All The Princesses are so excited to have Rapunzel enter the Royal Court as the 10th Disney Princess and we thought it would be fun to have a tea party in her honor!
Besides, we just love to have themed tea parties for holidays, birthdays and even an unbirthday.

Snow White has put down her tiara to prepare a most magical and tasty Gooseberry pie for The Princess Tea Party.

Thanks to her work as a scullery servant in her stepmother's castle, Snow White is quite knowledgeable about cooking, particularly pies. As you may recall, Gooseberry pie was a favorite amoung the dwarves. It was the wicked witch who turned her against making it by suggesting apple pie instead.
Queen: All alone, my pet?
Snow White: Why... why, yes, I am, but...
Queen: The... the little men are not here?
Snow White: No, they're not, but...
Queen: [Sniffing] Mm-hmm. Baking pies?
Snow White: Yes, gooseberry pie.
Queen: It's apple pies that make the menfolks' mouths water. Pies made from apples like these. Snow White: Oh, they do look delicious.
Queen: Yes, but wait 'til you taste one, dearie. Like to try one? Go on. Go on, have a bite.

Snow White's Gooseberry & Mixed Fruit Pie 

Preheat oven to 300º degrees.

Pie Crust Dough:
3 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter cut into ¼ inch pieces
4 tablespoons Crisco (or substitute: margarine (1 cup shortening = 1 cup + 2 tablespoons margarine)
Sift the flour, sugar, and salt into a large bowl. Using your fingers 
(I cut it in with a pastry knife) work in the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 2 tablespoons ice water and work with your fingers until the water is incorporated and the dough comes together. Add more water if needed.

Spray the inside of a 9x13x2 inch glass or ceramic baking dish with a 
non-stick coating (I use Baker's Joy). Roll out pie dough on a lightly floured surface (I use a cold marble slab) and line the baking dish with dough (as for an apple pie)

Gooseberry/Mixed Berry Filling:
2  cups gooseberries (fresh or 1 can drained)
3 cups frozen (don't thaw) mixed berries
½ cup Sugar
1 ½ cups Brown sugar
½ teaspoon Nutmeg – ground
1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ cup Flour
1 egg beaten
Sift dry ingredients together. Combine egg, with dry mixture. Stir in gooseberries and mixed berries. Pour into pastry lined 9 inch pie pan. Cover with top crust, crimp edges and prick with fork. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
The *official* Snow White Gooseberry Pie recipe can be found in this Disney Recipe book
The pie must cool for at least an hour to get a good cut on each slice. Alas, Snow White was so excited about Rapunzel's welcoming that her most magical Gooseberry pie didn't turn out quite as planned. No matter, tish-tosh the Magical Gooseberry Blend tea is delicious.
