Blueberry Strawberry Peach Pie

May 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Now this is a special treat! Benjamin made this pie (with a little help from his dad)  as a Mother’s Day gift for his mom Monique. And it is a surprise for her tomorrow. We also made some homemade vanilla ice cream for some a la mode speciality!

Blueberry Strawberry Peach Pie

2          cups     Blueberries

2          cups     Strawberries

2          cups     Peaches, skinned and sliced

¼         cup       Tapioca, instant

1          cup       Sugar

¼         tsp        Salt

Procedure

  1. Pre heat oven to 450° F.
  2. Combine the fruit in a bowl and add the tapioca, sugar, salt and cinnamon and stir well then add the lemon juice and allow this to sit for 15 minutes.
  3. In another bowl cut in half the butter into the flour and then cut in the remaining butter until it looks like cornmeal.
  4. Slowly drizzle the cool water into the flour butter mixture until it forms a solid dough mass.
  5. Turn out the dough into two equal portions and using a rolling pin flatten out two 10” round by ¼” inch thick pieces of dough.
  6. Place one of the round dough pieces into a pie plate and form into the plate. Then with the tines of a fork press in holes to allow air to escape.
  7. Pre bake the pie shell for 10 minutes, then remove to cool
  8. While the pie shell is pre baking slice about 9 to 10 ½” wide strips of dough for the lattice crust topping.
  9. Gently pour the fruit filling mixture into the pie shell and even it out.
  10. Then make a basket weave lattice work with the dough strips on the top of the pie.
  11. Bake in the oven at 450° F for the first 10 minutes, and then reduce heat to 350° F for the next 45-50 minutes.
  12. Top the pie with foil if it looks like the lattice is browning to fast.
  13. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
