4 Time Winner

Newest Video Recipe - Berry Pie

 

New Video Recipes Every Thursday by 5 PM Eastern Time.

This Berry Pie has a crisp and buttery top and bottom pastry crust, with a filling full of lightly sweetened blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. This dessert is perfect during the Summer months when berries are at their best. I love how the berries soften as they bake, becoming almost jam-like in texture and flavor. This pie is excellent served à la mode, that is, with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. 

Fruit pies need a crust and, for me, nothing beats Pate Brisee (short crust pastry), which has a wonderful buttery flavor and crumbly texture. It is easily made in the food processor, just remember that the butter and the water need to be very cold and do not over mix. Once made, the pastry must be chilled until firm. The tricky part is rolling out the pastry. In order for it to roll out smoothly, without it sticking to the counter or tearing, it has to be at the right temperature. Too cold (it will tear), too warm (it will stick). This "feel" for the dough will come with practice, so don't get discouraged if you have some trouble at first. If the rolled out pastry tears a little as you put it into the pie plate, just patch it. Now, the top crust of this Berry Pie is in the form of pastry stars. I know that this step is a little more time consuming but it does make for a very festive pie. It also serves the purpose of allowing the bubbling fruit juices underneath the crust to evaporate. Lastly, when you pull the baked pie out of the oven there is the temptation to cut into it right away. Resist if you can. Fruit pies need several hours to set so that when you finally cut into them the fruit is juicy but these juices will not run. 

Now, for the filling. The filling uses a total of five cups (1.2 liters) of berries, and you can vary the type. Just keep in mind that you may have to adjust the amount of sugar depending on the sweetness of the berries. It is important to pick through the berries and discard any soft, moldy, or crushed ones.
