A few years ago I attended a Portland pie event (Pie Palooza) with a few F52ers, this is the pie I shared and called a "Pie-a-dise," it is a riff on my Food52 Himalayan Blackberry Pie.

Note: in case you might wonder, other 52ers attending this annual pie event were hardlikearmour, vvvanessa and her sister vrunka, who was a co-host of the event.

  • Prep time 1 hour
  • Cook time 1 hour
  • 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
  • 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
In This Recipe
  1. CRUST - prepare the all butter crust (below), your favorite recipe or a pre-rolled
  2. 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. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Dot the berries with unsalted butter.
  6. Cover with the top pie crust. Crimp the edges. Brush with a milk/cream mixture. Poke air vents throughout.
  7. Cook for 50 to 60 minutes, until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbling.
