Heavenly Fruit Slab Pie

Let me show you how easy slab pies are! Unlike traditional round pies, you can roll slab pies into any shape you want as long as it fits onto a sheet pan. This mixed berry slab pie uses a super flaky all butter pie crust and extra juicy berry filling. This is a very easy way to make and serve pie!

Summer pie season is here and that’s nothing to take lightly. Let’s make a free-form mixed berry slab pie with a flaky all-butter pie crust, juicy strawberries, fresh blackberries, and a squeeze of lemon to brighten up the whole dessert. I love slab pies because not only are they 100x easier than an actual pie, they’re essentially a giant pop-tart. If that doesn’t convince you, I’m not sure much else will. But I’ll give it a shot!

Start this recipe with the same pie crust used for apple slab pie. This pie crust recipe is essentially my traditional all butter pie crust, but it yields 3 pie crusts instead of 2. (Slab pies are larger, so we need more pie dough.) You know I’m a cheerleader for the shortening and butter combination in pie crust, but I find this particular crust is fantastic for slab pie. It’s a wonderful balance of tender and crisp and browns beautifully in the oven.

The pie dough must chill for a couple hours, so it’s easiest to prepare the crust in advance. It can hang out in the refrigerator for a few days or in the freezer for 3 months. When you’re ready to make the mixed berry slab pie, don’t stress over rolling out the pie dough. Unlike traditional round pies, slab pies are no-fuss. Let the pie dough take on whatever shape, as long as it’s about 1/8-inch thick and can fit onto your baking pan.
