Ingredients

  • Ingredients for the crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter, very cold and cut in 1/2 inch dice
  • 2 tablespoons of ice water
  • 1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water (to brush on the top crust)
  • For the filling Ingredients:
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 cups peaches (cut in quarters or slices - depending on size)
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Instructions

1

Place all these ingredients into one large bowl and mix together well. Let sit for 20 to 30 minutes.

2

In a large bowl, mix together the flour and the powdered sugar and salt. Add the cold butter and mix with a pastry cutter or your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3

Add the water, one tablespoon at a time and mix until the dough comes together in a ball.

4

Flatten into a disk in between your hands and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 30 minutes (you can make it the day before too).

5

When ready to bake the pie, preheat the oven to 350F and position a rack in the middle.

6

Divide the pie into two balls, one slightly larger than the other.

7

Roll the larger ball to 1/8-inch thickness on a floured work surface. Place in your pie plate and trim the excess all around the pan.

8

Add the fruit mixture and spread out evenly on the bottom and pressing them down slightly.

9

Roll the second ball of dough to also 1/8-inch thick and cut 1/4-inch strips from it. Layer them on top of the pie.

10

Brush with the egg wash and bake for 30-40 minutes.
