Chuck's Triple Berry Pie With Cardamom Crust: Pushing Daisies
Why I Love This Recipe
Another great one from The Pie Hole
Ingredients You'll Need
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup frozen vegetable shortening, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
5 tablespoons (or more) ice water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend flour, sugar and salt in processor.
Add butter and shortening and cut in using on/off turns until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Mix 5 tablespoons ice water and vanilla in small bowl; add to processor and blend using on/off turns until mixture begins to form moist clumps, adding more ice water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry.
Gather dough into 2 balls. Flatten each into disk; wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour. (Can be prepared 2 days ahead. Keep refrigerated.
Soften dough slightly at room temperature before rolling out.)
FOR A PRE-BAKED PIE CRUST: Line the pie dish with crust; crimp edges and bake at 375 degrees F. until golden and baked through and piercing crust in a few places with fork if crust bubbles, about 30 minutes.
Cool and then fill with your choice of already prepared fillings, such as mousses, cream fillings, or lemon curd.
