  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • cup shortening

  • 1 tablespoon cold water


  1. Combine sugar, cornstarch, and five-spice powder. Stir in fruit and marmalade. Toss until coated. If using frozen fruit, let mixture stand 45 minutes or until fruit is partially thawed but still icy. If using all fresh fruit, let stand while preparing pastry. Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

  2. Ease 1 pastry round into a 9x2-inch heart-shape baking pan or dish or 9-inch pie plate; do not stretch pastry. Add fruit mixture to pastry-lined pan. Trim bottom pastry to edge of pan. Roll out second ball of dough; cut slits in pastry and place pastry on filling. Trim 1/2 inch beyond edge of pan. Fold top pastry under bottom pastry; crimp edge. Brush with milk. If desired, cut small hearts out of pastry scraps; place on pie. Brush cutouts with milk. If desired, sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake 60 to 70 minutes or until filling is bubbly and pastry is golden. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cool. Makes 8 servings.
