|For our 4th anniversary, I gave C a year of pies. Each month I baked a different fruit pie. I never did any combination of fruits, but I did learn a lot more about pie baking. C's favorite over the year was the blueberry pie, my favorite was the Batali Family Blackberry Pie. We had an excess of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries that were destined to be frozen until C mentioned bringing a pie into work. This pie is a good marriage of our two favorites. The filling was my own invention, but the crust is from Martha Stewart. It was 80 degrees and humid when I made it, so the crust was not so fun to roll out.|
2 ½ cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter, cut into ½” pieces
3 to 4 tablespoons ice water
1 ½ cups blueberries
1 ½ cups blackberries
1 ½ cups strawberries, quartered or halved, depending on size
½ cup sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
juice of half a lemon
In a food processor, process flour, sugar and salt until combined. Add the butter and process for 10 seconds. Add the water through the feed tube in a slow stream. Process until the mixture begins to come together. Place the dough in a large Ziploc bag and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, sugar, corn starch and lemon juice. Toss gently to combine. Let sit for 15 minutes.
Roll out the dough to fit a 9” pie pan, reserving enough dough to create the lattice top. Once the dough is lining the pie dish, pour the berry mixture over top. Roll the remaing dough into 9” strips that are ½” wide. Weave the dough on the top of the pie. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
