Cold Weather and a Hot Berry Pie

We have been having a cold snap here as is most of the US. A week now of sub-freezing temps. I did get all the outside faucets wrapped, plants covered, and wood hauled. We will see when it does completely thaw how we faired.

I couldn’t resist shooting a few photos when it first froze, before we got snow.

I went out one morning with my camera in hand looking for odd moments captured in ice.

It looks like this last rose that may of bloomed won’t get the chance now….

Something about the cold weather makes me want to cook, or bake comfort food! So I gave in yesterday and baked this French Berry Pie.

I started with a single pie crust

Preheat oven to 375 f or 190c

then mixed together, in a separate bowl

3 to 5 cups frozen berries (I used Blueberries, raspberries, Marion berries)

3/4 cup organic sugar

1/3 organic all-purpose flour or GF thickening agent of your choice

2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Mix this well and spread into crust.

Mix in bowl

2/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour or other thickening agent
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix well, then add 6 tablespoons organic butter and using a fork mix until crumbly. Spread on top of berry mixture.

Bake for 40 min or until the crust is golden brown. Let it cool completely before cutting. Of course unless you like that warm liquid berry goo with fresh ice cream or whip cream.

Keep warm,
