitely wouldn't win any pretty prizes!
