I got this excellent recipe from my German neighbour with a huge jar of fresh red currant, so I felt like I was forced to do something with it. Here is the result:
Red currant pie
Ingredients: 2 egg yolks, 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest, 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 cup butter, softened
2 egg whites, 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 teaspoons cornstarch, 2 1/4 cups red currants
In a medium bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. Mix in butter, sugar, egg yolks and lemon zest until mixture forms dough. Let rest in cool place for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Roll out dough and put into a spring form pan. Bake in oven for 35 minutes, or until golden yellow.
To make the filling: In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually stir in sugar and cornstarch; beat for 5 minutes. Fold currants into mixture and pour into pie crust. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until top is lightly browned.
