My boy turned 4 years old the other day. He was so excited and happy, and he makes me so proud every day. For his birthday, he asked for a Harry Potter cake, which felt… like a challenge. He has learnt about HP from his older brother and sister. He loves to play with his wand and shouts “Expelliarmus!” and pretends that he’s Harry or Hagrid, and his little brother is Hermione. They’re just tooooo cute! Anyway, we made a compromise and I made him a blueberry pie with a lightning bolt. Apparently, that was good enough.
125 g vegan butter
3 dl plain flour
1-2 tbsp cold water
Combine the ingredients in a food processor until you have a dough. Flatten it with a rolling pin and transfer it to a pie dish. Take a piece aside for the decoration. Carefully prick the crust with a fork, and bake in 225 C for 15 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the filling.
400 g frozen blueberries (Nordic/wild, the small type)
1 dl caster sugar
1,5 tbsp corn starch
1 dl almond paste (like marzipan, but less sweet)
Put the berries in a bowl and add sugar and corn starch. Carefully mix until all berries are covered. Grate the almond paste and fold in with the blueberries. When the pie crust is baked, fill with blueberry mix. Use the piece of dough to make the lightning (or other – more advanced? – decoration). Bake in the oven at 225 C for 25-30 minutes. Leave to cool before serving with Oatly’s vanilla whipped cream.
