Although I am sure that the crust recipe in the book is a good one, I stuck to my tried and true Cook's Illustrated vodka pie crust. I know that it works for me every time. I whipped it up and put it in the fridge to chill. In the meantime, I started with the filling. The recipe had me cook up some of the fruit and add the fresh to the cooked. I started with frozen berries, so I cooked all of them to work out some of the moisture. I also added a bit of cornstarch and water to thicken the fruit. I didn't want to take chances. The boy could not stop asking to taste a bit more of the filling - you know - to see if it needed more lemon juice....
I hate when I cut the slits off center. Ah well. It came out looking and smelling delicious!
You'd think I'd know by now not to cut into a pie when it is still warm because the juices all run out and you don't get a solid slice. I'm sorry. I couldn't help myself.
And then the next day, when it was cool and set, I had a bit with ice cream. I even waited long enough to photograph it.
This is a great fruit combo. I would absolutely make it again! Go check out the blogs by Liz and Hilary. They have the recipe. Then go make it yourself.
