Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Pastry for Double-Crust Pie

  • 1 recipe filling for Blackberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, or Mixed Berries

  • 2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Milk (optional)

  • Sugar ( optional)

Pastry for Double-Crust Pie

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • cup shortening

  • Cold water

Directions

  1. Prepare and roll out pastry for Double-Crust Pie. Line a 9-inch pie plate with half of the pastry.

  2. In a large bowl combine the sugar and flour for desired berries, according to the amounts given below. Stir in berries and lemon peel or cinnamon. Gently toss berries until coated. (If using frozen fruit, let mixture stand for 45 minutes or until fruit is partially thawed, but still icy.)

  3. Transfer berry mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Trim bottom pastry edge of pie plate. Cut slits in remaining pastry; place on filling and seal. Crimp edge as desired.

  4. If desired, brush top crust with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes (or 50 minutes for frozen fruit). Remove foil. Bake pie for 25 to 30 minutes more or until filling is bubbly and top is golden. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
