Mixed Berry Pie


  • 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.
