|This pie was absolutely wonderful…a lovely taste of summer!!|
I hate to say this but, this recipe caused me to rebel. First off, I have a favorite pie crust recipe. And because it has never failed me, I won’t deviate from it! It’s from Nick Malgieri…you can find it here. It always rolls out easily, is easy to handle, and is wonderfully flaky! So when it comes to my pie crusts…Nick is the man!
Second, I was not going to cook half the blueberries on the stove, let them cool, add them to the rest of the fruit, to then bake in the oven! Having baked many pies, it seemed like a unnecessary step to me. So I skipped that step and mixed my berries and nectarines together in a bowl, with the rest of the ingredients. That is, with the exception of the flour. I changed out the flour for two tablespoons of cornstarch and a tablespoon of tapioca! I really hate runny pies, and it’s been my experience that when I try to thicken my pies with flour, they never thicken sufficiently! Oh, and just one more thing….I made a lattice crust!! OK…I rebelled and I’m sorry but, this pie was perfectly delectable!! Happy Tuesday everyone!!
|I make Nick Malgieri’s pastry dough…wonderfully flakey and tender…made with all butter and in my food processor.|
|Rolls out easily…the best|
|Nectarines and blueberries mixed with all the other ingredients|
|Brushed with egg and sprinkled with sugar….ready for the oven|
|I put foil around my outer crust so that it doesn’t overly brown|
|Just out of the oven and ready to go to a dinner party!|
|It looked pretty….however, I never got a photo of the sliced pie|
|It was a perfect consistency and absolutely delicious!|
