And ugh, I forgot to take a picture of it. However, I can tell you that the recipe is great if you do it a bit differently than I did. The season is absolutely perfect for pies. The berries are ripe and so is the fruit. You can mix and match whatever you want, and I decided to use the harvest that fills half of our freezer at home.
I think I took up my berries too late, so the pie became rather wet, since they were still a bit frozen when I put them into the dough and then in the oven. Although, despite the mistake, it became very delicious and the dough is really great! I have to admit that the pie is not the typical super sweet cake-like dessert one could expect. It has the sweetness from the dough and the natural one of the berries, but that’s it. It depends on what filling you use. My berries made it slightly sour, which was also extremely good, because it fitted perfectly to the sweetened dough.
Here is the super easy recipe:
300 g flour
100 g powdered sugar
150 g soft butter
800 g berries or fruit
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
If you use frozen berries, you take them up from the freezer and let them defreeze while you make the dough. Mix all of the ingredients for it (remember to put in the egg at last) and gather it quickly. If it is too fluid, you can add more flour. Then wrap it up and put it in the fridge for ½ hour.
Afterwards, you take 1/3 of the dough to make the traditional lines across the topping. When you have carefully rolled the dough out so that it fits in the form, you put in the berries (mixed with vanilla), cut out the dough lines/stripes and place them on top. Afterwards you bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes at 190 degrees Celsius. The pie is ready when the dough is golden brown.
Tadaaa! Easy 🙂
Do you guys have a trick for the berries, so that they do not make the pie so watery?
