Description

Need an epic 4th of July dessert idea or a classy American flag dessert… the American flag pie is for you! This easy slab pie recipe is made directly onto a cookie sheet and filled with tarty blueberries and sweet strawberries.


Scale

Ingredients

For Strawberries:
2 Lbs of strawberries
1/2 Cup of granulated sugar
Zest and juice of one lemon
2 Teaspoons of cinnamon
5 Tablespoons of corn starch
For Blueberries:
1 Pint of blueberries
4 Tablespoons of granulated sugar
1/2 Teaspoon of cinnamon
Zest and juice of a 1/4 of a lemon
2 Tablespoons of corn starch
For Crust:
3 Prepared pie dough disks (from scratch or pre-made)
1 Egg
1 Tablespoon of milk or cream

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450 F.

In a large mixing bowl toss strawberries, granulated sugar, lemon zest & juice, cinnamon, and corn starch.

In a small separate bowl mix together blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, zest and lemon juice, and corn starch.
 
Arrange two pie dough disks on the bottom of the baking sheet. Create (3) 10-inch pie dough ropes and stack them onto each other in a square in the top left corner for the ‘star’ section. Fill in two separate sections with blueberries and strawberries. 
 
With the third pie dough disk create ‘stars’ with a cookie cutter and use a pizza cutter to create ‘stripes’. Arrange pie dough to create a flag. In a small bowl whisk together egg and cream. Use a pastry brush to brush all dough with egg wash. 
 
Bake at 450 F for 15 minutes and reduce heat to 375 F and bake another 35-40 minutes or until pie is cooked through and dough is golden brown. 


Notes

If the edges begin to brown too quickly or burn, wrap lightly with foil for the remainder of cook time.
