Prep time: 40 mins
Cook time: 60 mins
Total time: 1 hour 40 mins
Ingredients
  • Crust:
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
  • 3-4 tablespoons ice water
  • Filling:
  • 2 pints blueberries, washed and dried
  • 12 ounces raspberries, washed and dried
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar
  • Haagen Daz Vanilla Ice Cream
Instructions
  1. For the crust:
  2. Combine flour and sugar in a food processor. Pulse on/off to mix. Add butter and pulse on/off until butter is size of baby peas. While using pulse on/off button, add ice water 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix only until dough becomes a ball. The dough should not be wet and sticky.
  3. Shape into disc and wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  4. For the filling:
  5. Preheat oven to 400°. Set aside 9” pie plate.
  6. Combine blueberries, raspberries, flour, sugar and butter into large mixing bowl. Very gently stir to combine. Set aside.
  7. For the topping:
  8. Beat the egg yolk into the whipping cream and set aside.
  9. Roll out dough, either on a lightly floured surface or between sheets of wax paper, so that it is large enough to fit into pie plate with a 2” overhang of pie crust that will be used to fold over fruit. Spray the pie plate with cooking spray (i.e. Pam) and transfer the dough to the plate.
  10. Brush topping over inside of pie shell. Transfer fruit to the shell, scooping flour/sugar mixture with fruit.
  11. Fold dough overhang over fruit. This will not cover all of the fruit. Brush exposed dough with topping and sprinkle sugar on top. Place pie plate on baking sheet.
  12. Bake in 400° for 35 minutes. If crust is getting dark, tent aluminum foil over pie and continue baking for another 15-25 minutes until pie is bubbling.
  13. Cool completely. Slice and serve with Haagen Daz Vanilla Ice Cream.
  14. Betsy's tidbits:
  15. If you prefer a sweeter pie, add an additional ¼ cup sugar to filling.
  16. Haagen Daz is my go-to vanilla ice cream. Choose whichever is your favorite to add some ‘white’ to your Red White & Blue Pie.
Notes
Additional time is needed to refrigerate dough.
