Mixed Berry and Goat Cheese Pie
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons ice-cold water
- 2 cups blueberries
- 2 cups sliced strawberries
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
- 2 tablespoons flour, or as needed, for dusting
- Pulse the flour, butter, sugar, salt, and baking in a food processor just until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- With the machine running, slowly stream ice water through the feed tube into the flour mixture; continue running just until the dough forms into a ball.
- Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
- Mix the blueberries, strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, flour, salt, and goat cheese together in a large bowl.
- Turn the dough out onto a flour-dusted flat surface and roll to approximately a 10-inch round; fit into an 8-inch pie plate. Crimp the edges of the dough.
- Pour the filling into the crust. Put pie plate on a baking sheet.
- Bake in preheated oven until the crust edges are a light golden brown, 50 to 60 minutes.
Heat is the enemy of pie crust. Start with very cold butter, and chill your dry ingredients if it's a warm day before you begin. Keep your utensils cold and refrigerate the dough for a few minutes if it gets too soft before rolling. If you like, freeze the pie crust before filling to help maintain its shape while baking.
