Adzuki Bean Sweet Pie
We've shared with you adzuki bean buns,
adzuki bean rice cake
and bread filled with adzuki bean paste;
you should now try a pie with sweet adzuki bean paste filling. Or, if you're not keen
on sweet pie, give the adzuki bean savoury pie a go.
All we did was merely making a little adjustment on the adzuki bean paste ingredients,
and combined it with the shortcrust pastry recipe.
- 60g salted butter
- 120g plain flour
- 1/2 teaspoon castor sugar
- Some cold water
- 100gram Adzuki Bean
- 3-4 pandan (screwpine) leaves
- 20gram brown sugar
- 30ml fresh milk
- 25gram fresh cream
- 1 tablespoon corn flour
- Prepare the pastry with the above scaled-down ingredients.
- Heat oven to 180°C. Divide the pastry dough into half, roll out each on to about 3mm thick and line into a 6-inch pie dish.
- Poke some tiny holes on the base of the pastry with a fork. Fill the pastry with a layer of baking beans and bake
for about 10 minutes. Remove beans and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
- Boil the adzuki bean with the pandan leaves till it is soft. Fish out the leaves and mash the adzuki beans with a masher.
- Mix the adzuki bean mash with the rest of the ingredients for filling, and cook the mixture till it is thick and pasty.
- Pour the filling into the dish, bake for 10-15 minutes. If filling is still runny then bake further for 5 minutes.
- Makes two 6-inch pies.
- Serve hot or chilled.
- Feel free to add in other ingredients to the filling, such as lotus seeds, sesame seeds and lily bulb.
- You can use a food processor for the filling instead of a masher, should you prefer a more refined texture.
- The amount of sugar can be reduced or increased depending on your preference.
- You can make one large pie instead of 2 small ones, but smaller ones are always easier to handle.
And if the first one is not up to your expectation you can still improve on the second.
- Make extra pastry if you wish to have a top crust over the pie.
