Mixed Berry Pie
I’m a sucker for pie, especially berry pie. Cakes and cookies I could easily do without, but warm pie out of the oven – it’s my kryptonite. To keep the pies on the lighter side, I only use the crust on top. I used the least amount of sugar I could to sweeten them without the filling getting too tart, if you’re berries are very sweet you could probably use less sugar.
With Valentine’s in mind, I used heart shaped cookie cutter to cut a heart out of the center. Other shapes would work, such as stars for Memorial Day, or simple poke holes all around.
Helpful Tips to Make Pie:
- To make this gluten-free you can turn this into a fruit crisp and top it with chopped nuts and oats.
- The mixed berry pie filling is easy to make yourself. You can use frozen berries instead of fresh.
- If you wish to use only one type of berry, such as blueberries only, use 3 3/4 cups of fruit.
