In this recipe, I used my favorite summer berries: blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. The pie has a crispy, sweet crust, dark chocolate cream, flavorful forest berries, and is filled with whipped cream. Feel free to choose whatever berries you like. This fresh berry pie reminds us that berries are still in season and the summer isn’t completely gone. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
Fresh berry pie with chocolate cream and whipped cream
- 300 grams (2 3/4 cups) all-purpose flour
- 100 grams (1/2 cup) sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, coarse
- 200 grams (1 cup) butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 200 grams (7 oz) dark chocolate
- 400 grams (2 cups) fresh berries, e.g. raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
- 3 deciliter (1 1/4 cups) heavy cream
- In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar and salt.
- Add butter and egg and combine it in a mixer or food processor. The dough is ready when the butter and egg are absorbed and the dough starts to come together.
- Pour out the crumbly dough onto a clean, flat surface. Knead the dough until it stays together – don't overdo it. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Heat up 1,5 deciliter (1/2 cup) of heavy cream in a saucepan. Turn off the heat just before it starts to boil.
- Add the dark chocolate into the hot heavy cream and stir gently until all chocolate has melted.
- Cover the saucepan in plastic wrap and let it cool in the refrigerator.
Crust – continued
- Grease a pie pan and take out the cooled dough.
- Press the dough into the pie pan using your fingers to make an even layer of dough.
- Use a fork to make holes in the dough to prevent the pie from rising in the oven.
- Bake the crust at 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes.
Build up the pie
- Spread out the chocolate cream on the bottom of the crust.
- Use the remaining heavy cream to make whipped cream. Finally, decorate the pie with fresh berries and whipped cream.
