Deep Dish Blueberry Pie
10 oz All-purpose flour
1/4 ts Salt
11 tb Cold unsalted butter (cut
Into 1-inch pieces)
3 tb Cold vegetable shortening
(cut into 1-inch pieces)
4 tb Ice water, if needed
8 c (4 pints) blueberries
1 c Sugar
1 tb Grated lemon zest
2 tb Blueberry vinegar
5 tb Quick tapioca
1 ts Cinnamon
1 tb Cold unsalted butter, cut
1 Egg beaten for eggwash
To make the crust: Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and
shortening pieces and mix until the pastry clumps together the size of
hazelnuts. Add the water a little at a time until the mixture just holds
together. Do not overmix. Remove dough to a floured board. Shape the mass
into a disk, wrap with plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
To make the filling:
Combine all ingredients except the butter in a large bowl. Transfer mixture
to a 9 by 2 inch deep- dish pie pan. Dot with the butter. Roll the dough
out to 1-inch larger than the baking dish. Top berries in casserole with
the dough. Flute the edges of the dough and cut several slits in the dough
to allow steam to escape. Brush with the eggwash.
Bake the pie on a parchment covered sheet pan for 10 minutes, lower the
heat to 375 degrees and cook and additional 40 to 50 minutes, or until
crust is browned. Let cool slightly, serve warm or room temperature.
Yield: 1 9- inch pie
