Blueberry Strawberry Pie

It's been a while since I've made a pie. What better time than the Fourth of July?

Surprisingly, the Internet has very few recipes with just strawberry and blueberry to offer. So I adapted this three berry pie recipe from one of the most dependable recipe blogs: JoyOfBaking, with 2 cups of blueberries and 3 cups of halved strawberries.

The lemon/sugar mixture is a dry mixture.

The pie crust is from SmittenKitchen. At first I was very skeptical because the dough was not as crumbly as I'm used to, but it bakes really well!

Once the pie crust is rolled out, pour in the berry mixture.

Then I cut out stripes with a pastry cutter. Very evenly as always.

Of course I could have studied up on the craft of making a lattice pie crust, but I decided to improvise...because a summer cabin and a day of fishing was about to begin! So this is how I started, alternating over and under strips.

The filling bubbled up. The crust was puffy and flaky. The pie was delicious without being overly tart.

Cut a piece and enjoy your Independence Day!
