Triple Berry Pie…

triple-berry-pie-crumble-toppingHappy Wednesday everyone! Last year over the fourth I was in NYC with my mom and sister and while I had a blast and absolutely love New York, I felt like I missed out on a good old fashion Fourth of July. I remember scrolling through instagram that day and seeing all the fun photos from family festivities and BBQ’s, which made me miss home but there was one photo in-particular that for some reason struck a cord with me. It was a photo of a homemade berry pie. I had never had a desire to bake a pie until that moment. For some reason I found myself extremely home sick, wishing I was in my kitchen baking a pie. I still can remember looking at that photo and thinking to myself, next year I’m totally baking a pie! So here it is, my first ever home baked pie (that surprisingly was not as difficult as I thought it would be, promise!). Hopefully this will inspire you to bake a festive pie for your family this weekend!

Plates/Bowls: C.Wonder (love this version too) | Pie Dish: William Sonoma

Ingredients:

{for the crust}

  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 cups crisco
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 10 Tbsp water (chilled)

{for the filling}

  • 5-6 cups fresh mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup sugar (heaping)
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch (I used minute tapioca)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

{for the topping}

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour

Instructions: 

{crust}

  • Place flour, crisco, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Mix together.
  • Add the water.
  • Mix together with a pastry knife.
  • Cut dough in half and roll out (makes 2 crusts).
  • Place dough in a pie dish and let it chill in the fridge.

{filling}

  • Wash berries under cold water.
  • Place berries, sugar, tapioca and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  • Gently toss together with your hands.
  • Set aside.

{topping}

  • Place flour, sugar and softened butter into a large mixing bowl.
  • Mix together with a pastry knife until it starts to crumble.
  • Set aside.

{assembling the pie}

  • Remove crust from fridge and brush one egg white over the crust (this will help your pie crust not get soggy).
  • Place the filling into pie.
  • Sprinkle topping over the filling, covering it completely.

{baking the pie}

  • Place in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until your crust and topping are lightly brown.
  • Serve the pie at room temperature.

  1. Yum! Looks absolutely delicious! There is something so comforting about home made pie, isn’t there? I’ve never made one with a crumbled topping, I may just have to give it a try!

  2. I love home made pie, especially apple. I’ve got an amazing no fail pie crust recipe. You can never go wrong with pie.

  3. I LOVE this post, Rach! It’s definitely a nice break from the Outfit Inspiration posts you put together on Wednesdays for sure. I’ll definitely be pinning this since my best guy friend loves pie and has been wanting to try out new dessert recipes. Is there a particular you reason you chose raspberries over strawberries? I’m asking because I’ve never seen a raspberries in a pie in comparison with the typical blackberries and blueberries.

  4. This looks yummy although when I looked at the recipe, saw it was filled with crisco-2 cups to be precise. eeks! Super unhealthy.

  5. I love your shirt it’s so cute, and that pie looks delicious. I know what you mean about being homesick, last year instead of going to my town’s fireworks we went to my cousins house and I just spent the whole time wishing I were home doing what we normally do. I’m so happy to be doing that this year.

  6. Beautiful shade of blue in your Powder Bath, but you might be surprised to learn that painting your ceiling the wall color will make it even more outstanding. By wrapping the room in the same color, you will no longer have the awkward white contrast of the lower ceiling.and your eye will see a sea of blue instead of blue and white. Since you have great lighting, the room will not be too dark, and there is nothing prettier than a dramatic Power Bath. So impressed with the room overall!!!!

  7. This is the 3rd time that I have been making that pie! I brought it to a birthday diner and got sooooooo many compliments!
    Thank you Rachel for this great recipe:)
