This is not an easy pie to cut into slices. But to my way of thinking, that makes this pie a standout. Cut into it, and the starfruit slices don't exactly cooperate with the knife. The starfruit tumbles out like stars falling out of the sky. You'll eat it starfruit slice by starfruit slice with a little piecrust on the fork. A nice way to eat great pie.
- 5 Florida starfruit
- 3 tbs sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tsp flour
- Non-fat cooking spray
- 2 prepared piecrusts
- 1 egg
- optional equipment
- Opstar-shaped cookie cutter
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Slice the starfruit into 1/8-inch star-shaped pieces. See a suggested way for doing this.
In a medium bowl, combine the starfruit slices, sugar, cinnamon and flour. Toss to coat. Set aside.
Spray a pie pan with cooking spray. Place one crust in the bottom of the pan, and press to conform to the pan's sides. Place the starfruit mixture in the pie pan. Level the starfruit mixture.
On a floured surface, roll out the other piecrust. Using star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a star shape.
Roll the pastry over the pie pan. Cut off any crust extending over the sides of the pan. Crimp the pie's edges.
In a small bowl, beat an egg. Brush it onto the piecrust.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes. If the crust or parts of the crust turn brown sooner than anticipated, place a sheet of foil on the brown portion.
Cool before serving.
