Ingredients

CRUST:
2 ¼ CUPS ALL – PURPOSE FLOUR
1 CUP CAKE FLOUR
1 ½ TSP GRATED LEMON PEEL
½ TSP SALT
¼ TSP BAKING POWDER
14 TABLESPOONS (1 ¾ STICKS) CHILLED UNSALTED BUTTER, CUT INTO ½ INCH CUBES
6 TABLESPOONS (ABOUT) ICE WATER
1 TABLESPOON APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

FILLING:
NONSTICK VEGETABLE OIL SPRAY
¾ CUP SUGAR
¼ CUP CORNSTARCH
3 CUPS FRESH RASPBERRIES
3 CUPS FRESH BLACKBERRIES (CAN'T BEAT THE NC FARMERS MARKET FOR THE BERRIES!)


1-2 TBSP SALTED BUTTER, SLICED INTO THIN SLIVERS


OPTIONAL FOR PIE CRUST TOP: WHIPPED EGG WHITE AND CREAM (EQUAL PARTS, ABOUT 1 TBSP EACH), ADDITIONAL SUGAR


FOR CRUST:


COMBINE FIRST 5 INGREDIENTS IN PROCESSOR AND BLEND FOR ~5 SECONDS.


ADD BUTTER AND CONTINUE BLENDING, USING ON/OFF TURNS, UNTIL MIXTURE RESEMBLES COARSE MEAL.


ADD 5 TABLESPOONS WATER AND THE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. USING ON/OFF TURNS, BLEND UNTIL MOIST CLUMPS FORM, ADDING MORE WATER IF DOUGH IS DRY.


GATHER DOUGH INTO BALL; DIVIDE IN HALF. SHAPE EACH HALF INTO DISK. WRAP IN PLASTIC AND CHILL AT LEAST 1 HOUR AND UP TO 1 DAY.


FOR FILLING:


PREHEAT OVEN TO 400 F. SPRAY 9 INCH DIAMETER GLASS BAKING DISH WITH NONSTICK SPRAY.


WHISK 3/4 CUP SUGAR AND CORNSTARCH IN LARGE BOWL TO BLEND. ADD BERRIES AND TOSS TO COAT. LET STAND 10 MINUTES, TOSSING OCCASIONALLY.


ROLL OUT 1 DOUGH DISK ON LIGHTLY FLOURED SURFACE TO 12 INCH ROUND; TRANSFER TO PREPARED PIE DISH.


SPOON FILLING INTO DOUGH-LINED DISH. EVENLY SPREAD OUT THE THIN BUTTER SLICES OVER THE FRUIT FILLING.


ROLL OUT SECOND DOUGH DISK TO 13 INCH ROUND. DRAPE DOUGH OVER FILLING, AND TRIM OVERHANG TO ½ INCH. PRESS EDGES TOGETHER TO SEAL; FOLD OVERHANG UNDER AND CRIMP DECORATIVELY. CUT SEVERAL SMALL SLASHED IN TOP CRUST TO VENT.


IF DESIRED, USE A BASTING BRUSH TO APPLY A THIN COAT OF EGG WHITE-CREAM MIX OVER THE TOP CRUST, AND SPRINKLE WITH ADDITIONAL SUGAR.


BAKE UNTIL CRUST IS GOLDEN AND FILLING IS BUBBLING, ABOUT 50 MINUTES; COOL 30 MINUTES. SERVE WARM WITH NATURAL VANILLA ICE CREAM...ALTHOUGH IT'S QUITE GOOD AT ROOM TEMPERATURE TOO, AND HAS BEEN KNOWN TO MAKE A WONDERFUL NEXT-DAY BREAKFAST (IF THERE'S ANY LEFT!)

Notes

This is a simple recipe but so good -- when time is short, frozen berries and storebought crust do just fine...but if you have the time, fresh farmer's market berries and the homemade crust recipe listed can't be beat!

A dash of local for every season
