There is nothing quite like a fresh summer pie – bringing one to a family barbecue, serving it up at the Shabbat table, or simply using up the berries from a day of family fun spent picking fruit.
Pies – specifically pie crusts - are one of those intimidating foods that many people never try out themselves, but once you get in the swing of things are really not too hard. The key is making sure everything you’re using is extra cold – the butter (or margarine) and shortening are frozen, the water is ice cold – some people even refrigerate the bowl they use. I would never say that you can’t use a store-bought crust, but the results will be so much better when you make it yourself.
Fill the pie with the topping below, or your own favorite combination of fruits, and impress the whole family (especially if you master the lattice crust!)
