Servings: 8 people
9-inch pie pan
- 2 cups of blackberries or raspberries 220g
- 1 1/2 cups of blueberries 150g
- 1 cup of sliced strawberries 160g
- 3 Tbsp. cornstarch 24g
- 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar 100g
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 1g
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg 1g
- 1/4 cup of butter 60g
- 2 9-inch pie crusts Homemade or store-bought
- Flour for dusting
Make your homemade pie crust first or you can use storebought. I have a recipe for a great pie crust here on my blog.
Preheat the oven to 375 F/190 C. In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.Next, add in all the berries and use a spoon and mix everything together until well coated. The filling is ready to go. Roll out one of the pie crust doughs on a floured surface. Flip the pie plate over and make sure the rolled out dough is at least 1-inch in diameter larger all around. Roll up the pie dough onto the rolling pin and then flip the pie plate over and roll it onto the plate. Form the dough to the pie pan gently with your hands. Now pour in all the pie filling. Cut up some cubes of butter and place those on top. Next, roll out the other pie crust and set it on top and crimp around the edges with a fork to seal it. Then poke holes in the top with a fork. Trim around the edges of the pie with a knife to remove the excess pie dough.Or you can do a more fancy lattice top. Cut pie dough strips about 1 inch using a ruler. Then lay 4 or 5 strips down on top. Fold up every other one. Then cut out 4 or 5 more strips and lay them down weaving them in between the other ones. You may also cut out little designs from the leftover pie crust dough and place those on top of the pie.
Bake the pie for a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes on the middle rack. It makes it easier if you set the pie plate on a sheet pan. That will also catch any potential pie filling spillage. Check the pie after an hour, if it is getting too brown on top, cover it loosely with aluminum foil. The pie will be nice and golden brown as well as bubbly in the middle when done.
Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool completely before serving, it usually takes 30 minutes or longer to cool down. Enjoy!
