Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 5 cups
- frozen huckleberries, don't use fresh for this one
- 1 Tbl.
- water, don't use lemon juice
- 1 cup
- 1/2 cup
- 1/8 tsp.
- 1/8 tsp.
- 2 Tbl.
- butter, cut up (8-10 little pieces)
- egg, beaten
- enough pastry for a 9" deepdish double crust pie
1Remove berries from freezer and measure out 5 cups into large bowl. Set aside. Roll out dough for bottom of pie dish and line. (Place pie dough into plate.) Combine, in medium bowl, sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon. Drizzle water over berries, pour flour mixture over and toss to coat. (Not all will stick.) Start pouring berry mixture into pie shell. Add flour mixture from bottom occaisionally, sprinkling over. Keep adding til all berries and flour mixture is into pie shell. Dot top with small dabs of butter evenly. Top with top crust. Fold, rolling, bottom crust and top crust together upwards onto top. Flute edge or use a fork and press. Pierce top with knife to vent. Brush top with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sugar. As much as you like. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Then 350 for about 35 minutes. My pie didn't ever run over, but just in case, you might want to place a sheet of foil underneath on the rack below during the last 5 minutes. Will save your oven and prevent the smoke detectors from going off! LOL! (Been there had that happen many times with other pies!!)
Let cool. Serve rewarmed if preferred with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping. Can sit on the kitchen counter, covered, or refrigerate. I popped it in the fridge the second day, but could have after it cooled the whole time. It didn't wreck the crust. And it was HEAVEN...definately going to have to make another SOON!!
