Pie-A-Dise

By • August 7, 2011 • 37 Comments



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
  1. 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.

FILLING INGREDIENTS

  • 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
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Dot the berries with unsalted butter.
  5. Cover with the top pie crust. Crimp the edges. Brush with a milk/cream mixture. Poke air vents throughout.
  6. Cook for 50 to 60 minutes, until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbling.

You are the pie master! Your crust is all I make, well with flavor tweaks here and there but you got me over my Fear Of Pie Crust last year with your himalayan blackberry pie. Pie-A-Palooza sounds fun!

Wow, now that you mentioned it, I remember you talking about the crust last year, and your comment is a great way to start off the week, thanks, aargersi! My pie adventure was fun, I had never seen SO many pies all in one place...

Thanks, SKK, I hope you will try it sometime. And, if you aren't into crust making (and sometimes I am not) I find the frozen crust at Trader Joe's nice to work with and tasty too!

I buy boatloads of blackberries every summer and freeze them, they are my favorite berry. I will definitely give this a try my frozen blackberries are crying out to be baked into a pie.

Yum! My ALL blackberry pie is made exactly the same :)

I can attest to the deliciousness of this pie. The tartness of the raspberries beautifully complements the sweetness of the blackberries!
