Servings: Serves 6-8
Combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add butter, working it into mixture with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse sand. Add orange juice; stir with a fork until dough holds together when squeezed. Shape it into a disk; cover with plastic wrap. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients except egg yolks, lightly crushing berries to moisten. Set aside. Working on a floured surface, roll out dough into a 12-inch circle, then transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix yolks with 1 tablespoon water to form an egg wash. Brush outer 2 inches of dough circle with wash. Arrange fruit in center of dough. Fold and loosely pleat dough around edges, brushing dough with egg wash to help pleats stick. Bake until fruit is bubbly and crust is deep golden, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool 10 minutes; serve warm or at room temperature. If desired, serve with ice cream on the side.
