Bumbleberry pie requests after my berry picking post the other day. (Y'all also begged for the blackberry crisp recipe and jam... the crisp is a GF work in progress so I'll share it another day and the jam was straight off the pectin box. Yup.) My blackberries were still a little bit frozen here.
blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. That's the best in my opinion.
sweet treat after school, I decided to try baking them in itty bitty mason jars, on a whim. Because itty bitty mason jars are the cutest. (Don't worry, I'll give you the whole pie instructions too, as well as the GF recipe and the regular recipe. You're welcome.)
Bumbleberry Pie: (for one double crust pie, regular and GF adaptations)
Any pie crust of your choice, for double crust pie. (I use the Gluten Free Pantry mix because it's the closest thing I've come across to my mama's no-fail pie crust recipe, and no one ever knows it's GF.)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour (For GF adaptations, I substitute rice flour here in the same quantity.)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Approx 5 cups berries. (Use any combination you like. I use equal parts black berries, raspberries and blueberries.)
*Roll out pie crust as usual, lining a 9-inch pan with half the crust. (If baking GF, make sure and use rice flour to roll out your crusts.) Mix the sugar, flour of your choice, and lemon juice together and then toss berries in and mix to coat. Transfer berry mixture into prepared pie pan. Top with remaining crust and pierce with fork a few times. Crimp edges, and brush top with milk. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. To prevent over browning, cover the edge of pie with foil. Bake at 375 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 20-25 minutes more until top is golden.

So let it be written. So let it be done.
