Andrea's Baby Shower Straw-Blackberry Pie

Another neighborhood baby shower meant another excuse to make scrumptious pie! For this Straw-Blackberry Pie, I chose ingredients purely based on what was on sale at the Whole Foods. Strawberries and blackberries it was! I prepared it the same as I would have made a Mixed Berry Pie. Everything came out great and the dish was licked clean. Here is the recipe:

Straw-Blackberry Pie (makes one 9" pie)

buttery pastry dough for bottom and top crust
1 c. white sugar
1 quart of strawberries, hulled and quartered
1-2 pints of blackberries
4 T. arrowroot starch
a splash of vanilla extract
juice from half of one lemon

Mix filling ingredients in a large nonreactive bowl. Roll out bottom crust and place in pie dish. Pour filling in. Roll out top crust, cut into lattice strips, and place on top of pie. Fold crust edges over and crimp to seal. Freeze pie for 10 minutes. Bake at 425 F for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F and continue to bake for another 40 minutes. Cool and serve.

Current Pie Tally: 220
