A scrumptious way to enjoy summer’s bounty of berries when they are at their sweetest and most juicy.
- 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided, divided
- 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon plus a pinch fine sea salt
- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, chilled and cut into small cubes, chilled and cut into small cubes
- 3 cups (about 3/4 pound) blackberries
- 3 cups (about 3/4 pound) raspberries
- 2 cups (about 1/2 pound) blueberries
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon raw or turbinado sugar, divided
- 1 large orange or lemon, Zest of
- 1 tablespoon milk or heavy cream
Put 2 cups flour, granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse briefly to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. (Alternatively, cut butter in by hand with two table knives.) Add 1/4 cup ice-cold water and pulse, or mix by hand with a fork, just until dough begins to come together. Form dough into two 4-inch discs, cover and chill until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Put blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, 1/2 cup of the raw sugar, remaining 1/2 cup flour, zest and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and mash together gently until well combined and juicy but still chunky; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one piece of dough into a 10-inch circle and gently transfer to an 8-inch pie pan. Transfer berry mixture to pie pan; set aside.
Roll out remaining dough as you did the first piece and transfer to pie pan, gently draping it over the berry filling. Firmly press the edges together and then trim away excess dough. Pinch or crimp edges as desired and cut 3 slits in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape. Brush crust with milk and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon raw sugar then bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 1 hour. Set aside to let cool completely then serve.
