Julie Schuster's favorite pie recipe from Cuisine Magazine (August 2007 issue). Julie says: "I usually use less about 1/4 c less sugar than the recipe calls for when I make this pie. Use the best berries that you can find, however! For the crust, keep the vodka in the freezer so it's nice and cold, and use ice water. You can add more if the dough isn't sticking together. Most importantly, don't forget to invite me over for a slice!"
