This tasty treat was taken from a good old-fashioned book - Food Made Fast - Baking from Williams-Sonoma. This is a quick-and-easy treat if you already have pastry dough in the fridge or freezer. Here's a link to my mom's fabulous pie crust.
- 4 cups berries (I use a mix of blue/black/raspberries)
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 3 Tbsp flour
I strayed from my usual precise measurements for this because hey - it's filling. Precision is not required here. You can afford to be sloppy. Toss everything together.
Roll out the pie crust (on a floured surface) into a large circular shape and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon the filling onto the dough, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold up the edge and pleat loosely (or do whatever else your heart desires). If you like to brush your pastry with butter or egg feel free but I like it "natural." Bake until the filling bubbles adn the pastry is golden brown - about 25 minutes at 425° F. Cut into pie-slice shapes and serve, warm if you can and with ice cream if you really want to enjoy it.
