Ingredients

  • 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups each fresh or frozen blueberries, raspberries and sliced strawberries
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen chopped rhubarb
  • 4 cups chopped peeled baking apples
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • EGG WASH:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water

Directions

In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Whisk egg, vinegar and water; sprinkle over dry ingredients and toss. If needed, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough can be formed into a ball. Divide into four balls. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out two balls to fit two 9-in. pie pans. Combine filling ingredients (partially thaw fruit if necessary); spoon into crust. Roll remaining pastry to fit pies; place over filling. Seal and flute edges.
Beat yolk and water; brush over pies. Cut slits in top crust. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 16 servings (2 pies).
