How to make a beautiful sweet cake

Divide pastry into two unequal parts. Great will be the basis for the pie, and the smaller you can make the bumpers and the grille. On floured Board roll out the dough into the reservoir. Place it on a baking sheet, greased. Grease the cake with jam - it should be fairly thick. Do not skimp on the filling. To cake turned out delicious, it is important to observe a proper proportion between dough and jam.
To jam is not leaking out on a baking sheet, sprinkle a layer of dough with potato starch and only after that spread the stuffing.

A smaller part of the dough roll out and cut with a knife into narrow strips. You can make them curly if you use the special round knife to create the scallops. Lay the strips on the cake in the form of the grille and bumpers. Whisk the egg and brush over the bars - this will give the cake an appetizing appearance.
If you don't have pinking knife, make strips on the frequent parallel incisions with the help of kitchen scissors.

Leave the cake for proofing for 15-20 minutes. Then place it in the oven, preheated to 180oC. Bake the product until Golden brown. If the cake flushed, but the bottom is still moist, move the pan to the lower level of the oven.

The finished product is neatly put on a wooden Board and cover with a linen towel. Hot pastry needs to rest for half an hour. Then cut the blueberry pie into small square or diamond shaped pieces and serve with tea.

So the pie became more tender after baking and cooling it is possible to grease with sour cream, whipped with sugar. This "napkin" makes cakes more tender, keeps the cake soft and fresh.
