For the Sweet Pastry Crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2-4 tablespoons cold water

For the Filling:

  • 4 cups fresh crowberries, cleaned and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


1. Prepare the Sweet Pastry Crust:

1- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt.

2- Add the chilled butter cubes to the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter or your fingertips, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3- Add the beaten egg and 2 tablespoons of cold water to the flour-butter mixture. Mix until the dough starts to come together, adding more water as needed, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough holds together when pressed.

4- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gather it into a ball, flatten it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Prepare the Filling:

1- In a medium saucepan, combine the crowberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest (if using), and ground cinnamon (if using). Stir well to combine.

2- Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook the mixture, stirring frequently, until the crowberries release their juices and the mixture thickens, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

3. Assemble the Pie:

1- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a 9-inch pie dish.

2- On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled pastry dough into a circle large enough to fit the pie dish, about 1/8 inch thick.

3- Carefully transfer the rolled-out dough to the prepared pie dish, gently pressing it into the bottom and sides. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges.

4- Pour the cooled crowberry filling into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.

5- If desired, roll out any extra dough to create a lattice or decorative topping for the pie.

6- Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

7- Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before serving.

4. Serve and Enjoy:

1- Slice the Greenland Crowberry Pie into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.

2- Optionally, you can serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.

3- Store any leftover pie in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat slices in the microwave or oven before serving, if desired.

Enjoy this traditional Greenlandic dessert, showcasing the unique and flavorful crowberries harvested from the Arctic wilderness!
