Author Notes: Love the pies at the fair and my addition would be berry, of course! A couple weeks ago I attended a pie event with online friends and even a few F52ers! This is the pie I brought…it was a Raspberry-Blackberry Pie-a-dise! A tweaked version of my blackberry pie. Note: just in case you are wondering - other F52ers attending were hardlikearmour, vvvanessa and her sister vrunka, who was a co-host of the event. - lapadia
Makes 1 10-inch pie
CRUST - prepare the all butter crust (below), your favorite recipe or a pre-rolled
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
- 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8-10 tablespoons ice water
- Put the butter, flour and salt in the food processor, pulse lightly until the mixture resembles wet looking particles (some recipes say pea sized). Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, pulsing a couple times after each tablespoon. Keep adding water until the dough just starts to gather into larger clumps. Split the dough in half and place each into a re-sealable plastic bag, pat each into a disk. Let the dough sit in the refrigerator 30 minutes.
- 2 cups raspberries
- 2 cups blackberries
- 3/4 cup blackberry honey
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 3 tablespoons instant tapioca
- Optional - up to 1/4 cup super fine sugar, to your taste, if needed
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Wash and the drain berries. Add the sugar, honey, lime juice and tapioca; taste test before adding any additional superfine sugar. Stir and let sit 15 minutes so that the little tapioca balls have time to soften.
- Place the bottom crust in a 10 inch pie plate. Add the berries with a slotted spoon, this will leave some juice, that’s ok, the pie will be juicy enough.
- Dot the berries with unsalted butter.
- Cover with the top pie crust. Crimp the edges. Brush with a milk/cream mixture. Poke air vents throughout.
- Cook for 50 to 60 minutes, until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbling.
