"It is passed on from my grandmother to my mother to me. Notice it has little sugar, but very much flour - they were farmers and had good access to flour, but not to the rationed sugar."Here it is:
- 100 g sugar (a little more than 1 dl, 1dl sugar = 0,85 hg)
- 200 g butter
- 300 g flour (6 dl of flour - be sure to sweep of the excess, "strukna mått")
- Fruit or berries
Fill crust with apples (or berrys, for example a mix of raspberry and blueberry), use remaining dough to make a top-crust. Bake in oven until smells tempting and the cover has a nice colour.
Elisabeth says she always adds sugar over the berries or apples, and then enjoys it with lots of custard-sauce. Well, I don't know about "lots of custard sauce" but custard powder wasn't rationed in Britain so if you could get it... I'll leave you to sort that out with your conscience!
