7 cups fresh or frozen berries
3⁄4 cup sugar (tart) or 1 1⁄2 cups sugar (sweet)
1/3 cup instant tapioca
¼ tsp. salt
Mix together and let stand while you make your favorite crust. Bake at
350° for 45 min. Bake 15 minutes longer if using frozen berries.
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
7 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/3 cup chilled solid vegetable shortening, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
6 tablespoons (about) ice water
To Prepare Crust:
Blend flour, sugar, and salt in processor. Add butter and shortening; using on/off turns, cut in until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 5 tablespoons ice water and process until moist clumps form, adding more water by teaspoonfuls if mixture is dry. Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic and chill at least 1 hour.
