Summer is almost here, and this is the season of baking pies in our home! If you have been a long time follower, you know that I love to bake. If you're following on Instagram then you probably often see my pictures of cupcakes, scones and more. What you probably don't know is Hubs is not a big cake fan. Whenever his birthday comes around I try to get creative and come up with an ice cream cake, pie or some other treat.
A couple years ago I created a Triple Berry Pie and it has since become his absolute favorite! With it being "berry picking season" and Father's Day approaching I have made this pie a few times already this year and decided it was time to share the recipe with all of you. It's so easy and has been a hit with everyone I know!
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
4-5 Tbls ice cold water
Mix the flour and salt together, then add the butter and shortening with a pastry blender until it's crumbly. Then add the water a couple TBLS at a time until a ball of dough forms.
2 cups of sliced strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup tapioca
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and let sit for 15 minutes.
While your berries are sitting make your pie crust (you will need to do the recipe twice to get a top and bottom crust). Gently roll out your bottom crust and place it on the bottom of your pie dish. Leave the remaining overlapping and fill with the berry mixture. Place your top crust on and pinch down the edges. I then use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut off the extra dough. Cut tiny slits in the top of the crust and use a pastry brush to add a little milk to the top.
Bake at 375 for 50 min while the edges are covered with foil, then bake for another 5-10 minutes.
