Berry Pie

Made a pie on pi day finally. Easy and delicious. Only had a handful of blueberries so subbed more frozen strawberries and raspberries. Not too sweet.
  • 2 c flour
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2/3 c butter
  • 6-8 T water
  • 2 c raspberries
  • 1 c sliced strawberries
  • 1.5 c blueberries
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/4 cornstarch
  • cinnamon
  1. If using frozen berries, measure berries and let sit in large bowl.
  2. Combine flour and salt in food processor. Briefly blend in butter. Add cold water and blitz until powdery but not lumpy. Smoosh with hands, separate in half, wrap pieces in saran wrap and chill for at least 30 min.
  3. Combine sugar and cornstarch. Set aside ~1 T. Sprinkle remaining over [drained] berries. Sprinkle in cinnamon. Mix to combine. Let sit 15 minutes.
  4. Roll one dough piece to fit pie pan. Return to fridge.
  5. Preheat oven to 375F. Place lined baking tray on lower shelf to catch drippings.
  6. To finish, sprinkle 1 T sugar mixture on bottom pie crust. Pour in berries and spread evenly. Roll out second dough piece. Layer on top and seal edges.
  7. Cut out vents. Cover edges with foil. Bake for 25 min [or 40 min if using frozen fruit].
  8. Remove foil and bake an additional 30-40 min until filling is bubbling and crust is golden.


Use blackberries.
Lemon juice.
Cut out shapes from top crust or do lattice.
