  • 01
  • For pastry, process flour, butter, sugar and a pinch of salt in a food processor until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add yolks and 2 tbsp iced water and pulse until mixture just comes together. Form pastry into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Roll out two thirds of the pastry on a floured surface to 5mm thick and use to line an 18cm ceramic pie dish. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 190C. Place raspberries into pastry-lined dish and scatter with caster sugar. Roll out remaining pastry to a circle large enough to cover pie, top pie, pressing edges to seal. Pierce a 1cm hole in the centre, brush top with eggwhite and scatter with raw sugar.
