Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Mix together 2 cups flour and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Make a well in the center, pour in the oil and water and stir together.

  • Separate the dough into two balls, using 3/4 of the dough for the first ball and 1/4 of the dough for the second. Place a sheet of wax paper over the bigger ball of dough, and roll it out; the dough can be crumbly, and the wax paper will help keep the dough in one large piece. Line an 8 inch pie pan with dough. Roll out the small ball of dough similarly, and set aside.

  • In a small bowl, mix together sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon. Place berries in a large bowl, and sprinkle sugar mixture over the berries. Gently stir to coat. Spread filling into the dough lined pie pan. Cover with top crust, and pinch the crusts together. Poke holes in the top to allow steam to escape during baking. Line the edges of the crust with tin foil to prevent burning.

  • Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned and filling is hot and bubbly.

I signed up just so I could review this recipe..... I'm sorry but it was quite awful. The pie crust was light but it had no flavor and was very bland. It was missing something. Also it is more than crumbly when you mix it I had to use pieces and push it into the pie crust - it would not roll at all it just fell apart......consider using a VERY high quality oil and flour as this is what people will taste. Berry mix inside the pie was non-interesting although it held together nicely. I would recommend adding more sugar or trying to make the crust with butter and sugar which I plan to try after I've picked more berries - all and all - if you have a FREE supply of berries to waste then try this recipe otherwise just make a pie crust and save yourself the disappointment.

I thought this turned out really well. The crust would have been crumbly if I hadn't added more water....I know some pple feel that you can't adjust baking recipes but flour takes on the humidity of an area so you have to be able to adjust. So I did. The crust is basic and it tastes fine. It's not very flaky though so bear that in mind. I added some flour to the filling so it would firm up a bit. Worked great. I really like the taste of this pie. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Filling was delicious crust was a bit too crumbly for me. It seemed to never brown or crisp. Would make it again with a different crust. Read More
