My youngsters and I have been visiting the native farmer’s market this previous week and spied juicy raspberries wrapped in quaint aquamarine searching for tiny, grubby arms to fortunately eat them.  We ate most of them on the best way house, however saved a number of to make these dainty hand pies for a picnic the following day.

The dough I created for these pies relies on a common ratio of components that, when adopted crudely, makes a sensational pie crust.  Ratios are nice to make use of when baking; they’re often simple to recollect and permit for optimum creativity. This pie dough is as simple as 3-2-1. The truth is, on the Culinary Institute of America, it’s referred to as the “3-2-1 pie dough” created by Chef George Higgins. The breakdown goes as follows: 3 components flour; 2 components fats; 1 half liquid. 

In my recipe I mixed a number of flours, added an egg as a binder to make the dough a little bit extra pliable, sugar for sweetness and vanilla for taste.  Out of the oven, my youngsters wolfed these up virtually as quick because the market contemporary raspberries.  Packaged in little luggage, they have been a success at our picnic, too! When contemporary berries are discovered at your market, I hope you suppose to make these simple, candy  pies!carlee pie pockets (1)

Chef’s notes:

The flour on this ratio could be any flour. All function is nice flour to begin with. The softer the flour or much less protein/gluten it comprises, a extra tender crust is created.

The fats could be butter, shortening, lard or a mix thereof.

The liquid is often water, however be at liberty to make use of juice, too.

The flour, butter and water needs to be very chilly to maintain the protein/gluten from activating. I place the flour and butter within the freezer earlier than I combine them and add ice to the water to maintain it chilly.

I’ve discovered {that a} variation of butter sizes in a dough creates probably the most flaky dough. Strive to not over combine your dough to the place all of the butter is in “Pea sizes” as they are saying. Some needs to be pea measurement whereas others are edamame measurement (if we’re nonetheless going with the inexperienced vegetable metaphors…) even pistachio measurement… hey,it’s nonetheless inexperienced.

Lastly, strive to not deal with your dough an excessive amount of whereas shaping it earlier than it rests within the fridge. You don’t need to activate the gluten/protein within the flour, it can make for a troublesome, chewy dough.  Pull it collectively, wrap it up and say, “see ya in thirty!” Nevertheless, having mentioned that, this dough I made is fairly forgiving.  Simply be mild, give it love and it’ll love you again.

Take away the sugar and vanilla for a extra savory crust. Additionally add Parmesan or herbs to the crust to up the savory flavors; oh, the probabilities . . . !

For two, – 9” pies; begin with 12 oz. of flour; 8 oz. of fats; 4 oz. of liquid – go from there and have enjoyable!
