Recipe by Jake Cohen @jakecohen

STEP 1
Make the dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Using your fingers, toss in the grated butter to coat. Add water and vodka and continue to knead until a dough forms. Divide dough into 2 disks and cover each with plastic. Let rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

STEP 2
Meanwhile prepare the filling: In a large bowl, toss all filling ingredients together. Set aside.

STEP 3
Assemble the pie: Preheat the oven to 400°F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disk of the pie dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to a 9-inch pie dish pressing to fit, leaving at least 1 inch of overhang on the sides. Spoon filling over dough, spreading in an even layer.

STEP 4
Roll out other disk of dough into a 10-inch square. Using a knife or a pastry cutter, cut 6 1½-inch strips of dough (alternatively, cut 18 ½-inch strips of dough and make 6 braids, each with 3 strips). Place 3 strips horizontally across fruit, then pull alternating strips back and lay the additional strips perpendicular. Trim off extra dough, then fold under edge to make a rim. Using your fingers, crimp edges of the pie.

STEP 5
Brush dough liberally with beaten egg, then sprinkle turbinado sugar over top. Bake until crust is golden brown, 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing and serving.
