  • 2 cups plain (all purpose) flour
  • 3 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 150 g unsalted butter, cold
  • 4 tablespoons iced water


  • 400 g strawberries, sliced (I did a mixture of quartered and sliced horizontally)
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink peppercorns, crushed (optional)
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, picked
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped or 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Raw sugar, for scattering
  • Icing sugar and vanilla ice cream, to serve
  • Extra fresh thyme, to serve


  1. To make the pastry, place flour, caster sugar and butter in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. With the motor running, add the iced water and process until the mixture starts to form a dough. Knead lightly on a floured work surface until dough just holds together. Flatten into a disc and wrap plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

  2. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  3. In a large bowl, place the sliced strawberries, cornflour, vanilla, thyme, pepper (if usinand honey and stir to combine.
  4. Roll out the pastry to 3mm thick round shape. Spoon the strawberries into an even layer, leaving around 8cm border around the outside of all sides. Fold in the sides of the pastry, brush with egg and scatter raw sugar. Bake for 20-30 minutes until pastry is golden and strawberries are bubbling.

  5. Serve in thick slices dusted with icing sugar, extra thyme leaves and big scoops of vanilla ice cream.
