3 Berry Slab Pie

Wednesday is the last day of work for all the staff at the bus garage where my sweetheart works...another end of a school year.  The day will be celebrated with a BBQ potluck.  I decided a nice slab pie would be a great addition as a dessert.  It can be served topped with ice cream or whipped cream.

3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
3/4 cup plus 1 to 2 tablespoons 2% milk
1 egg yolk
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
6-8 c. of berries in any combination-I used strawberries, blueberries and raspberries

Pie crust
Mix flour and salt.  Cut in butter using a food processor until the butter is crumbly.  Slowly mix in the milk and egg yolk.  Form into 2 balls of dough-one larger than the other.  Flatten the balls to disc shape, wrap in saran wrap and put in freezer for about 20 minutes.

Take dough out, roll the larger ball into a large rectangle, slightly bigger than a 13 x 9 pan.  Put into a 13 x 9 pan.  It should cover the bottom and sides.  Roll out the remaining dough for the top.

Mix the berries, sugar,  and cornstarch.  Pour onto the pie dough in the 13 x 9 pan. Spread to cover crust.  Add top crust over the berries.  Cut several slits on the top crust.  Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.
