Berry Crumb Pie

The ingredients look like a lot, but this berry crumb pie comes together quickly for your  gatherings.


– 1 1/4 C of Bob's Red Mill AP Gluten-Free Flour Blend (can sub wheat flour) – 1/4 tsp of xanthum gum (leave out if using wheat flour) – 1/2 tsp of sea salt – 1/4 C of coconut oil – 1/3-1/2 C of water  – 1 pint of fresh blueberries – 1 pint of fresh berries – 1/2-3/4   of brown sugar, to taste – 1/4 tsp of sea salt – 1/2 tsp of cinnamon – 3-4 Tbsp of corn starch – juice from 1 lemon, about 2 Tbsp


Crumb topping (optional) – 3/4 C of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour Blend – 1/4 C of brown sugar, or sweetener of choice – 1 tsp of cinnamon – 1/4 tsp of salt – 2 Tbsp of coconut oil – 1 Tbsp of lemon juice

Begin by preheating oven to 350 degrees and lightly oiling a pie plate with a bit of coconut oil.

Make your dough in a medium mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients, whisk together. Add coconut oil and cut in with two forks or your fingers until it resembles crumbs. Slowly drizzle in cold water, mixing with your hand, until dough comes together in a moist but not sticky ball. Mix with your hand just enough to incorporate. Place in fridge to chill a bit while you make filling.

Combine berries through lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl and toss to coat. It should be moist but have little to no liquid in bottom of bowl. If too wet, add a bit more corn starch and set aside.

Place dough in oiled pie pan and use your hands to press it into the place. You want it to be about 1/4' thick and evenly spread out. Gently push it up the sides of pan, and use your fingers to shape it around rim. Doesn't need to be fancy, just create a little lip.

Make the crumb topping by mixing all the dry ingredients in a small bowl, adding the coconut oil, and mixing it gently with your fingers until crumbs form, add lemon juice and toss gently. Set aside.

Pour berry filling into crust, top with crumb, if using (you can double crumb recipe if you like extra crumb on your pie), cover with foil and put in oven. Bake for 30 minutes and check pie. Berries should be bubbling and crust should be firm. If so, remove foil and bake another 10 minutes to get crumb nice and golden brown.

Remove from oven and LET COOL THOROUGHLY, before trying to cut and serve. When cool it will hold it's shape nicely. If cut when hot it will likely look like a hot mess on a plate. Either way, enjoy!
