simple berry pie

Post by Doreen on January 23rd 2010, 1:31 am

I copied this idea, but I had blueberries from Costco and a small bag of mixed berries from the grocery store.
I used 3 T of cornstarch instead of the tapioca.
I keep a bag of frozen mixed berries from Costco in my freezer - and pull some out for quick and easy desserts. We've had them over ice cream, with shortcake and whipped cream, in cobblers, cakes, and muffins, and in pies. Last week I made a pie. It's a simple fix: Preheat oven to 425˚. Take 5-6 cups of frozen mixed berries and put in a large bowl so they start to thaw. Toss them with about 1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar or Splenda, 2 Tablespoons of melted butter, and 2 Tablespoons of tapioca (the tapioca helps thicken the filling). When they're partially thawed (or even totally thawed), pour into an unbaked pie shell and top with another crust. Use a shield or foil to protect the edge of the crust from burning. Bake for 10 minutes at 425˚, then lower the temperature to 350˚ and bake another 40 - 45 minutes.


and I baked it in my toaster oven for about 35 -40 mins. It was a little too full, but yummy.

It didn't last long, so that usually means it was pretty good.
