    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 cup of very cold butter
    • ½ cup of cold water with ice
    • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Strawberry filling

    • 3 cups of strawberry cut into slices
    • ½ cup of Strawberry pulp
    • ½ cup flour
    • ½ cup of sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Blackberry Stuffing

    • 2 cups of blackberries
    • ¼ cup of BlackBerry pulp
    • ½ cup of sugar
    • ½ cup flour
    • Egg wash: 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk or water


Preheat the oven to 425 °F.


Pie Crust

  1. In a food processor, slowly mix together the flour, salt, sugar and butter until combined.
  2.  Add the cold water and lemon juice to the flour mixture, and slowly combine.

      3. Transfer the dough onto a piece of parchment paper, shape the dough into a ball, and place in the refrigerator.

    Strawberry Filling + Blackberry Filling

    1. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
    2. In a separate bowl, mix together the fresh strawberries and the Strawberry Pulp.
    3. Then, mix together both the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients.
    4. Repeat the process for the Blackberry Filling.

    Assembling the Pie

    1. Once the dough has chilled in the refrigerator, remove the dough from the parchment paper and roll out the dough, using a floured rolling pin. Reserve a small portion of the dough to use on top of the pie for decoration.
    2. In a greased pie dish, gently lay the dough across the dish and form it to the bottom, using your fingers.
    3. Pour the Strawberry Filling over 3/4 of the dough, and then pour the Blackberry Filling over the remaining 1/4 of the dough. This will create the American flag effect that is shown in the image above.
    4. Cut the reserved dough into thin strips and star shapes, then place the decorative dough pieces on top of the filling to create the American Flag design.
    5. Brush the dough with the egg wash mixture.
    6. Bake in the oven at 425 °F for 35-40 minutes, until the pie crust is golden brown. Let cool completely before serving.
