Stages of cooking

  1. Make the crust: Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in cold shortening with 2 knives or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until flour mixture is moistened. Do not add more water than you need: when you squeeze a handful of the moistened pastry mixture, it should form a ball. Divide the dough in half and shape into balls. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Transfer one dough ball to a lightly floured surface. Roll dough from the center to the edges to form a 12-inch circle. Wrap crust around the rolling pin. Unroll it onto a 9-inch pie plate. Ease crust into the pie plate, being careful not to stretch it. Trim the bottom crust evenly with the rim of the pie plate, and return the pastry-lined pie plate to the refrigerator.

  3. Make the filling: Mix sugar and cornstarch together in a large bowl. Add raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries; gently toss to coat. Allow fruit mixture to stand for about 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place a baking sheet in the oven to preheat.

  5. Roll out remaining dough for top crust. Stir berry mixture and pour into the pastry-lined pie plate. Place top crust over filling and trim the edges, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Fold top crust under bottom crust, pressing lightly to seal. Crimp the edges and cut vents in the top to allow steam to escape. To prevent over-browning, cover the edges with foil.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven on the baking tray for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbling, about 20 minutes more.

History of the Three Berry Pie: Pies have been a staple in American cuisine since the days of colonialism, with the first recorded pie recipe dating back to 1381 in England. Fruit pies, in particular, gained popularity in the 19th century as fresh fruits from around the country became more widely available. Three Berry Pie, in particular, gained popularity for its combination of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, which make for a bright and decadent dessert.

Tips and Tricks for Three Berry Pie Recipe:

  1. Use cold ingredients: Cold shortening and water will help keep your dough from becoming too sticky and will make it easier to work with.
  2. Handle the dough with care: Be gentle when rolling out the pie crust and transferring it to the pie plate. Overworking or stretching the dough can cause it to become tough.
  3. Allow the fruit to macerate: Letting the fruit sit with the sugar and cornstarch mixture helps create a thick and flavorful filling.
  4. Preheat your baking sheet: This will help the bottom of your pie crust cook evenly and prevent it from becoming soggy.

Tips for presenting the dish:

  1. Let the pie cool before serving: This will help the pie set and make it easier to slice.
  2. Add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream: This will complement the sweetness of the berries.
  3. Garnish with fresh fruit: Add some extra strawberries, raspberries or blueberries on top of the pie for a pop of color.
