Peach Blueberry Pie

peach blueberry pie

Today is a fantastic day. Do you know why? It’s a Pie Party! A few food bloggers were chatting on twitter and somehow this happened. Pretty awesome, right?

peach blueberry pie

I love pie, but I only make it a couple of times of year, In fact, I’m pretty sure the the last one I made was exactly a year ago. I should do it more, because though mine taste good, they always, always fall apart! I haven’t figured out why yet, but I’m working on it. (albeit very slowly. ;)

I went all-American this time around, for Independence day. Peaches & blueberries. Perfect for enjoying while watching fireworks.

Peach Blueberry Pie

Pie Crust:
From Martha Stewart

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter, and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, 8 to 10 seconds.

With machine running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream through feed tube. Pulse until dough holds together without being wet or sticky; be careful not to process more than 30 seconds. To test, squeeze a small amount together: If it is crumbly, add more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time.

Divide dough into two equal balls. Flatten each ball into a disc and wrap in plastic. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill at least 1 hour. Dough may be stored, frozen, up to 1 month.

Filling:
5 peaches, peeled and sliced
3 cups blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
juice of 1/2 lemon

1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll one disc of dough into a 12-inch round, 1/8-inch thick. Fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Set aside in the refrigerator.

In a large bowl, combine peaches, blueberries, sugar, flour, and lemon juice, toss to combine. Pour into pie plate, mounding in the center. Roll second disc of dough into a 12-inch round, 1/8 inch thick. Wet edges of the crust in the plate, then lay dough on top, pressing at edges to seal. Cut vents into top crust. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.


Remove pie from refrigerator. Brush crust with egg wash, then sprinkle with sugar. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes, until crust is browned at edges. Turn oven down to 350, bake for another 40-50 minutes.

Enjoy!

  28. Hannah, this looks delicious. I have major problems with the pie falling apart, too. I also have major lattice-crust issues. I love the look but I always screw it up!
    Have you tried par-baking your crust with weights and cooking the filling? Sometimes fresh fruit is better, though!
    Yum! I want to try.

  29. Ok, my favourite fruit are strawberries...
    But then the 2nd most favourite are peaches and blueberries! And I'm not kidding...
    I love summer pies... even if it isn't the best thing for my waistline:))

  30. Cook's Illustrated offers a great tip for naturally thickening the filling of pies (which keeps them from falling apart). They suggest adding a grated apple to the filling; apple has a high pectin content, which acts as a gelling agent and helps thicken the fruit. Using a neutrally-flavored apple, like Granny Smith, does this without imparting much flavor. Hope this helps!

  31. Just as stunning as this pie is your gorgeous dress! But really there's no denying the fact that this is one gorgeous dessert... those plump blueberries falling out. Don't let them get away!!!

  32. Funny you should mention peach blueberry pie. Delicious! I made this combination for the first time a few weeks ago while visiting a friend in Georgia. Check out my post at PortlandPeeps.blogspot.com dated Monday, June 27. As usual, I love your photos!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the rustic look of this pie and the combination of peaches and blueberries is just perfect! What a heavenly summer treat!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well, the falling apart is also a part of the 'home made' charm.. When made in big productions they add gelatin and other stuff to let it stick together.. And if you ask me, it still looks (very) delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yum! Peaches and blueberries. Why didn't I think of that!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Looks so good. If only my parents weren't on a diet, I'd make some pie!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I made a peach-blueberry pie last year; looks like it's time to do it again! I can't think of a more quintessentially summer dessert.

    Also, it's a good sign when the fruit tumbles gracfeully from the slice-- it means the filling isn't loaded with gelatin or other stabilizers.

  38. this looks absolutely delicious! I will definitely have to try this out some time soon!!! :)

  40. Loved, loved, loved this recipe. My first time ever making pie and it was delicious. My neighbor, a fourth generation pie maker, said it was so good, she helped herself to seconds. I also made your no knead bread. Still some tweaking to be done, but my three year old LOVED it, especially with honey. I LOVE your blog. Its so inspiring and such a beautiful place to visit.
