Instructions
Dough
  1. Combine flour and sugar and then rub the butter into it. Mix in the eggs and gradually add the milk if the mixture is still dry. You want a soft dough that isn’t sticky.
  2. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, divide into 2, cover and set aside.
Filling
  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Grease two shallow 15cm ovenproof bowls with butter.
  3. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  4. Roll each half of dough into a 5mm circle. Lay the pastry on the bowl, allowing the edges to drape over. Take half of the filling and roll it into a ball with your hands. Lay this onto the rolled pastry, bringing up the overhanging pastry and pinching it every 5 centimetres.
  5. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes, to until golden. Sprinkle with sugar before serving.
