Welcome to another delicious edition of Tuesdays With Dorie: Baking With Julia!
I know I’ve not participated since April…cringe!!! It was because I did not and could not find the proper ingredients for a few of the recipes, here in Japan. So sadly I did not continue. I am back!! I will continue on and if I can not find the right ingredients, I will make do
After reading comments about people having issues with the dough for this recipe, I was a little scared,lol. One thing I dread in baking is making pie dough or any kind of crust dough, this is a recent fear, since I moved to Japan my doughs don’t come out like they used to.
I made the dough in my food processor and it came together great! I chilled it for several hours. I have no AC and the heat and humidity is insane here, so I worry about doughs with good amounts of butter. I feared it would melt! It did not.
It was easy to roll out, I moved quickly so it would not stick. I did have one small tear I tried to fix but in the end it leaked out from it a little. The recipe called for optional honey and I decided to use it as well as the sugar, I believe it was a great choice!
I chose blueberries & cherries, a perfect combination in my opinion. It baked perfectly and in 35 minutes. My husband called me this afternoon as he took it to work today and he said it was wonderful and those he shared it with, loved it. He said he really enjoyed the flavors of the berries and he said he really liked the crust! It was a winner
