Ingredients for Blueberry-Elderflower Pie

  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) very cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup very cold vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons elderflower liqueur (such as St-Germain) or elderflower juice
  • For the filling:
  • 8 cups fresh blueberries (about 4 pints)
  • 3/4 to 1 cup sugar (depending on the sweetness of your berries), plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons elderflower liqueur or elderflower juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg

Directions for Blueberry-Elderflower Pie

  1. Make the crust: Put the flour, sugar and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the butter and shortening; pulse just until the pieces are the size of large peas. While pulsing, gradually add the elderflower liqueur and 1/3 cup ice water until the dough comes together. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Divide the dough between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; use the plastic wrap to form each half into a disk. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, make the filling: Toss the blueberries, sugar, flour, elderflower liqueur and salt in a large bowl. Let sit until juicy, 30 minutes. Position a rack with a baking sheet in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  3. Roll out 1 disk of dough into a 12-inch round on a lightly floured surface. Ease into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate, pressing the dough into the bottom and up the side. Roll out the second disk of dough on a lightly floured surface.
  4. Toss the berries again and pour the mixture into the prepared crust. Moisten the edge of the crust with cold water and lay the second dough round over the filling; gently press the top and bottom crusts together around the edge. Fold the overhanging dough under itself and crimp the edges. Cut a few slits in the top crust to let steam escape. Beat the egg with 1 teaspoon water. Brush the pie with the egg mixture and sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  5. Put the pie on the hot baking sheet and bake 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F; bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, about 55 more minutes. (Cover the edge of the crust with foil if it is browning too quickly.) Transfer to a rack and let cool at least 4 hours before serving.

  • Blueberry – See textBlueberries are a widely distributed and widespread group of perennial flowering plants with blue or purple berries. They are classified in the section Cyanococcus within the genus Vaccinium. Vaccinium also includes cranberries, bilberries, huckleberries and Madeira blueberries. Commercial blueberries—both wild (lowbush) and cultivated (highbush)—are all native to North America. The highbush varieties were introduced into Europe during the 1930s.Blueberries are usually prostrate shrubs that can vary in size from 10 centimeters (4 inches) to 4 meters (13 feet) in height. In commercial production of blueberries, the species with small, pea-size berries growing on low-level bushes are known as “lowbush blueberries” (synonymous with “wild”), while the species with larger berries growing on taller, cultivated bushes are known as “highbush blueberries”. Canada is the leading producer of lowbush blueberries, while the United States produces some 40% of the world supply of highbush blueberries.
  • Fruit – In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants that is formed from the ovary after flowering.Fruits are the means by which flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) disseminate their seeds. Edible fruits in particular have long propagated using the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship that is the means for seed dispersal for the one group and nutrition for the other; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Consequently, fruits account for a substantial fraction of the world’s agricultural output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic meanings.In common language usage, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges, and strawberries. In botanical usage, the term “fruit” also includes many structures that are not commonly called “fruits”, such as nuts, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, and wheat grains.
