Mustikka-vadelmapiirakka

Hard to say…easy to make!

That really is just a fancy way of saying “Raspberry Blueberry Pie” in Finnish.  A few years back I lived in Finland for the summer and fell in love with the array of fresh berries at the outdoor market in Helsinki.  There I am by a strawberry vendor!

Last week I spotted this gorgeous array of berries at the Studio City farmer’s market closer to my home in California.  I was flooded with inspiration for recipes I came to know and love while living abroad.  (I’d like to say that “mustikka-vadelmapiirakka” instantly popped into my head, but honestly, I don’t speak Finnish that well…)

I love this recipe because it is so easy to prepare and embraces the beauty of summer berries.  It is the perfect dessert for the holiday weekend!
