This delectable, juicy blueberry and grape pie, with its delicate, flaky crust, is the perfect early fall dessert.

Ingredients

For crust

  • 3 1/2 cup crust (490 g)
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. salt (kosher)
  • 2 1/2 sticks or 1 1/4 cup (300 g) unsalted cold butter
  • 1/3 cup of ice-cold water
  • 1/3 cup bourbon

For filling

  • 3 mugs (455 g or 1 pound) grapes
  • 3 mugs (455 g or 1 pound) blueberries
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, seeded, and grated on a box grater with the coarse hole
  • A quarter cup (150 g) sugar granules, white
  • A quarter cup (35 g) flour made from tapioca (or cornstarch)
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinaigrette
  • A half teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt

To put together

  • A little extra flour to sprinkle on the rolling surface
  • 1 big yolk of an egg
  • 2 tbsp. white sugar, granulated or effervescent

Directions

  • In a large mixing basin, combine the flour, sugar, and salt to make the crust dough. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes and toss with the flour to coat. Flatten the butter cubes with your fingertips until they are completely shattered. Begin pressing and squeezing the butter between your fingertips until the ingredients clump together. Toss the mixture with a fork to incorporate the water and vodka until it forms a dough. Add a bit of extra flour and fold it in if the mixture seems too wet, but the dough is supposed to be moist. If the dough appears to be drying out, add another tablespoon or two of water. Split the dough in half, then gather and flatten one half into a large 1/2-inch thick disc. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap securely and repeat with the remaining dough. Refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight.
  • Once the dough has cooled, make the filling by combining all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and gently mixing to coat all of the ingredients.
  • On a floured work surface, roll out one disc of dough into a 10-inch round circle, then fit it into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Fill the pie crust with the grape and blueberry filling. Cut the other disc dough into strips after rolling it out to the same size. Turn the pie 90 degrees and arrange the second-longest strip perpendicular to the first over the filling in the center. The pie should have an “X” on it. Turn the third and fourth pieces of dough 90 degrees and arrange them to the right and left of the central strip. Turn the dough 90 degrees and insert two more strips, raising the strips up to “weave” the strips above and below the previously placed strips. Continue to top the pie until it is completely covered, keeping the short pastry strips for the pie’s ends. Crimp the sides of the pie in a decorative manner, folding the top crust’s ends into the edges.
  • Chill the crust in the fridge for 15 minutes before serving. Preheat oven to 400°F while the pie chills. Place the pie on a rimmed baking sheet to collect any drips when it has chilled. Brush the top of the pie crust with an egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of water mixture. Sprinkle sugar on top of the pie and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for another 60 to 80 minutes, or until the filling is bubbling hot. Halfway through baking, take a look at the pie. To avoid burning, cover the crust with aluminum foil if it begins to brown too quickly. Serve hot or at room temperature, but leave aside for a few minutes to allow the filling to firm up.
