I made the pie hole with a maple leaf cookie cutter.

For Thanksgiving, I wanted to bake a Blackberry Pie for a dear friend and neighbor. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry and was only able to find one 1/2 pint of blackberries. Since she loves all berries, I was able to improvise and came up with this multi-berry Fruits of the Forest Berry Pie.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • double 9-inch pie crust pastry
  • 1/2 pint blackberries
  • 1/2 pint raspberries
  • 1/2 pint blueberries
  • 1- 21 ounce can strawberry pie filling
  • milk
  • sugar

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wash and drain berries. Press bottom pie dough into glass pie plate. Place berries in pie crust in even amounts. Pick strawberries out of pie filling. Spread out strawberries amoung other berries. Fill pie shell with rest of can filling. Only fill to just under inside rim of pie plate. (Save remaining filling for other uses.) Cover with either latticed or vented top crust. Paint pie crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake Fruits of the Forest Berry Pie for 40-45 minutes. Tent edges of pie crust if necessary.

too tart, Member snperch

I just mixed all together in bowl , then poured into crust. This is not sweet enough considering all the added berries. I added 1/2 C sugar to the second pie. Much better. Used a deep-dish pie plate. Very good.
