Berries + Cream Pie



Every year there's one day where we know for sure that this is it; it is finally the end of Winter, no matter how long ago Spring "technically" started. That day happened not too long ago, ushering in the start of sundresses and jean jackets; lunches in the park; and Saturdays spent cooling off with a cocktail in the company of close friends. With the newly regained warm, sunny weather, comes all the fresh fruit of the season. Pie time, y'all.

Berries + Cream Pie
makes 1 pie | total time: 4 hours | hands on time: 1 hour

Ingredients
Pie Crust
2 c. Flour
3 tbsp. Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Egg Yolk
8 tbsp. Butter, Unsalted
1/4 c. Buttermilk

Filling
3 c. Mixed Berries (Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries)
1 + 1/4 c. Granulated Sugar
2 tbsp. Lemon Juice
1/3 c. Flour
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 Eggs
1/2 c. Sour Cream

Crumble Topping
1/2 c. Flour
1/2 c. Granulated Sugar
1/4 c. Unsalted Butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF

For Pie Crust: In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, and salt together. Add butter and combine (can use hands or a food processor). Blend until thoroughly combined and resembles a coarse flour/meal. Add egg yolk and buttermilk and continue to combine until dough is formed. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. 

Roll out with a rolling pin, using flour to prevent sticking, and drape over a pie pan, then pressing into the pan until flush with the inside. 


For Filling: In a medium saucepan, heat berries, 1/4 c. Sugar, and lemon juice over medium-high heat until a syrup has formed. Turn down heat to medium and continue cooking, and stirring occasionally, until reduced (about 7-9 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool.

In a medium bowl, mix remaining 1 c. of sugar, flour, salt, eggs, sour cream, until well blended. Pour in the cooled berry mix and loosely combine. Pour into pie pastry.


For Crumble: combine all ingredients and blend until it resembles a coarse meal. Sprinkle evenly over pie filling. 

Bake pie at 350ºF for 65-70 minutes or until set. Remove from heat and cool before serving. 

Enjoy!
