Triple Berry Pie
Triple Berry Pie – flaky and crumbly pie with sweet and delicious triple berry filling. This recipe is easy, fail proof and amazing!
The perfect summer treat is a pie baked right at home. Fragrant and delicious, a pie is a great way to use all those berries harvested during the hot summer months. I particularly like blackberries, raspberries and blueberries, which are used to prepare this Triple Berry Pie. But you can use any variation of berries you prefer.
For the crust, I decided to go with a shortening-based recipe. I like butter, but I find shortening creates a flakier result. I also suggest filling a glass with water and ice cubes to ensure the water is as cold as possible. This will help you make pea-sized crumbs directed in the recipe.
If by chance you decide frozen berries are the way to go, make sure you allow the pie to bake longer. You’ll definitely want to surround the pie initially with foil to bake the full time. Then remove the foil to bake the pie for 30-40 more minutes.
