Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll out bottom pie pastry; place into a 9 ½ inch deep dish pie pan; scuplt/flute edge into a upstanding ridge.
  2. Place pie shell in freezer for about 15 minutes; also place remaining unrolled pastry in the freezer.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°.
  4. In a big bowl, combine the berries, rhubarb, sugar, and lemon juice; toss gently to mix.
  5. Add in flour; toss gently again.
  6. Turn the filling into the chilled pie shell, smoothing the top of the fruit with a spoon.
  7. Dot the top of the filling with the butter.
  8. Using the large holes of a box grater, grate the other half of the pastry directly over the fruit, as if it were a block of cheese.
  9. Using a fork, gently move the gratings here and there for an even covering.
  10. Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the top.
  11. Put the pie on the center oven rack; bake for 30 minutes.
  12. Decrease oven temp to 375° and rotate pie 180°; also slide a foil-lined baking sheet onto the rack below to catch any spills.
  13. Continue baking 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the juices bubble thickly around the edge (**tent with foil if pie crust starts to become too brown).
  14. Transfer pie to a wire rack; let cool at least 2 hours before serving.
  15. *Don’t stress about making the top of the pastry nice and even; if it is a little clumpy, that is fine; the pastry tends to settle in the heat of the oven, leaving a cobbler-like finish.
