If a fruity pie is your answer to a delicious dessert, then you will LOVE this one! The following recipe, we used four different types of berries. Use what you can find, either frozen or fresh - there is no right or wrong answer. If you like your pie more tart than others, play with the amount of lemon juice. Add more of it if you like. Decrease the amount of sugar. Baking is only as fun as you make it.
This pie recipe will serve eight people. In the real world, more like six.
This is what you will need:
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
3 cups berries (preferably a mixture of raspberry, blackberry, blueberry and strawberry)
1 large apple, cored, peeled and grated
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
pie crust for a 9 inch pie, bottom and top
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
sugar for sprinkling
This is what you do:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, mix your sugar and flour together. Add berries and apple as well as the lemon juice and gently toss until your fruit is well coated. If using frozen fruit, make sure it is thawed before mixing.
Pour your fruit mixture into your pie shell and dot with your butter. Cover your pie with pastry, trim the pie edges and crimp. Be sure and cut several slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape. Top with sugar if you desire.
Bake for 50-65 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the juice of the fruit is bubbling through the slits in the top crust. Cool on a wire rack.
