• 350 grams (12.3 ounces) flour
  • 200 grams (7.1 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 180 grams (6.3 ounces) sugar
  • 10 grams (0.35 ounces) baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 10 grams (0.35 ounces) vanilla sugar


  • 200 grams (7.1 ounces) berry puree
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) starch
  • 20 grams (0.7 ounces) sugar
  • 200 grams (7.1 ounces) fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) starch
  • 1 tablespoon (8 grams) powdered sugar


  • Mixing Bowls

    Make sure to use a variety of sizes; you'll need them for mixing different ingredients.

  • Parchment Paper

    Lining your baking dish with parchment paper will prevent sticking and make cleanup a breeze.

  • Baking Dish

    Opt for a sturdy, oven-safe dish for even baking. Ceramic or glass dishes work well.

  • Grater

    A coarse grater will make it easier to grate the frozen dough—perfect for creating that textured topping.

  • Measuring Cups and Spoons

    Accuracy is key in baking. Make sure your measurements are spot on.


Step 1

Combine flour, salt, and baking powder. Make sure all dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

Step 2

Dice butter and rub into the flour mixture. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to blend until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Add the egg and knead to form the dough. Do not over-knead to avoid tough dough.

Step 4

Set aside a portion of the dough (about a third or fourth) in a plastic bag and place it in the freezer. Freezing will make it easier to grate later.

Step 5

Press the remaining dough into a parchment-lined baking dish. Even out the dough using your hands or a flat-bottomed glass.

Step 6

Spread the berry puree over the dough, add raspberry berries, powdered sugar, and starch on top. Distribute the berries evenly.

Step 7

Grate the frozen dough over the berry layer using a coarse grater. Ensure an even distribution of the grated dough for a consistent texture.

Step 8

Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (392°F) for about an hour. Check for a golden-brown color on top as an indication it's done.

Step 9

Once cooled, cut into squares or rectangles. Use a sharp knife to get clean cuts.

Step 10

You can dust with powdered sugar for an extra touch. This adds a nice visual appeal and a hint of sweetness.

Step 11

Enjoy this scrumptious pie that's perfect for any occasion and easy to take along as a snack!

  • What should I do if my dough is too sticky?

    If your dough is too sticky, try adding a little more flour, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the right consistency. Remember, the dough should be soft but not stick to your hands.

  • Can I use frozen berries instead of fresh ones?

    Yes, frozen berries can be used! Just make sure to thaw and drain them well to avoid excess moisture, which can affect the texture of your pastry.

  • How do I know when my pastry is baked through?

    The pastry should be golden brown on top and have a nice, firm texture. If you're unsure, you can insert a toothpick; if it comes out clean, your pastry is ready!

  • Can I prepare the dough in advance?

    Absolutely! You can prepare the dough and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days. Just make sure to bring it to room temperature before using.

  • How can I achieve a flakier crust?

    Ensure your butter is cold and handle the dough as little as possible to keep the butter from melting before baking. This will help create those lovely flaky layers.

  • Any tips for a stronger berry flavor?

    You could enhance the berry flavor by adding a teaspoon of berry extract or zesting a lemon into the berry mixture. This will give your pastry a more robust and refreshing taste.
