Summer Treat: Bumbleberry Pie

I'd like to take credit for this pie, but I'll give it to my mother. We are all visiting some family friends tomorrow and Mom wanted to make a dessert from the Amish Cook's Baking Book.  I highly recommend "bumbleberry pie" as a refreshing summer treat.  So that is what she fixed.  Rachel and I have made this pie several times ourselves and it really is delicious.  As hot as these summer days have been here in Ohio a pie filled with fresh fruit is a perfect dessert to make. Give a kudos to my mother, I think her pie - based on these photos - turned out quite well.  My father was nice enough to take several shots, so enjoy!  And if you are looking for something to fix, try bumbleberry pie. 

Ingredients 2 disks pie dough
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries, chopped
1 cup chopped rhubarb
1 cup peeled and chopped McIntosh apples
1 cup sugar, plus more for topping
1?3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
2. For the pie dough crust: Roll both disks of pie dough out to a 1?8-inch thickness on a floured surface. Fit one of the dough disks into a 9-inch pie pan. Trim the overhang to be even with the top of the pie pan. Set the other rolled-out crust aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine all of the remaining ingredients until well blended.
4. Spoon the fruit filling into the piecrust. Use some water to wet the rim of the bottom crust, which will help both crusts adhere together.
5. Cover the pie with the top crust and crimp the crusts together all the way around. Make 3 slits in the crust. Sprinkle the top with a little sugar.
6. Bake for 15 minutes, and then decrease the heat to 325°F and bake for another 30 minutes, until the crust is golden and the fruit filling begins to bubble out through the slits.
7. Cool on a wire rack or windowsill until the pie is firm, about 45 minutes. Store any leftovers in a sealed cake safe. The pie will keep for about 5 days.
