DIRECTIONS

  • Crust: Cut the butter into chunks.
  • Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Work the butter gently into the dry mixture with a fork until pieces the size of peas form.
  • Sprinkle the water over and work it in.
  • (Do not overwork the dough.) Form the dough into a ball.
  • Filling: Gently toss berries with sweetening and klah bark in a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle citrus juice over mixture.
  • Spoon berries into crust and dot with butter.
  • For twelve gather pies: 1 crust recipe, 1 beaten egg, 1/2 filling recipe.
  • Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 1/8 inch thickness.
  • Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out 24 circles.
  • Lay out 12 on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • Divide filling among circles, spooning approximately 2-3 tablespoons into the center of each, leaving a 1/4 inch border.
  • Brush the border with egg.
  • Lay the second circle on top of each pie, and press edges together with a fork all teh way around.
  • (Stretch the top crust gently to fit if necessary.) If desired, mix together 1/4 cup water with 1 1/2 tbsp sweetening; brush top of each pie with mixture for a sugary glaze.
  • Witha knife, cut three or four short slits in the top of each pie.
  • Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes, until crust is golden.
