Pie: Summer Berries

Pie: Summer Berries

 

"This pie is sure to please everyone!"

Pate Sucre: 
1 ½ cups flour
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter, frozen
1 large egg, beaten
1 lemon, zested

Mix together flour, salt and sugar. Grate frozen butter into dry mix.
Once you achieve a sand like consistency, add your egg and lemon zest.
Mix just until formed. Wrap and place in fridge for 1 hour.(I recommend making this ahead of time)
Once chilled, roll out to a ¼ inch and place in greased pie plate. 
Bake at 350C for 10 minutes or just until the edges are turning light brown.

Filling:
4 ½ cups blended berries of your choice (even substitute for peaches, apples or cherry!)
½ cup sugar
¼ cup cornstarch
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt

Mix filling, let it sit until juices are absorbed from cornstarch. Place in par baked pie dough.
Place pie in 350C oven and bake for 30-45 minutes or until the filling is set and the dough is golden brown. Let set for 15 minutes before serving. Goes great with a scoop of ice cream!
