Triple Berry Pie
Why do I always want Pie in the summer? When baking is a great way to heat your house, and when you really want your air conditioner to work it's hardest.
For the Crust:
10.5 oz of All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Kosher Salt
4 oz Chilled Butter
2 oz Shortening
8 to 10 Tbsp Buttermilk
To make the crust, first cut together the fat and the flour. I like to do this in a food processor, gently pulsing on and off until the mixture resembles wet sand. Make sure to chill your butter well beforehand.
After the butter, shortening, salt, and flour have been cut together, slowly add buttermilk to bind the dough. I like to add the buttermilk one tablespoon at a time until the dough loosely comes together when pressed in the palm of my hand.
Turn the dough out on to a tabletop and press into 2 discs. Wrap in plastic and place them in the fridge while you work on your filling. Also at this time you may want to preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
For the Filling:
30 oz of berries
3.5 oz to 4.5 oz of sugar
2 oz of all-purpose flour
Kosher salt to taste
The juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Not much to say here except to mix all of the above ingredients together and give them a good mixing. Don't worry if the berries break down as you stir.
Grease a pie dish with oil or butter and place in your pie crust. Add your filling and the top crust. Weave a nice lattice top to the pie if you're feeling up to it! Top with an egg wash and a bit of sugar.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes, then check on it every 10 minutes until it's done (mine had to go for a full hour in this video, but yours may be different!) Make sure you put a sheet pan underneath the pie! Odds are you're going to get some spillage.
And make sure you let this cool for a full hour before eating!
