Tips & Tricks

The crust in this pie is made in pate brisee fashion, which is one of the most popular all-purpose pie crusts traditionally made with wheat flour. It’s important to work pate brisee dough quickly to avoid melting the butter too much. Adding a splash of ice-cold water also results in a flaky dough you want to achieve with this pie. For added flavor, feel free to add a touch of powdered ginger, cinnamon, or a sprinkle of lemon juice to the berries before baking.
