Mixed Berry Pie
Mixed berry pie begins with a buttery, flaky pie crust, then it’s packed with a mixture of fresh berries.
Hi friends! I hope you are all having a relaxing long weekend with family and friends, honoring the men and women who gave their lives so we can enjoy our freedom on this Memorial Day.
We had a relaxing weekend trying to get as many baby projects done. I’ve been slacking on that front but seeing there is barely 10 weeks to go, I need to get cracking. But I did find time on Saturday to bake this Mixed Berry Pie.
A lazy long weekend always calls for pie baking in my opinion. Especially now that it is officially summer and all the fresh berry pies in the world can be had. There is something just so slow and relaxing about pie baking that I save it for those days when I am getting little things done around the house.
OK, let’s get to this mixed berry pie; a classic summer pie recipe. It all starts with a good buttery, flaky pie crust. I used my go-to, which gives you the same result every time. Next, we toss some berries together. Use your favorite berries in any combination you like. I used strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. All THE berries.
Toss those guys with some brown sugar, cornstarch, a pinch of salt, some ground ginger and a good dose of lemon juice and zest to bring out the flavor of the berries.
Pile it all high into your crust.
Make pretty with a lattice top (perfect or imperfect, it will all taste the same) or cover entirely for a double crusted pie.
Finally, bake that sucker up for about an hour until the crust is golden and those berry juices are flowing. Always a good sign it’s going to be good.
Just when you think it’s time to enjoy the mixed berry pie, you realize you need to let the pie cool.
This is a crucial step as the juices need to sit, marinate and thicken as the pie cools. So be patient. Go do a load of laundry.
Once you are ready to serve, slice up and share with loved ones. It’s pie after all and it’s meant for sharing!
Now, let’s bake pie all summer long!!
