Mixed Berry Pie

Pin It
This recipe is the best because it's super easy, somewhat sweet, somewhat tart, and you can use any type of berries you want. Don't like a certain kind of berry? Double up on something else. You can really use whatever you want as long as you keep the same measurements. It's colorful and festive and would be a beautiful addition to your Memorial Day cookout. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup halved fresh strawberries
  • 3/4 cup fresh blackberries
  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts 
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

For filling, in a large saucepan, whisk sugar, cornstarch, salt and water until sugar dissolved and mixture is smooth; add blueberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Gently fold raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and lemon juice into blueberry mixture. 

Line a 9-inch pie plate with one of the pie crusts. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate. Using a slotted spoon, add filling; dot with butter.

Cut remaining dough into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Arrange over filling in a lattice pattern. Trim and seal strips to edge of bottom pastry; flute edge. Bake 10 minutes.

Reduce oven setting to 350 degrees F; bake 45-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. (I recommend covering the outer edge crust with aluminum foil or a crust shield 10 minutes into baking or once it starts to brown.) Cool on a wire rack.

  1. Could I use frozen fruit instead? :)

    1. I haven't tried but I'm sure you could! Just make sure you use a slotted spoon when scooping the filling into the crust because frozen fruits release more water and you don't want the filling too runny :)

    2. Thanks!! Giving it a shot today :)
