[ Recipe: Thyme & Cinnamon Berry Pie ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
thyme & cinnamon berry pie

Lots of berries pair well with herbs and spices. Try to use fruit that’s in season. You can use frozen fruit, just don't thaw it first.

⅔ cup light brown sugar
⅓ cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 pounds berries
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
1 egg yolk

Preheat the oven to 425° F.

In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon and thyme. Fold in berries until well combined.

Pour fruit mixture into a prepared pie crust; dot filling with pats of butter. Top pie with second crust; seal and flute edges. Mix egg yolk with a teaspoon of water; brush over edges and top of crust. Bake 45-50 minutes. Let cool for 30-45 minutes before serving.

Note: This recipe can also be made into an enticing (and lower-stress) galette as shown here. If you decide to try this, be sure not to use a filling that is too watery, blueberries are a natural, and don't use too much filling or the crust won't hold up.
