As you probably know, I write bi-weekly posts for Better Homes and Gardens style blog, Style Spotters and their food blog, Delish Dish. I actually met the wonderful folks at BHG over a year ago at their first ever Stylemakers event in NYC. It has been a pure joy to be writing for them for over a year now. Their digital team is made up of some of the most fabulous and kind people I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet.

Anyway, the other day while I was on Pinterest, I saw a BHG recipe for Double Cherry Slab Pie. Making a slab pie was on my short list for A Year of Pie, so I took it as a sign that this should be Pie #2.

I was so happy to see that this crust was slightly different from the first one I made. This crust called for butter and shortening. Attempting different kinds of crusts is definitely a mandatory part of my pie-baking process.

When preparing posts for Delish Dish, we are challenged is to give recipes a fun tweak. So I took the double cherry pie and turned it into a mixed berry pie. My local grocery store had a gorgeous selection of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries, and they were destined to be a part of a delicious pie. I found a few recipes online for mixed berry pies and adapted my filling based on those.

Overall, I was really pleased with how this pie turned out. I also liked the crust. While my first crust was a little thicker and flakier, this crust was more delicate and light. I also rolled it out a lot thinner in order to cover the pan. This crust reminded me more of the crust my mom and grandma make.

The only change I would make to this is serving it with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. I didn’t have any on hand when I was photographing this, and I wanted to show this particular pie without it. Ice cream would have put this pie over the top in the deliciousness department. But then again, I prefer any fruit pie with ice cream.
