Mixed Berry Pie

Dorie says “As soon as there are berries in the market, there’s pie in our house”. I went with that theme for this week’s baking assignment for Everyday Dorie. Berries went on sale at one of my markets for $1.98/6oz, I took that as a sign to make a pie. I did not use Dorie’s pie crust recipe, I stuck with my tried and true recipe. Dorie’s baking instructions state “until the filling is bubbling up through the slits.” My filling bubbled out of the sides but I took that as a good sign.

The reviews. This pie did not thicken up for me and I used the maximum amount of flour 4 tablespoons. I have not cooked fruit pies before with flour, usually pectin or tapioca. It tasted good but was a soupy mess.

Fresh-Off-The-Cob Corn Chowder

Continuing with my make-ups, corn has just come into season in California so this soup made the list for the week. This was a delicious soup and a crowd pleaser including my picky-eating son. The down side of this recipe is its fussiness and the number of dishes. The recipe took much longer to make than I had anticipated and I felt like I used every dish in the kitchen. Practicality speaking, I don’t think it will get made again. I have made a similar recipe, Summer Corn and Sweet Pepper Soup from Das Cookbook by Hans Rockenwagner. It is just as yummy but not as fussy. To see what others made head over to Cook the Book Fridays.

    Both of the recipes looks delicious.The pie looks yummy, and I loved that soup when we made it.


  2. sounds like a good summer dinner to me! wonder why that pie didn’t thicken up….


  3. That corn chowder was so good! And so odd that the filling didn’t thicken but good to know for when I make it!


  4. I haven’t made a blueberry pie like this before, so I’ll look out for its potential pitfall. For the corn chowder, you’ve brought back similar reaction I had regarding how fussy it is. Spot on!

    The pictures make me want both lol ! I recall the corn chowder and how delicious it was. I’ve yet to make the pie but think I need to make my family a fruit pie in 2020. Not sure I’ve veered from Apple before, truth be told. Berries usually go for a crumble so this will be a fun change. Stay well !!


  7. Oh I remember we really enjoyed that soup! Love berries but can’t say I have made a pie..maybe they don’t last long enough haha. Will look forward to that one when we get there as a group.
