We are enjoying a glut of apples at the moment - granny smiths, pink ladies and half eaten being the current order of the day. This afternoon some of all of the above will be going into a pie. Along with a little rhubarb which should help counteract the sweetness of the pink ladies. Earlier, when the sun was a little higher in the sky and the whole afternoon stretched out making pastry seemed like a good idea. Some time later I wasn't so sure but having the ingredients and no instant alternative persuaded me to pull it together. Flour, butter, sour cream together with the ever magical food processor and I had some sour cream pastry (only been meaning to try Maggie Beer's recipe for five years). Once rested, rolled, rested and cooked it was wonderfully light and flaky.
