My Favorite Recipe for Berry Pie

Today I am sharing my favorite recipe for Berry Pie. I feel very strongly that if you are going to make a pie, why not make it beautiful? I can’t wait to share how to make this wonderful pie. 

Berry Pie Recipes

In the spirit of Living Beautifully (my theme for the month of February), why not make a beautiful berry pie?

I love to bake. Of course, I love making Apple Pie. And any dessert that has berries is my favorite. Many of you have already tried my Berry Cobbler Recipe. I decided it might be fun to make a mixed berry pie and I came up with one of my favorite recipes for berry pie.

Berry Pie with Rosettes

I didn’t have a recipe for berry pie so I took my berry cobbler recipe and just made some adjustments.  It is probably one of the best tasting and prettiest pies I have ever made. It’s perfect for any time of the year too. Even Valentine’s Day.

How to Make Berry Pie

I knew I wanted to make a fun crust so I went to Pinterest and found this lovely rosette and leaves pie crust on a site called The Kitchen McCabe. It was fairly easy to make but did take more time than I expected. 

Watch this quick video to see how I made the rosettes for the top crust of my pie.

To start, use a 2″ round cutter and cut circles using four pie crusts. (The fifth pie crust is for the leaves for the pie and the sixth pie crust is for the bottom of the pie.)

To make the flowers, place three of the circles, as pictured below.

Place the leaves all along the outside of the pie crust.

I cut about 1/3 of the bottom of the rose off with scissors (or a knife) so that the crust from the roses isn’t too thick. But you can certainly leave them as they are.

This berry pie is one of the most delicious and prettiest pies you will ever make. The crust recipe is courtesy of Chef Monique Chan.

Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • Ingredients
  • ** This recipe is to make one two-crust berry pie. If you want to make the rosettes on top of the pie, triple the crust recipe.
  • Crust:
  • 3 1/8 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups butter
  • 1 cup of ice water
  • Berry Pie:
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup frozen blackberries
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg white, whisked

Instructions

To make the crust:

  1. Stir flour, sugar, and salt together until well mixed.
  2. Dice butter into small cubes, and toss in flour mixture. Break up butter chunks until they are slightly larger than the size of peas.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of ice water and mix. Then, add water in small increments, targeting any dry spots. Mix until dough can form shaggy clumps when squeezed together. You will most likely need up to 1/4 cup ice water more, but add it one tablespoon at a time.
  4. Divide dough in half, and form each half into a disc. Wrap both discs in cling film, and refrigerate for at least one hour before using. Overnight is preferable, to hydrate the flour and relax the gluten. (If keeping the dough in the fridge for longer than a day, or freezing it for storage, use a second layer of plastic wrap.) Dough will keep up to 1 week in the refrigerator, and up to 2 months in the freezer.
  5. When ready to use, roll the dough out to a 14 inch (diameter) round. Flour dough and table surface as necessary, and work quickly to keep dough cold. Rotate dough while rolling to maintain circle shape, and prevent dough from sticking to the table.
  6. For the remaining dough, make the rosettes and leaves as instructed in the blog post or on the video.


To make the pie:

  1. Mix the frozen berries with the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. 
  2. Add berries to the crust and complete the pie.
  3. Whisk egg white and brush on top of the crust.
  4. Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and gently place (oil side down) on top of the crust.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove foil and continue to cook for 15 more minutes.
