Ozark Mountain Berry Pie

This pie is one of Taste of Home’s 100 most requested recipes.  So in honor of National Pie Day, January 23, I made this delicious pie.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, opt.
  • Dash salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Pastry for a double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1 cup halved fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 3/4 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, diced

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, if desired, salt and water until smooth; add the blueberries.  Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.  Set aside to cool slightly.

Line pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge.  Gently fold the strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, lemon juice and butter into the blueberry mixture.  Pour into pastry; make a lattice crust.  Trim, seal and flute edges.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees; bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly.  Cool on a wire rack.  Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 8 servings.

This is delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.
