Park Pies Recipes

Ingredients :


1 cup chopped pitted dates

2 tbsp water

2 tbsp dark brown sugar

juice of 1 lemon

grated rind of 2 lemons

Pastry Crust

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup rolled oats

3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp dark brown sugar

12 tbsp (1 1/2 sticks) salted butter, melted

juice of 1 lemon

Method :

Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease 16 regular size muffin pans. To make the filling, put into a small saucepan the dates, water, sugar, lemon juice, and rind. Bring to a boil and simmer gently, uncovered, until thick and smooth but not dry. Stir occasionally. Remove from the heat and cool. To make the pastry crust, mix together the flour, baking soda, oats, and sugar. Add the melted butter and lemon juice. Blend together using a fork or floured hands. Roll the dough out about 1/4 inch thick on a floured board, and divide it into three portions. Cut two thirds of the dough into sixteen 3 inch circles and pat them into the base and sides of the pans; cut the remaining dough into sixteen 1 1/2 inch circles.

Put 1-2 teaspoonfuls of the date mixture into the pastry shells and set the 1 1/2 inch circles of dough on top, pressing the edges together. Bake for 35 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven, cool in the tins, and then lift out onto wire rack. The name of these little pies reflects the tea room's location across from the greenery of Clapham Common.
