This heavenly Whole Wheat Fresh Fruits Pie just melts in your mouth, giving way to a burst of fruity flavours! The secret to getting a pie right is in preparing the dough properly. Here we tell you how to go about it, right from rubbing the ingredients together to making the dough with milk.

Using whole wheat flour to make the pie gives it a nice, rustic flavour and amazing texture. The topping lives up to the quality of the pie base, featuring a delightful combination of fresh fruits sandwiched between two layers of jam.

While some pies are best had warm, this particular fresh fruit pie tastes best after refrigeration as the chill temperature renews the juicy texture of the fruits.
