here’s something yummy for you to try out this weekend.
I googled a recipe and was happy to find one from all recipes that didn’t require several ingredients. Simplicity is key in this pie recipe.
Makes One 9″ pie
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled and diced
1/4 cup ice water
4 cups fresh blackberries
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons milk
Prep Time: 30 minutes (plus 4hrs – overnight chill time)
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Step #1: Combine flour and salt then cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. One tablespoon at a time stir in the water until it forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Step #2: After refrigeration let dough stand 10min to thaw. Roll it out to fit a 9 inch pie plate with just as much extra left over for the top crust. Place crust in pie plate and press dough evenly into the bottom and sides.
Step #3: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Step #4: Combine 3 1/2 cups berries with 1/2C sugar and the flour. Spoon the mixture into your unbaked pie shell. Spread the remaining 1/2 cup berries on top of the sweetened berries.
Step #5:To get a lattice top as I made (for the first time!) I found these instructions incredibly helpful.
Step #6: Brush the top with milk and sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Step #7: Bake for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
I don’t know about you but baking a pie reminds me how close autumn is, and that gets me a little excited.
